Jeez, that happened a lot faster than I thought!!! Sometime earlier today, we hit the magic TWO MILLION MARK. Two million unique visitors have come to GayPatriot.org since we launched on September 4, 2004.
What a great day. Many, many, many thanks to my blogger-in-crime Dan (GayPatriotWest) who put us over the top with his GOP Convention coverage two weeks ago. Looks like many of our new readers are here to stay!!
Also many thanks to our revolving co-bloggers: AverageGayJoe, Vera Charles & ColoradoPatriot (though, where the hell IS he lately?).
As Dan pointed out a few days ago, we have a lot of support from the right-center blogosphere. Our very first link from another blog was the incomparable VodkaPundit. Thanks Steve!
And while I don’t have the time to link to all of these folks — our most consistent and vocal supporters of GayPatriot over the past four years include: Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit, the awesome guys & gals at The National Review/The Corner, the guys at Powerline, Michelle Malkin, Jim at Gateway Pundit, Poli & AJ at Polipundit, and Roger L. Simon and the entire Pajamas Media blogging gang! Please thank them when you see them.
And my most sincere and heartfelt thanks to our loyal readers & commenters. To hell with Andrew Sullivan, folks. WE are the voice of the American Gay Conservative. He’s now just a regular-old lefty gay wacko. A dime a dozen.
Now, our Sitemeter count is going up faster than I can keep track of. So here is the screen capture at 2PM Eastern time.
As to the Two Million Contest, I will declare a winner later this week. I need to make absolutely sure I checked all of the email entries and see who came the closest.
THANK YOU EVERYBODY. I never thought we’d make TWO MILLION!!!!!
