w00t! 11ty!

Sometime earlier today Tacky Raccoons passed 800K views! WooHoo! That’s MMMMMMMM x C in Roman Numerals, which is also indicated as:


1,292 Posts = 3rd Year Blogoversary!

Wow. Didn’t think we’d still be around this long. Mostly, we didn’t think at all, just got up did it, starting on 3 August 2007, and we’ve since passed 671,000 views!

The year certainly had its highlights. We had our busiest day, 18 October 2009, with over 20,500 hits. I was invited to post on both AmyOops and The Blogmocracy. Amy’s site is kind of a cornocopia of oddness, and The Blogmocracy is more about current events where I provide innocuous fodder for the Overnight Open Thread. It’s all a lot of fun.

We opened up The Tacky Raccoons Store for TR paraphernalia. Our new FaceBook page was hacked and deleted, but it’ll be up again soon. Thanks to all who logged in.

This post is a retrospective of our past year, listing the Top 10 greatest hits of Tacky Raccoons from August 2009 to August 2010. Previous years’ greatest hits are here and here.

So here are the Top 10 of the past twelve months, with last year’s rankings separated by an appropriate slash. NR = no rating,  indicating that the post either didn’t make rank or wasn’t posted last year. Click on the images to see the original posts.

Tacky Raccoons Greatest Hit

Brando WordPress


On 21 December 2007, the record was set for the amount of traffic in one day, with almost 15K.  That record was broken yesterday with over 20,500 hits.

Thanx to the folks who linked on Digg, Reddit, Stumbleupon, Twitter and Facebook, and thanx also to our regular visitors. Y’all made my day.
Late breaking news: WordPress is having a contest, and this post is our official entry.

[Update:  After reconsideration, we decided to delete the poll. It was pointless, as we’ll never have a “tip jar” on this site.]

[Update: Famous last words.]
