300

No, not that popular movie! Actually, according to blogger this is my 300th post. Now my year anniversary blew by just before summer and I didn’t even bat an eye. But I thought it might be interesting to take a general look at just what VE has accomplished (or not accomplished).

I know, I could have eliminated global warming, developed a burn free toaster, or directed a Captain America move that actually made it to the theatre; but I'm just not that inspirational. So let's take a quick look at just what I have done.

And what better way to do that than with an official looking pie chart. Here, I baked one just for you:

Ok, but beyond the graphs and charts, here are some truly nonsense ridden factoids:

- In Aug 2006 I posted 40 times!
- In Dec 2006 I only posted 5 times (but I have an excuse from my mom)
- My first post was a boring snippet of me talking to me in a third person! Uggh

Had you been reading me earlier you would have learned interesting snippets like the fact that even though Jefferson is on the $2 bill, you can’t use his bill in the vending machines at his home in Monticello. They only take $1 bills with Washington on them!

Have you ever” was a fun game I invented and a different way to do a meme; try it

I had 9 posts that I don’t consider original; just pastes of things interesting. That means I’m at least original 97% of the time.

Other interesting factoids:
- I only posted five Meme (and one that sort of was but was more of a game/challenge)
- I had 25 that weren’t intended to by funny. Mostly early on when I was looking for my identity but others were around sharing a trip or an interesting way to look at time or something obscure like that (the 6 Memes are part of this)
- I had 6 games that readers could participate in
- I’ve used 660 photos/diagrams but only had 4 videos in posts
- 25 posts have been about movies or music
- I only did one caption contest. It wasn’t my cup of tea; I don’t like to judge readers

Things you heard it here first or that I came up with:
- Professional vacationer
- Ebay Gambling (6/4/06)
- The Mall-Game Date idea (2/14/07)
- The Fuck you site (3/1/07)

How do you manage to compile such a vast amount of statistics? Does Blogger have a program for that?

300 posts of fantastical thought must leave you in a continuous state of bizzare observation of the world around you.STOMP.

Theresa said...

Eww, I hope you didn't write this one nude! That's a little more information than we need. ;)

Nessa said...

Can I have some pie, too?

iamnot said...

83% of all statistics are make up on the spot...I'm just sayin'.

justacoolcat said...

Too much math. Pass the pie.

VE said...

py - I compiled them myself. I'm actually scary fast at some things; I just don't admit it a lot

theresa - We all know I just make this stuff up...no need to worry about that one

nessa - Sure, but I used the lettuce crust to save on calories...

iamnot - You hit the nail on the head; although with the exception of the pie chart; all the other are exactly accurate. I actually do know how many photos/diagrams I've used; sick, huh?

justacoolcat - Yeah but it's new math; it doesn't have to be right. Just make it up and we can go get that pie!

Kurt said...

I hope I'm around for the 301st post!

MsPuddin said...

Man I would have ate a bigger chunk of that chart. math is hard.

Must be the day for statistical anniversary posts. I'm celebrating my 2-year anniversary today (and you're in it).

Congrats on the 300thhhh.

I would question the sources of your statistics but who on earth would be able to validate them?!!

VE said...

kurt - I know, it's hard to hang in there continually thinking 'Maybe he'll be funny today..."

mspuddin - I was going to but I had a big burrito for lunch...

jeff - Congrats too. I question my sources too since it's me; and he's always lying to me anyway

Uncivil said...

Congrats on your 300.
Statistics means never having to say you're certain.
and I think Mark Twain said "There are lies, damned lies, and statistics." !

Anonymous Boxer said...

I know that Mark Twain quote, but I could swear he said "pies" not "lies."

the frogster said...

Leave it to Theresa to grab on to the nude factor.

Congrats on 300. I don't know how many posts I have and I would rather poke my own eyes out with sharp sticks than try to categorize them. So obviously you are a much more attentive and interested blogger than I am, and I salute your attention to, um, attentiveness.

Serena Joy said...

Happy 300, VE! What flavor is that pie?:)

VE said...

uncivil - Statistically speaking; you should never trust comments in a blog as fact...

ab - Lies, pies; they're both bad for us and yet we still indulge

frogster - Are you saying that poking your eyes out with sharp sticks isn't fun either? Now what am I going to do with these sticks?

VE said...

sj - Some sort of berry. Probably Halle!

Shawna said...

Yah, your a total weirdo, that's why I love reading your stuff...I can only imagine what you are like in person...you used to date Suz tho, so I know you are probably pretty awesome.

What I have learned today: everybody likes pie.
