Of beauty contests and big numbers

I was over at Scott's blog Scott-o-Rama earlier and he was having a contest. Of course I entered, and was fortunate enough to win one of the prizes. Lucky for me, it was the best one--at least I think it was.

The prize was Trantasia, a DVD documentary of a beauty contest out in Las Vegas. The documentary follows the 6 finalists through the rigmarole of the contest using interviews and profiles to flesh out the personalities of each contestant. I suspect it'll be quite... eye opening for me.

In other news my blog finally moved over 100,000 visitors, as measured by unique daily visits.

That's about an average of 100 people a day over the 30 months that I've had my blog. The first few months I had the blog it was rare to have more than 5 visitors a day. My average these days is around 60 but for a while I was indexed highly by Google and as a result I was getting over 500 visits a day. That only lasted a few months but it really amped up my stats.

Oddly enough, it turned out that I was the 100,000th visitor when I went into StatCounter to check on my numbers.

With a name like Trantasia and set in Las Vegas, the DVD sounds like an experience in itself, Dave. Congrats for the win though....

Congratulations on your win, and your stats. Sounds like an interesting DVD - what did you have to do to win...

Are you planning on wearing a dress when you watch your prize?

Uh-uh, Sassy. It's not about cross dressing, it's about cross genitalizing-- and that's not a bridge I'm prepared to cross! But thanks for your lovely comment. :-p
CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU!
I haven't a clue as to how you find all that out...I know you said something about Statcounter, but if you've only had Statcounter for a year and a few months...Well, I don't get it.
I will have to check out that section...if I can find it! LOL!

Michele sent me to say HI, tonight, Dave.

I don't think my Statcounter counts unique visits - I get number of visits per day, and number of page views, I think that's about it. I'm way short of 100,000 though. Michele sent me to congratulate you on reaching that landmark.
