One Hundred Thousand Blog Views

9 11 2016

Southport Fireworks 2011

Recently, my Blog (the one that you are reading now) has celebrated some major milestones. A few months back I published my 500th blog post, WordPress informed me that my blog is officially now 7 years old, and much bigger than those, I have reached the milestone viewing number of 100,000.

100

It’s a big moment for me, as I never thought my blog would even reach that number. In the first 10 months of my blog I reached 1000 views, but I was getting less than 300 views a month. But steadily over the years the viewership has increased, and then declined (which it’s sadly doing right now), but after 7 years of blogging, my blog has been viewed 100,000 views. Now this was last week, but I thought I would still celebrate and have a chance to thank everyone who read and still reads this blog, supporting my writing, my hobby over all these years. So thank you to everyone who has read (and continues to read) my blog, supporting my writing, my hobby over all these years and I hope you will continue to read my blog in the future. Thank you all.

Now to celebrate, I had no real plan other than to say the above, but I thought I would make a post out of this as well. So, how to celebrate? Well, how about a cake; here’s an (old one) I made:

Now for the rest of the post, I thought I would provide you with some possibly interesting Blog Stats. As I have said I have no real plan as to what I am doing, but here are some generic blog stats about my posts and blog that I noted down to present to you (a couple of days ago):

So anyway, thank you to everyone who has viewed and supported this blog over the last 7 years, and I hope you will continue to read this blog as it continues. Now to finish off, why not a celebratory piece of music?

25,000 Blog Views

8 08 2012

This past Saturday I achieved the latest milestone for my blog, 25000 views. Since I discovered that my blog tracks views (early 2010) I have been enthusiastically following them. It was about October 2010 when I hit 1000. In terms of reaching this goal, I thought I would not, at least not by now. My blog was not producing the viewing figures it is now until this past December-January.

So I think it is time to celebrate, but first I thought I would share with you (if you have not seen them already) the 5 Most Viewed Posts on my Blog.

Caramel Chew Chew

1. Top 5 Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Flavours A countdown of my 5 favourite Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream flavours. This was the first post to reach 1000 views.

Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All Out Attack (Toho Co., Ltd. - 2001)

2. The Best Film In The World – Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All Out Attack A film review of my Favourite Film. This blog was once the Most Viewed Blog Post twice, beaten by Dinosaurs Return to Television, then regained its position and then beaten again by Top 5 Ben and Jerry’s Flavours.

Godzilla 1954 - Present

3. A Brief History of Godzilla (100th Post) My Favourite Post to-date. This post gives an in-depth look at The King Of The Monsters.

4. Dinosaurs Return To Television This post was a surprise at how well it did. This post had a link to it on the BBC Web Page for Planet Dinosaur and even after the show finished it was still generating viewing figures. At one point this was the most viewed Blog post and I think the first post to get 500 views. What were the chances of that happening, this blog appearing on the BBC Website.

Godzilla 2014 (Legendary Pictures - 2014)

5. Godzilla News – Super Heroes to Super Lizards Another surprising one. This post was more a short news article about David S. Goyer being hired to write the script for the new Legendary Pictures Godzilla Film.

Well, there you have the 5 most viewed posts on my blog. If you have not read them, please check them out. A big thankyou to everyone who has helped me reach this magnificent milestone and I hope you will continue to come back and read some more Fantastic Posts. Finally, to celebrate, here is a song by the Scorpions, Enjoy (It Is A Fantastic Song).

Top 5 Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Flavours

4 08 2011

I like Ice cream, it is Lovely and Fun.  I also like Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream; they add fun to their Ice Cream by having Experimental and Fun Flavours in their Ice Cream. If they made normal flavours it would not be as good. Another part of the Fun is the Fun names for their Ice Cream like Chunky Monkey and Baked Alaska.

But what is the Best Flavours well I have chosen my top 5 and I am going to share them with you.

5. Chocolate Fudge Brownie (Frozen Yogurt): Low Fat Frozen Yogurt with Chocolate Brownie Pieces – Chocolate Fudge Brownie is lovely by itself but I like the Frozen Yogurt version more. When my Mum buys Ben and Jerry’s from the Shops I prefer to have the Frozen Yogurt, unless she buys any of the Top 4 Flavours.

4. Mint Chocolate Chunk: Mint Ice Cream with Fudge Chunks – At the VUE Cinema in Lancaster they sell Ben and Jerry Milkshakes. They are called a Two Twisted (even though when you ask for a Two Twisted the staff has no idea what you are talking about). You choose 2 flavours and they mix them together to make a milkshake. Well Mint Chocolate Chunk by itself is a brilliant Ice Cream but when you mix it with another flavour it is amazing with that flavour. When I buy a Two Twisted I always (well most times) have Mint Chocolate Chunk. There is only one problem; you cannot buy them in tubs in Great Britain.

3. Baked Alaska: Vanilla Ice Cream with Marshmallow swirls and White Chocolatey Polar Bears – One of the most fun Ice Creams from Ben and Jerry’s. I like it when there are pieces shaped to look like things (Phish Food) and Polar Bears are a lot of fun. Baked Alaska also has a lovely taste.

2. Fossil Fuel: Sweet Cream Ice Cream with Chocolate Cookie Pieces, Chocolatey Peace Signs and a Chocolate Fudge Swirl – Fossil Fuel was one of the Best. Before Mint Chocolate Chunk Fossil Fuel was one of the flavours I used to pick at the Cinema. Fossil Fuel was an amazing flavour and tasted brilliantly. Then it disappeared for a while. Then a few weeks ago it returned. I was so happy and still am. It has changed a bit and the pictures on the front have changed but it is still one of the best flavours around.

1. Caramel Chew Chew: Swirls of Caramel and Chocolate Covered Caramel Chunks swimming  in a sea of Caramel Ice Cream – When I have gone out to the shops with my Mum or Dad and we buy Ben and Jerry’s, Caramel Chew Chew is the one I look out for and want to get. Ok I do vary between Ice Creams from time to time but Caramel Chew Chew is my favourite. The chocolate pieces are a nice touch to a really tasty Ice Cream flavour. Caramel Chew Chew is the Best Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream flavour.

What is your favourite Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream flavour?
