A Thankful Countdown: Day 8

Originally published at Big Ugly Man Doll. You can comment here or there.

I’ve decided to count down to Thinksgiving, and take a moment each day to think about things I’m thankful for. 

Number Eight:  People who click on the ads on the blog.

I really, really appreciate it.  Both of you who’ve taken a moment and clicked the stupid ad, and let the ad page load all the way.  I know you’re not interested in whatever’s being advertised, and no one expects anyone to actually buy anything from one of those ads, but the difference between “looking at” the ad and “clicking on” the ad, is, as they say, the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.   This blog has brought me hours of joy, a place to rant and an audience with whom to do so, and about sixty seven cents. 

So thank you for clicking.  Both of you. 

The rest of you, if you’ve got a minute or two before your next meeting – think about clicking the ad.  I know it’s dumb.  But next year, I’ll be thanking YOU in this space!
