This is the 2,000th post on Tacky Raccoons.
Just think of all the time I could have been doing something more productive than shirking my responsibilites. On the other hand, this blog has given me much enjoyment over the years because every post was the result of a trek, an internet safari to look for and post oddities that amuse me, or at least hold my attention for more than a few seconds.
It has had it’s benefits. I’ve learned about image manipulation and editing, .gif animations, and that there are some sites out there that no one should visit. I’ve also “met” people from all over the world.
One thing that’s always puzzled me is what generates traffic. Sure, putting up a post titled “Lesbian Amputee Dwarf Porn” got a lot of hits (it’s No. 15 on the list of most popular) but those who are really looking for it won’t find it here. With very few exceptions, I’m still running on Anita Bath’s blogging Rule No. 1: Don’t post anything that will cause a Pastor to block the site from viewing by his 12 year-old daughter.
In case you’re curious, here are the Top Five posts that garnered the most attention since we started in 2007:
Are those the best posts of Tacky Raccoons? Not in my opinion, but who cares. I’m having fun, and I hope you are, too.
A short while ago our 1,200,000th visitor showed up and quietly LOL’d to him/herself. Whoever/whatever it was came from somewhere here.
I’ve said it before (at least I think I did) that Tacky Raccoons has a pulse. The hits drop off on the weekends, yet they perk up again on Mondays, with Tuesdays and Wednesdays generating the most traffic. The good news is that the spike difference amounts to only about 3%, and I think that’s a good thing.
After several years of farting around and posting inanities on a daily basis, we are proud to announce 1,000,000 views as of a few hours ago. Although most of our traffic is from the U.S, the U.K. and Australia, we’ve been honored with visitors from 170 countries, including some that I’ve never heard of. From Revolver Maps, we get this nice list:
