Nine views ago, my blog hit 30,000 views! Although, I’m not like, freaking out about it like, “HOLY COW MY BLOG HIT 30,000 VIEWS!” I am calmly nodding my head in approval. It’s pretty cool and a pretty good feeling that I’ve been able to attract that many views over such a short period of time.
I started my blog over two years ago and my first blog entry was when I visited Kauffman Stadium on April 8th, 2010. Since then, I’ve visited nearly 13 other stadiums all over the United States and even in Japan! That was probably one of my more memorable baseball trips. Hopefully, the baseball season in 2013 will be just as awesome. I hope to make it to Minute Maid Park for opening week and I’m going to try to make it to Wrigley Field and back to U.S Cellular. I’ve managed to make it to a few playoff games and you can read about them here, here, and here!
Baseball has been a blessing in disguise for me. I’ve met so many wonderful and creative geniuses during my trips to the many different baseball stadiums…and I cherish all new and future friendships. I met Nick Badders in Oakland, who is the creator of 7000 Coliseum Way blog, I’ve met Zack Hample in Japan and in Seattle, who is the creator of The Baseball Collector and a published author of Watching Baseball Smarter, I’ve met Todd Cook, who is an avid baseball junkie like the rest of us and even scored a game-worn jersey from Ryan Rowland-Smith!
If I didn’t mention you that I’ve met and you maintain a blog, I do apologize. You know how hard it is trying to keep up with this beast. And for those that are looking forward to a meeting in the future, keep in touch! Don’t forget about me, and I won’t forget about you!
One last thing, if you do in fact have a blog, drop me a comment and let me know how many views your blog has hit so far and how long you’ve had it for. I’m trying to create new and improved ways to keep my blog interesting and gain new viewers. Reading everyone elses blogs really helps with that. Thanks!
