Over the past week or two the site has seen a significant uptick in traffic, which is what happens when you post content I guess.
I mean, it’s all relative. I’m not pulling in tens of thousands of readers a day or anything, and it’s only a matter of time before I offend the small amount of readers I do have, but in the meantime it’s nice to see the site’s slow/steady growth continue to bloom.
And for that I wanted to take the time to thank you all.
Thank you to everyone that has swung by and threw my semi-coherent ramblings a big ol’ like. Huge thanks to those of you that clicked the follow button (which can be found over there somewhere >>>) And an extra special thanks to those readers that swing by regularly.
You guys are giant fucking rockstars!
It may not seem like much, but to your humble narrator it means great deal. It helps sell my proclamations of being storyteller to my friends and family, which is the only thing giving my drinking a slightest hint of legitimacy.
The future looks bright.
We’ve come a long way since the time I wrote about getting busted checking out a beautiful young woman by her father. Which is still my most read and commented on post by far.
When that story was chosen to be Freshly Pressed and appeared on the front page of WordPress I lost my fragile little mind. I was not prepared for the thousands and thousands of people reading and commenting on something I had written, and in response I completely shut down and didn’t write anything here for months.
It was a very strange reaction to finally getting a little recognition.
With that in mind, I’m going to keep trying to create content to keep y’all entertained, or at the very least baffled, for a few minutes every day. Anything to help bring a little Only I Stand Here madness into the confines of your cubicle. Or toilet. Or your bed while your partner plays video games. Or while waiting for a flight at an airport bar. Or wherever it is my words find you.
Finally, the Only I Stand Here Snapchat details can be found on the right. I’m considering taking a run at creating a Facebook page for the site (Do people still use Facebook? Or do I need to hit up TikTok?), sharing any posts that tickle your fancy on your preferred social media platform is greatly appreciated and I’ll always respond to any thoughts/suggestions/queries you guys want to share in the comments. I’ll also seriously consider any and all proposals of marriage.
See you out in the wild.
