The plan was to take an entire day off, and I still plan on accomplishing most of that. But I felt I needed to do two things:
First, I want to repeat my request from earlier this week: If you’re running the AJC Peachtree Road Race or watching or volunteering or just passing though Atlanta and you happen upon it … send me a Tweet via Twitter describing your Peachtree experience in 140 characters. (I’m @markbradleyajc, and my Twitter profile page is here.)
The idea is for an enterprising journalist — that’d be me, believe it or not — to take the Tweets and patch them together into some sort of pointillist Peachtree portrait. (My middle name is Andrew, and I adore alliteration.) Don’t know if it’ll work, but I thought we’d try. So please help. I’ll be in your debt. Speaking of which …
I’m already in your debt. I’ve never spoken of page views with you before and don’t plan to make a habit of it, but I’m making an exception today because this little blog just went over two million page views year-to-date.
You should know that I spent last New Year’s Eve in Orlando — Georgia was playing in the Capital One Bowl, as you recall — sulking because the Bradley blog didn’t quite make it to two million in calendar 2008. (The final total was 1,976,901.) And now, with some modifications, we’ve gone past that in roughly half a year.
That mightn’t be a big deal to you, but it sure is to me. And I thank you for your patronage, one and all.
