We did it!!! 50K subscribers!

I can’t believe it, but a few minutes ago I got a subscription notice, and, checking the figures since we were close to the Magic Number, saw this:

Three things:

  1. I’m amazed and delighted.
  2. I’m going to watch that figure for a while, for occasionally the numbers drop a wee bit because of either unsubscribing or WordPress’s data systems.
  3. I have the name of the person who subscribed right when it ticked over to 50K. Now I can’t be absolutely sure that that person is #50,000, but I planned to offer a prize to the person who appeared to bring us to that goal. I didn’t want to say that in advance because it’s a bogus way to boost subscriptions. But if the number stays at 50K or above, I’ll reveal the prize and inform the person (I can’t reveal names without permission).

        Same here. There seems to be a lot of double-posts coming out of the machinery. Double-tweets too.

    O Joy! That’s wonderful news and a well-deserved milestone, Jerry.

    I hope you will get a plaque made up of that magic number.

    Alright!!! You have the population of a decent-sized city following you.

      Would a population of 40,000 people be an indecent size city? 😉
      I would label 50K population as a small city or large town.
