When gauging the success of a blog, there are only two metrics any blogger really cares about, and one of them is “world dominance.” While the risk board above isn’t completely color-coded just yet, it’s only a matter of time. First America, then Canada, then my favorite countries from across the pond, the UK, France and the Netherlands (only my favorite because they show up on this map) and finally to the far reaches of the earth, Australia and New Zealand. This has all happened in only two months. Simply amazing. I don’t really understand why Mexico and South America haven’t jumped on board yet, but screw ’em. We’ll all be laughing at them months from now when they’re trying to catch up on my award-winning Valentine’s Day blog and Lent blog. My ultimate goal is to have Antarctica show up on this map. I’ve learned from Frozen Planet that no one lives on Antarctica, but I don’t think it’s too much to ask a scientist to travel there and get the WBFF blog up on his iPhone, is it?
The other metric that bloggers like me care about is “the corporate IT blocking rate.” Over the life of this blog, I’ve heard stories about people trying to access it only to see some corporate bullshit message about denying entry to the site due to internal IT policy. Only now do I finally have proof that this has been happening (see picture below). And I couldn’t be prouder of myself. This blog prides itself on being racy, risque and not-safe-for-work, and I’m glad we’re doing a good job with that…actually, I can’t imagine what sort of content in this blog is causing IT departments to block it. Is it the threats of buying part of the Cadbury company so I can make mini-eggs year round? Is it taking a poll on what people would do if they won the Mega Millions that’s making them squirm? It’s probably the one mention of vaginal mesh implants…I knew that would come back to haunt me. Either way, I’m just proud that my “little engine that could” blog is even hitting the radar of an IT department.
Like I already said, that’s how I know I’ve made it to the Big Leagues. Keep on spreading the WBFF goodness, loyal readers, and I’ll keep making you piss yourselves with delight.
