I realize that 7,000 page views isn't exactly breaking any records. Just this week, as a matter of fact, Charlie Sheen scored 3 million followers on Twitter over the course of a single day (this on the heels of his much-publicized release from CBS TV's Two & A Half Men). From that perspective, when you consider that FTWW has been up and running since February 2010, a number like 7,000 is far from impressive.
But still, to me that's a pretty big deal. Especially since – outside of my home at least – I am hardly a celebrity. It means that, somewhere out there... someone is reading. And had their interest sufficiently peaked enough to come back once, twice, maybe three times a week to check things out. That's good, because I've tried to make this blog a fun place to visit, with entries that aim to tweak your approach to movie watching (MacGuffin With Egg, Screenwriting 101), offer a unique spin on projects you'd find on other sites (Best Films of the Decade), or cover topics I haven't been able to find anywhere else (Franchise Face-Offs). My only wish is that I could hear back from you a little more often (i.e., PLEASE COMMENT!), not just to let me know you're out there but also to give me some honest feedback on those entries you like versus those that you don't. Ah, well. I guess you can't win 'em all.
Anyway, in keeping with our number theme, I though we'd celebrate with a quiz. Your job: complete the partial movie title below with its appropriate numerical value. (Example: _______ Of The Condor = Three Days Of The Condor.) Sound simple enough? Give it a try! And we'll see you back here with my Next Great Post in a bit.
