Target 200,000

I am pleased to confirm that this blog's 100,000th hit was registered earlier today. The iconic vital hit was registered in Stockport, Greater Manchester of all places so whoever you are, thank you (though I'm concerned that you may not be supporting your local club).

I am not resting on my laurels however (as my former headmistress used to claim), and am thus pleased to announce the launch of Target 200,000.

The site registered its 50,000th hit on 11 August 2006 so I am currently racking them up at a rate of 269 per day; not bad though admittedly not Frankie Valley-esque (894 hits per day since April 2005). The site has so far generated gross total income of £18.24 pushing forward my target retirement date by at least thirty minutes or so.

Thanks for taking the time to read the blog; it's reassuring to know that my late night scotch-soaked ramblings are not the internet equivalent of 'talking to myself.' Thanks especially to anyone who has taken the time to comment (except 'Anonymous' who cared to compare me to an important part of the female anatomy). You all need to realise that the buzz of anticipation I get when I receive a comment, might only be compared to the same feeling I get when 'Accountancy' magazine lands on my doorstep.

It's also been fun to compare notes (and occasionally meet with) fellow Addick bloggers, and whilst each has its own unique style, we are all hopefully united by our occasionally irrational love of Charlton Athletic.

Regular readers will know I am not a rose-tinted optimist, and I fear that the next 50,000 hits will arrive with an enhanced sense of desperation and sadness. However whether we're Championship bound or not, I know I won't be able to shake the writing habit because although I'm supposedly a mature grown-up these days, in truth I'm still the same excitable child that led the team out versus Wrexham in 1978.

Congratulations on your 100,000th and thanks for the help and contact on my trip in 2005 when we beat Chelsea on penalties, on the internet, in our respective bars in the Big Apple. I don't suppose they could have done it without our support!

Well done mate. Keep drinking the scotch.

Congrats nya, quality blogging. All the best with Taget 200,000. Of course, if you want to get there before we're relegated, you could publish a pictorial "research piece" on well known CAFC supporter Keeley from Bromley ;-)

Dear NYA,
£18.24 profit for an accountant?
