Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

Another week. Time flies when you’re in a time machine.


WHALL-E 3.0

You might think you need to see Wall-E this summer.

Well, you do.  But you also don’t want to MISC my very own WHALL-E-versary 3.0!  That’s right – as I mentioned last week, I’m coming up on my 3rd anniversary of blogging and my 1st anniversary of this weekly series.  The problem was, I couldn’t figure out what I should do. One of the commenters mentioned that I should give him a gift since he’s been such a loyal commenter.  That got me thinking – who has been commenting a lot? So I checked.

whall.org top commenters by june 208

I also took notice that 5 of the top commenters are “real-life” friends (Absurdist, Jennefer, Ren, Christine, Raganator).  The rest (Poppy, Avitable, Dave2, sue, sourpuss, Hilly, martymankins, and BlondeBlogger) I believe I would enjoy having as real-life friends.  I like how that works out.

Quick analysis also reveals that I have four long-term commenters and three total newbies.  That seems to be a good mix.

But then the question comes – do I care about the number of comments?  Is that what’s important?  Or is it the content?  Maybe the tone?  Are they encouraging?  Do they bring humor?  Wit?  A challenging point of view?

One thing is for certain and that is – I absolute do not care that they agree with me politically, spiritually, technologically or in any way whatsoever.  The people on my top commenters chart are diametrically opposed to me in a multitude of ways.  But fortunately for me, those differences aren’t what defines us.  It’s not what we focus on.

I’m coming up on 2500 comments some time soon.  I have a few loyal commenters.  I love writing in the blog.  I’d love more comments and more commenters.  I wanna do something, but I just don’t know what.

I recently read that it is Blog Reader Appreciation Week and how fitting that it somewhat coincide with my WHALL-e-versary 3.0?  I wanna do something but I just don’t know how.

I don’t have a budget for prizes.  But I am creative and I can carve out time here and there.  So the 13 loyal commenters can choose one of the following list as their prize.   Just email me at whall at my domain name (whall.org) and tell me which one you want!

  1. Guest post on your blog if you have one
  2. Lunch on me if you’re in town
  3. Custom poetry and art work, framed
  4. Astrology: Natal Chart & Solar Return for the year and a brief analysis
  5. One of my available Dilbert or Calvin & Hobbes comic books
  6. Five mp3’s off of Amazon.com (assuming I can get the ones you want)

Yay!  congrats, winners!

Oh, and also, the first five commenters on this post who AREN’T in the list can also win.   That way you new kids who have recently joined in the fun can also join in the prize fun.
