Year One

I can’t believe it, but one year ago I started this little blog.  After publishing 354 posts (this is 355) I thought I’d share some of the fun things I’ve learned along the way.

First, I never thought I’d post a picture of myself online that looked like this:


Or that I’d admit that G and I eat entire cakes:


But I think I learned the most about my wonderful readers.  First, I’m a little concerned that you might like G more than I do…maybe I’ll hold an auction for him during my second year of blogging.  I’m also a little concerned that some of you have found my blog by searching some interesting topics on the internet.

I’m not surprised by these:

  • mean girls christmas card
  • trophy wife naked
  • never washed hair
  • desserts for four people
  • leave marriage for twenty years to become trophy wife

What surprises me almost daily, though, is seeing that people find CTW by entering different variations of this:



I am not joking.  I went through my stats and I’ve had over 550 views that came from people entering those search terms (or similar ones) into search engines.  I only counted searches regarding black people and fried chicken or watermelon.  There were multiple searches for black people eating cake or just plain eating as well.  WTF?!

I only did one post where G ate fried chicken and watermelon.



I had no idea that people searched those terms (and would click on a blog link) almost every day.  Wow, just wow.

I also discovered (after doing a guest post) that people think I’m inappropriate and/or offensive.  For the record, I’ve also been told I have no class or decency…in real life, not in the blog world.  I actual love stuff like that, thank you.

Honestly, I didn’t think I would last this long in the blogging world or that I would enjoy it as much as I do.  So thank you, loyal readers, for taking the time to read and comment.  I really do appreciate it, even if you found me by searching for “black man eating watermelon pic”…I hope you found what you were looking for.

    From your loyal Jewish reader: “Mazel tov” on your one year. In English that means “congratulations”. I’m so proud to have know you way back when; back in the day when we skipped con law to see 8-mile. We took our education so seriously. :-). Miss you and G

    I sometimes wonder what my life was like a year ago before I sat at my desk 2390 hours a day and stalked you. It was pretty sad, but I think it’s even sadder now.

  10. TOO FUNNY. Love you and G together. Oh, and me and the bf are also guilty of downing an entire cake. Glad it’s not just us. Happy blog-iversary!
