Holy smoke! 1,749 visitors in a day? Those are some PZ numbers, I swear. Most of them stem from my post about the atrocious Rattlesnake Roundup that took place this past weekend in Sweetwater, Texas, with lots still coming by for my posts about Starbucks quoting Jonathan Wells on their cups. Regardless, a BIG thank you goes out to PZ for linking here and for all the Pharyngulites for boosting up my numbers so high (now my blog stats look like Mount St. Helens busted out of a completely flat plain, hah). Also, a big thanks to all my regular readers for their support and feedback. I forgot to mention it when it happened, but I’m now well past the 5,000 total reads mark, and while that may be an average week for the likes of some of my favorite sciencebloggers, I’m certainly proud of how this blog is turning out. Oh, and lest I forget, a big thanks to whomever submitted by Asiatic Cheetah article to the ecology blog carnival; I can be a little nervous about submitting my entries being I’m not a full-fledged scientist yet, but I certainly appreciate the help and kick in the butt to get out there and submit my work. Anyway, thanks to everyone who has kept my glued to this machine, typing away for your amusement.
