I went to bed last night at 1:00 AM, well after the Electoral vote count was called for Obama (yay) and with a slim Popular vote count for Obama (keep it up), and well after making sure that the worst of the worst Florida amendment ballots had crashed and burned to defeat. And so this morning I know I got a lot of things to write about.
I want to start off by thanking the people who stopped off to view the blog during these final months of the election. Especially everyone who came by looking for the blog entry reviewing the Florida 2012 amendment ballots. The pageviews for that got into 1,000+ hits within the month, becoming the second-most viewed entry on this blog.
It's a bit amazing what I get from the page count stats on this blog. It's showing me what search terms were used, showing me where the searches are coming from (Japan? The second-most views are from Japan? ...I mean, I'm thrilled I'm getting readers that far overseas... But now I feel the need to send a gift basket or something to the local consulate...). It's been a thrill watching the daily pageview counts go from 7 per day to 100 to 200.
It's a pity I can't get more of you to post a comment though. Is it really that hard to use one of the account options that Blogger allows? I'm seeing it allowing Yahoo Open ID, Google, I think Facebook logins... Do me a favor, someone. Let me know what you're seeing for Login options for Comments, I will read your Anonymous submission and post it as long as it's clean and on-topic.
My next posts are going to be covering observations about how the 2012 Election went last night (messier than it ought to be: forget voter fraud, the TRUE scandal of voting is how effed up is this system), and a deeper comment about the Florida Amendment votes and what it should mean for Rick "Ass Kicked" Scott.
Big smiles, Obama people. Big smiles!
