400 to go. . .

It’s a real countdown to 50,000 now, and I’m beginning to think it will happen. Then, as I said, I’ll be a happy man—or at least as happy as a lugubrious secular Jew can get (I think goys call that state “complacency”). This is my spirit animal:  

Fewer than 500 to go!

Be still, my beating heart! For some reason subscriptions have picked up lately (I suspect it’s the euthanasia posts), so could it be possible that we’ll reach 50,000 subscribers before I leave for Poland in a month?

800 to go!

I have to admit to being a bit excited as the number of subscribers here approaches the 50,000 mark—the size of a respectable American town. We’re nearly there, and perhaps by fall we’ll reach the mark that will make me a happy man:

Readers want to know how to do this, and I have no idea. Could you put your solutions in the comments to this post? Thanks. —Mgmt.

1001 to go!

Here’s the latest count of subscribers (as of 6:15 this morning):   1,001 Dalmatians to go. (Or was that 101?)

Fewer than 1200 to go!

I was going to title this “less than 1200 to go”, but I knew the Language Police would come! At any rate, here is the number of subscribers. As you can see, as of this posting we need only 1184 subscribers to reach the magic number of 50,000, which (if we make it) I’ll consider […]

1,387 subscribers to go

We’re ticking down at a decent pace toward the 50,000 subscriber mark, and though some readers have had the hauteur to tell me that that’s a meaningless figure, it means something to me. 1387 subscribers to go, so we’re more than 97% of the way there. Then I can die a happy man, and no, […]

1720 to go!

I’m very stoked, as I’m approaching my Life Goal of 50,000 subscribers to this site. As of this morning, we have this: At this rate, it won’t be long (perhaps by the end of the year), and then I can die a happy man. BTW, I’m not responsible for that odious word bl*g above.

Note to readers

Tomorrow I’m going to the Imagine No Religion meeting in Toronto (iteration 7), and will be back Monday morning.  The lineup is good, featuring not only people I know, like Richard Dawkins, Matt Dillahunty, Seth Andrews, Chris DiCarlo, and Lawrence Krauss, but those I’d like to meet, including Kelly Carlin and Rob Penczak. INR is […]

It is Grania’s birthday!

I just realized that today is Grania’s birthday. I know she’ll hate my posting this (and she didn’t mention it in the Hili Dialogue she wrote this morning), but it’s a chance for me and the readers to thank her for her service to this website. She has never refused to keep the site going during […]
