Shoveling off for a little while

I am heading out on vacation for a week, so, as I like to warn you on occasions like this, posting will be sporadic.

Try not to burn the house down while I’m gone, okay?

I’ll leave you with a little something – a podcast I did with the guys at Field Street Forum, who, unlike me, do get deeply into the recruiting weeds, if you’re interested in that kind of stuff.

Behave, you scamps.  We’ll talk real soon.

30,000,000

Every time the blog crosses one of those big numbers of hits, I can’t help but shake my head a little bit.  I never thought I’d ever see that kind of traffic when I started down the blogging road.

I probably don’t say it enough, but thanks to everyone who drops by.  And keep coming.

The Lexicon abides.

I finally got off my butt and updated the Lexicon with a new entry (look under “G”).

Which got me to thinking… obviously, that item will be an endless source of discussion for trolls here, but with a new staff in place, you’d think a lot of the old topics are now defunct.  What’s a troll to do now?

I’ve been issued an old fart card and I know how to use it.

I turn sixty today.  I believe that means I now have official status to yell at fans in Sanford Stadium to sit their asses down even when something exciting is happening.

Other than that, I plan on staying that same upbeat, happy go lucky fellow I’ve always… HEY, YOU KIDS!!!! GET OFF MY BLOG!!!!

Uh, sorry.  Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all.

And now, a brief commercial message

Site traffic is up, but the ad numbers aren’t following.  If you wouldn’t mind clicking on a few of them occasionally (assuming some are of interest, that is), I’d be much obliged. Baby needs a new pair of shoes, and all…

If I switched GTP to being an Auburn site, I could take advantage of a better advertising stipend, but I’m loyal, you know?

Seriously, thanks for your support.

GTP: 2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

About 1,000,000 people visit the Seattle Space Needle every year. This blog was viewed about 5,900,000 times in 2015. If it were the Space Needle, it would take about 6 years for that many people to see it.

Click here to see the complete report.

In a fit of immodesty appreciation, I’d like to add that WordPress’ summary was compiled a couple of days ago.  Since then, GTP has managed to cross the six million views mark for the year and also has exceeded 700,000 for this month.  All I can say to that is “never in my wildest dreams”.

And thanks, of course.
