100,000 page view mark, quick thoughts.

Passing the 100,000 page view mark is call for Celebration, Kool and the Gang style!

I know I’ve mentioned a number of page view milestones throughout the year, and yesterday was a big one.

We passed the 100,000 page view mark mid-afternoon yesterday.

The exciting news, too, is that more than 60 percent of them have come since October 1.

Thanks very much to all who have joined and contributed to the community at some point since last December 21, when I began this project by writing about Beauty Turner’s death.

A couple of other quick thoughts.

The Blind Side replaced New Moon as the top-grossing film in America last week.  I’ll write more about it in the future, and Michael Lewis’ book by the same name is worth reading.

I’m keeping the Israel reading going, and recently finished Amos Elon’s Jerusalem: City of Mirrors.  At this point I’ve read three books about Jerusalem and will devote a post soon to discussing them.

I wrote yesterday about John Carlin’s Playing the Enemy, which is the basis for Invictus. People wanting to learn more about Nelson Mandela’s ability to win over those who had been trained to hate him might consider James Gregory’s Goodbye Bafana, which was turned into a 2007 movie that I have not seen.

Happy 53rd Birthday, Larry Bird!

  1. Congratulations x 100,000 Jeff! You keep cranking out solid content, no fluff and no puff. Interesting spike since October. Any thoughts about the timing?

      Thanks, PT. You’ve been an inspiration on many levels throughout the project! I started using Facebook in June as a way to get the word out, and the post I wrote about President Obama’s being named this year’s Noble Peace Prize recipient seemed to accelerate an upward trend.

      Hope all is well with you. I had a very warm chat with Nona recently and we were talking about you.

      Let’s catch up soon!

      Jeff
