With the onset of Fall, I compose this note as the month of September is coming to an end.
I look around sadly at the long pants, long sleeves, and covered frames that, just a few weeks ago, were so much more interesting to behold.
I am filled with sadness.
The past month has been a record-breaker for Tattoosday. When we first spun off from BillyBlog, we garnered 120 hits in the first three weeks of our infancy.
Last year, I was amazed by my progress, in September '08 we racked up 13,351 hits.
And this September, when I anticipated a drop off from a record August, Tattoosday soared into uncharted territory, on pace to top 38, 000 hits on the last day of the month. This may not seem like a big deal, but blogging is often lonely, and the number of hits is often the only measure of recognition we receive.
So, the summer ink is running dry, but despair not, I will continue to spot tattoos, although perhaps not at the dizzying rate of the past few months.
I have a backlog of posts and a head full of ideas to keep us entertained as the leaner months loom.
I thank you all for your continued readership and participation. I am very appreciative of your support!
