Wow… For a (temporarily? Maybe!) dead blog, we had quite a year. We received this summary of our annual stats from WordPress, and I have to admit, I delayed clicking it for fear of depression, a strong sense of failure, self-recriminations, etc.
It turns out, we had a big year anyway, especially with fans in India (you guys!!!!) and folks searching for assless chaps (which thanks to our dearly departed BiscuitDoughJones, we know is a misnomer – chaps are, by definition, assless). She’s not dead, you guys, she just got married and had other things to do.
At any rate, we are considering blogging again. We’ve been in the trenches, team, and there’s a lot to report. For those of you who were regular readers back when we were more responsible posters, we can’t thank you enough; blogging for no pay can feel like a seriously thankless exercise, until someone posts a comment. Many of you have blogs of your own, and feel this pain. Others of you stopped by just to offer hilarious, thoughtful, and provocative commentary; some of you just had discount Viagra to promote, or needed to let bitches know that they be sluts.
Thanks to all of our regulars: SarahHeartburn, MishBish, AspiringExpatriate, and Shana are just a few that come to mind (there are others of you – if I ever get my shit together to do a thank you post, I think you know if you’d be on it). I think I might be ready to start blogging again, and will check in with my compatriots. It’s a worthy exercise, but so much (SO MUCH) more gratifying and interesting and fun for the absolutely stellar commenters we were so lucky to gain.
So, again: With so many worthy and funny blogs and Tumblrs (TUMBLER, GOD I JUST CANNOT) out there, we are sincerely grateful for the time you spent visiting our humble commode. So, thank you again, and if you have a story you think needs to be shared in this space, email us at buttercuppunch at gmail.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 180,000 times in 2011. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 8 days for that many people to see it.
