Crossing the 50-views mark in a single day for the first time ever

May 14, 2020, is quite far one of the best days in the history of my blog.  I didn’t write a blog post on that day, but sometimes you don’t have to write a blog post in order to get a huge number of views on it on any given day.  For the first time ever, on that day, my blog crossed the 50-views mark in a single day.  Now, typically, I would get maybe somewhere between 30 and 50 views in a single week, but I never would have thought that I would get at least 50 views in one day.  Now, obviously, my blog set a new one-day record whenever it crossed the 50-views mark in a single day … and, on that day, it was seen 65 times in a single day.  The previous one-day record is 46 views, which was reached on The Fourth of July in 2019.

Now, I have had a blog for nearly six years now … and it had never crossed the 50-views mark in a single day before … until May 14, 2020.  That date will forever be one of the best dates ever in my blog’s history.  That one-day record will likely remain intact for quite some time.  So, with that in mind, thank you for allowing my blog to cross the 50-views mark in a single day back on May 14, 2020.  I will never forget that moment.

8,000 Views And Counting

On May 14, 2020, my blog reached another milestone.  You might say it reached the milestone in a very big way.  My blog got a big boost on that day … and, as of today, my blog has been seen 8,058 times by various people.  The number could rise even more whenever you read this blog post.

Thank you for helping my blog reach the 8,000-views mark.  You guys are all fantastic.

My blog set a new one-day record on that same day.  It was seen 65 times by various people in a single day.  I will talk about the event in a blog post next time.

Guess what my blog has done every month for the past 18 months?

I have written blog posts in 67 months of my life … and, in nearly half of those months, my blog has crossed the 100-views mark.  Now, whenever my blog crossed the 100-views mark for February 2020, I checked out my blog’s statistics … and I noticed that February 2020 was the 18th straight month that my blog crossed the 100-views mark.  I think that’s a rather interesting fact.  August 2018 was the last time that my blog was not able to cross the 100-views mark.  It had 94 views in that month … and, since then, my blog has been able to cross the 100-views mark in every single month.

I would like to thank you all for allowing my blog to cross the 100-views mark for 18 consecutive months.  You are all fantastic!

7,500 Views And Counting

On the afternoon of February 2, 2020, just hours after I started using my computer again, I noticed that my blog hit the 7,500-views mark on the nose.  I would like to say thank you for allowing my blog to reach this milestone.  Before you know it, it will hit the 10,000-views mark, but that won’t happen for quite some time.  It may happen either at the end of this year or at the beginning of next year.

My Blog Was Seen 2,000 Times In 2019!

On November 23, 2019, my blog crossed the 2,000-views mark for the year 2019.  The year also marked the first year that my blog has reached the 2,000-views mark in a single year.  You guys are fantastic … and I would like to thank you all for allowing my blog to reach this milestone.

You guys are in for a pre-Thanksgiving treat.  You guys will get not one, but two blog posts today.  You will be able to see another one of my posts at around 3:00 this afternoon.

I will be undergoing a dental procedure this Tuesday … and I will give my computer a break from 7:00 this evening until either 1:45 on Wednesday afternoon or 5:00 on Thursday morning.  I will see how I’m feeling then.  Enjoy your day!

7,000 Views And Counting

On November 11, 2019, my blog reached another milestone.  It is the first of two milestones that my blog will reach this month.  Yesterday afternoon, my blog crossed the 7,000-views mark overall.  It missed it by one yesterday morning, when it had 6,999 views.  It surpassed it by one yesterday afternoon, when it had 7,001 views.  Thank you all for allowing my blog to hit the 7,000-views mark overall … and, later this month, it will cross the 2,000-views mark in 2019.  This will be the first year in which my blog has been seen 2,000 times or more by various people in a single year.  I will write a blog post about the event when that does occur.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For November 2019

The month of November is almost here … and, in just over two months, the year 2019 will end … and the year 2020 will begin.  Well, today, I’d like to tell you about the posts that I’ll be writing down in November 2019.  Now, in November, two important milestones will occur … and I will talk about them in two of my blog posts as soon as they happen.  My blog will hit the 7,000-views mark next month … and, as soon as it happens, I will write a blog post entitled “7,000 Views And Counting.”  Now, my blog may reach the 2,000-views mark in 2019 … and it could happen as early as November.  Whenever that happens, I will write a blog post entitled “My Blog Was Seen 2,000 Times In 2019!”

Let me tell you about some of the other blog posts that I’ll be writing down in November of 2019.  One of my blog posts will be entitled “I have owned a classy leather jacket for two years!”  I will talk about my black leather jacket, which is from Vintage Leather.  I bought it on kohls.com nearly two years ago.  The jacket is cool, casual and classy.

I will write my 1,250th blog post in November.  It could be about a person, a place or a thing.  You can start making your guesses while you read the post that I’m writing down today.  I plan on writing my 1,250th blog post on or around Thanksgiving.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “‘Mr. Classy’ and his ‘stand-in’ now have extra class!”  As you know, “Mr. Classy” and his “stand-in” both have the grey Michael Kors jacket, but they may soon have the light wash denim jackets, which are from Brooklyn Cloth Company.  The jackets will give them both extra class in the future.  If we are unable to have matching denim jackets on or around Thanksgiving, I will write a back-up blog post instead.

I will also use my blog’s features in November.  The topics that I have for you guys this time may amaze you.  Let me tell you how I’ll be using them this time.

Joseph’s Flashback-Joseph is staying at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort in Orlando!
Joseph Has A Question For You-Which one of these four items look the classiest on “Mr. Classy?”
Joseph’s Moment Of Peace-Joseph’s West Virginia Public Broadcasting App
Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post-Joseph’s Nike Air Jacket

I hope you will check out at least one of my blog posts in November.  They may look interesting to you.

Now, I will also get some dental work done at the end of November, so it may affect my blogging schedule a little bit by then.  Thank you in advance for your understanding in this manner.

I have 180 followers on my blog … and I would like to thank them for following my blog regularly.  Some of them do it here on WordPress.com … and some of them do it via e-mail.  I don’t have time to thank all of my blog’s followers today, so I will do my best to thank them in several of my blog posts throughout my blog’s sixth year.

All in all, I would like to say thank you for allowing me to give you some fantastic blog posts over the past five years.  You have been able to help me let it grow gracefully from a simple blog to a very classy blog.  I have talked about some very interesting things in my posts … and my mission is to keep the people who check out my blog regularly both informed and entertained.  I will continue to do just that in the future.

Joseph’s 1,000th Blog Post

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you chances to revisit some of my past blog posts … and, during the month of July, I will give you chances to revisit some of my blog posts from my blog’s fifth year. Today, I will let you revisit my 1,000th blog post, which is from November of 2018.

On November 15, 2018, I wrote my 1,000th blog post here on my blog … and, during most of the first half of November of 2018, I was going down the road to my 1,000th blog post by showing you guys some of the milestones that I have reached on my blog throughout its history. I will include those blog posts as well.

Well, anyway, let me tell you about my 1,000th blog post, which was about my friend, Justin McKean. It wasn’t easy for me to choose a topic for the big blog post, considering that I had to think about topics that may be interesting for a blog post like this one. I just wanted to dedicate this blog post to Justin McKean, who has been a friend for me for 12 years now. He’s one of the classiest friends I have ever known. Again, I would like to thank Justin for allowing me to make him the subject of my 1,000th blog post.

I will also include the blog posts that went to the end of my “road” to my 1,000th blog post back in November.

As you can see here, half of November 2018 was dedicated to my 1,000th blog post.  Next time, I will give you another chance to revisit another blog post from my blog’s fifth year and it will be from December of 2018.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around July 9th in previous years …

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

Well, ladies and gentlemen, this is it.  Today is a big day for me and for my blog.  I am writing my 1,000th blog post on my blog … and, as I’ve been saying for weeks now, it could be about a person, a place or a thing.  Well, after giving this a lot of thought. I’ve decided that my 1,000th blog post will be about a person.

FB_IMG_1542273586651 This is Joseph’s 1,000th blog post. He has this sign to prove it.

My 1,000th blog post will be about a classy friend of mine … and this friend is cool, casual and classy in many ways.  The person’s name is Justin McKean.  I first became friends with him while I was at South Fayette High School back on January 23, 2007.  He was one of the three substitute teachers that I had while I was at the school back then.  For…
