When it happened I fell back in disbelief. Pint’s Good Day is no longer the most liked post on the blog. I was stunned. For himself, Pint looked at me with a look I know too well. I got him a beer, he drank it and then curled up in his space at the end of the bar and went to sleep. He definitely took it in stride. Me on the other hand had kind of this joyful but sad moment because there is a new most liked post which hasn’t happened since March of 2013. That will stand as a record for a while as Pint’s post held the number one spot from March 2013 to September of 2014. That’s 18 months. The new Champion is Rabyd Writer – Feeling Nostalgic. It also is now so far ahead of all the rest it might just hold onto that spot for as long as Pint. It would have to stay there till March of 2016 so if my blog continues to grow like it has been this month, it might not last that long.
All of this havoc of course was caused by The Opinionated Man and him strolling down memory lane to thank me for being his first follower. I have to say September 25 set a lot of new records for me. I picked up over twenty followers that day where the previous record had been nine, saw a single post get over thirty likes in a single day and unseat Pint and I had more comments than I have had in a while. It was a very busy day but I was happy about it. It was a good shot in the arm. Well, without further fanfare:

There is really nothing new here compared to past months as far as what dominates my blog. My various series on nudity get a lot of play. The only real new post was Feeling Nostalgic and it pretty much accomplished the seventh spot in two days. It still was not enough to overcome the steady drum of hits that the others get every day.
If there has been one other interesting phenomena this month it is how much private thank you messages I get. I put up my e-mail in a more prominent place and some people have used it to thank me for my work as it helped them get through there struggles being nudists or more recently as they have struggled with sex addiction to their spouses sex addiction. Some marvel that my old posts are still up as a lot of blogs try to recycle stuff. I don’t do that because to me archives on a blog are good places to start if you really want to know how a blogger got to where he is. It also saves a lot of time rewriting. For those of you who have thanked me for my help, you are welcome. I have simply tried to be as honest as I can in presenting what the Bible actually says about the issues and how it could be looked at in different ways.
The only other milestone of significance is that two days ago we passed 60,000 hits. I remember when I first started out and the counter would move along slowly. One hundred hits in five days was good. Now I get that plus everyday and it is something to see sometimes. Everyday is good solid traffic and for that I am thankful.
Blessings and Cheers!!!
