One Million

in blogging, personal and self-promotion

one millionI’m proud and honored to announce that this past Sunday, January 3rd, The Curvature hit its 1,000,000th visitor since its humble beginnings two and a half years ago.

So, I wanted to take this moment to thank all of the readers, commenters, people who send in tips, and especially all of the other feminist-type bloggers who have provided such great support and community over the years. You’re all amazing.

I’m also aware that I’ve been blogging an awful lot less these past few months than in the past. Rest assured, I’m working on changing that. This dusty old blog theme is also in desperate need of replacement, so in the next few months, you can hope to see a new design, and hey, even maybe a new logo, coming your way. Who knows, maybe you’ll even get a guest-post or two.

Thanks again, and here’s to hoping for a million more.

DEAR PRUDENCE, I mean Cara!!

HERE COMES THE SUN!
GOOD MORNING GOOD MORNING!

FROM ME TO YOU, I WANT TO TELL YOU, with WORDS OF LOVE, I want to TWIST AND SHOUT, and do THE HIPPY HIPPY SHAKE!

Don’t SLOW DOWN because this is obviously being read HERE THERE AND EVERYWHERE ACROSS THE UNIVERSE and I’VE GOT A FEELING this’ll lead to a wonderful REVOLUTION of REAL LOVE. Don’t let anyone tell you YOU CAN’T DO THAT. You’ve got THE INNER LIGHT, M[S]. MOONLIGHT!

Continue to THINK FOR YOURSELF, TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE, TELL ME WHY. I WILL DIG IT, I WILL!

IN MY LIFE it seems like only YESTERDAY (or was it THE NIGHT BEFORE?) that I found this blog and it’s GETTING BETTER all the time!

I FEEL FINE you’re not the PAPERBACK WRITER of “IF I NEEDED SOMEONE, TELL ME WHY THIS BOY!?!”, or “PLEASE PLEASE ME: I DON’T WANT TO SPOIL THE PARTY but YOUR FEET’S TOO BIG”, or “FOR NO ONE: TWO OF US in MISERY”, or “CHAINS: YOU’VE REALLY GOT A HOLD ON ME!” or the teen angst trilogy: (1)”WHEN I GET HOME I’LL CRY INSTEAD WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS”, (2)”IT’S ALL TOO MUCH–TOO MUCH MONKEY BUSINESS: YOUR MOTHER SHOULD KNOW I’M SO TIRED YOU NEVER GIVE ME YOUR MONEY, DAY TRIPPER!!”, and (3)”I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER: IF I FELL, I’M DOWN”.

I WILL always love A DAY IN THE LIFE of your thoughts and analysis, EIGHT DAYS A WEEK. EVERY LITTLE THING. You’ve got SOMETHING here. It’s special. YES IT IS!

Remember THINGS WE SAID TODAY BECAUSE IT WON’T BE LONG, or LONG LONG LONG, until you reach 2,000,000. (Remember ONE AFTER 909?)

ANYTIME AT ALL, IF YOU’VE GOT TROUBLE, YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO: YOU KNOW MY NAME (LOOK UP THE NUMBER)!

GOOD NIGHT. GOLDEN SLUMBERS.

Julian Real

P.S. I LOVE YOU(R BLOG) and I mean REAL LOVE. THE END. (HER MAJESTY)

Oh, Cara, hearty congratulations! This is one of the best blogs on the Internet by a long shot, and I’m so so glad I found it. May many more hits and much blogular pleasure be in your future. *party times*

Hi Cara,

I mostly lurk here, but I wanted to say congratulations on your 1 millionth visit.

Yours is the first feminist blog I ever read, and your passion for improving the lives of women from all walks of life has affected me deeply.

So, ::raises coffee cup:: here’s to very many more visits and a long, prosperous future for the blog. :)

Short of me not having the internet, I can not think of a single reason why I would stop reading. You have such a brilliant touch for writing.

Thanks for being awesome Cara!

While everyone else might be all “what was THAT about?!” I figured you, Cara, would appreciate it! lol

A belated HOORAY!

Julian’s comment was pure gold. Oh, and I tried to “like” this post and then remembered this isn’t tumblr so I figured I’d comment instead lol =)

Thank you for all the posts! You’re posts often bring light to bad things, but I think that there are things that should be exposed.
