It doesn't seem possible, but while no one was looking, our beloved TV blog, The Flaming Nose, has just experienced its one year anniversary. In honor of this extraordinary event, I have prepared a list of stats and fun facts about The Flaming Nose. I'm also posting an excellent video clip of our revered muse, Lucille Ball, as she talks about her (and our) favorite Lucy episode with Merv Griffin. What could be a more fitting tribute to mark one year of fantastic television commentary?
Here are some interesting Nose factoids:
- After one year of existance, the Nose has received 25,039 visits from people around the world. How fitting that the Nose passed its 25k visitor mark on its birthday!
- Today alone, the Nose had visitors from such exotic locations as Istanbul, Seoul Korea, Barcelona Spain, Quezon, Philippines, and Leopoldov Slovakia.
- There have been 432 individual posts over the past year...433 if you count this one.
- The most prolific poster has been Lisa, our Queen and Fearless Leader who has made approximately 220 of those posts, or a little better than half our total volume.
- The busiest months (traffic-wise) over the past year were June and July 2008, no doubt from all the frenzied American Idol posts and links.
- The Flaming Nose has been featured or linked with such illustrious media entities as the Showtime Website, various American Idol blogs and Ceasar Milan's Dog Whisperer website.
- The Flaming Nose has its own MySpace page
Happy 1st Birthday to The Flaming Nose. May there be many, many more.
