Friday August 29, 2014 is a day that will go down in history at Evil Squirrel’s Nest! Not only did we finally get to the game show part of my Millionaire story that you’ve been waiting ever so long for…. not only did I dredge up out of the warped crevices of my brain the fun and funny entry for Bacon’s Elf on a Shelf giveaway that proved very popular…. not only did I gain my 750th follower, of which maybe 50 or so might even be real people…. but The Nest also hit a nice round number in a category that means so very much to bloggers who want to be seen and heard….
Sometime yesterday evening, I got my 50,000th hit on this blog!
Yes, I know the numbers aren’t always what they seem… and my blog pales in comparison to many others out there who
cheat use those other social media platforms to gain a wider audience…. but I still think that’s something to celebrate! 50,000 views of my blog since I started it on Christmas Eve 2011! I’d like to take this time to thank each and every one of you who read my blog… especially my loyal, regular readers for whom so many of that 50K belongs to you!
This week’s Saturday Squirrel is a picture I’ve been saving for just such a happy occasion. It’s one of the photos I took when I visited our local park back on June 13th, and damned, if that isn’t one of the happiest looking squirrels I’ve ever managed to capture on
film a digital card! I can’t wait to see how he reacts when I get my 100,000th hit….
He’s happy, I’m happy, and I hope you all have a very happy weekend!
Congrats! wait, you’re naked, aren’t you?
Underneath all this fur….. yes I am!
Congrats, I’m happy with you! I like this squirrel, you should have a competition for a caption :o)
The winner gets a bushel of nuts!
Congratulations, 50, 000 is some feat!!
Yay, a happy squirrel you are!
Happy and Evil go together so well!
50,000 is the Rubicon which you have now crossed. The great thing about followers is that 5000 followers from now, the same 50 real people will be the ones you hear from 🙂 Now you’ve got Impressive Numbers. Welcome to the club. May they become ever more impressive.
(I don’t cheat. I wouldn’t know how.)
Impressive Numbers, yes, but I’m still a ways away from that magic 1,337th follower! 🙂
Of all of the numbers, the followers count is the least meaningful. I have no idea who or what is following me, but I guarantee it’s nowhere NEAR the number they say it is. Same 50 people, I’m tellin’ ya!
Congratulations on being hit on 50K times!
Hit on…. as in, smacked upside the head! I think most of those came from Merby…
Hahaha, the cheaters who use other social media. Luuurve it. Congrats on your 50,000. My numbers are close to yours and seem to just sit for some reason. But who cares, cause I know a generous squirrel who gives away shirts! So, like, what do I have to kiss to get one? 🙂
There’s a generous squirrel who gives away T-shirts!?!? Where!?!? I want one!!!
Ha, at $16 a pop (I fucking hate Cafepress’ ripoff shipping charges), I can’t afford to be too generous. But there’s always the next Contest of Whatever coming up in February!
big, tough, fair dinkum, virtual, aussie hugs. (((((( )))))))
Aussie hugs!!! YAY!!! Koala hugs!!! 🙂
Yes, those both are numbers impressive enough to celebrate, sir ESN. Congratulations, and the happy squirrel smile is oh-so-appropriate!
Thank you from me and the happy squirrel!
Love the happy squirrel picture! Congrats on the numbers.
Ooh, congratulations. Glad to have helped in your achiving this!
Wow ! So happy for you. Great numbers. Congratulations !!!

Congrats!!!!! This prompted me to check my stats (not nearly as impressive) but like you I’m thinking, who are these people?? Keep chattering away! 🙂
Thanks you… and I will!
