Gimparoo!

Hello New Visitors

Posted in Uncategorized by Scott on February 13, 2007

Holy moly. I checked my blog stats on a whim, and for a minute, I thought maybe I had somehow logged in as someone else. Right now I’m sitting at 1,801 hits, and at this rate, it looks like we’ll hit 2,000 before the day is done. (My previous high was 39. As in, less than 40.) I believe I have Ubuntu Blog and Planet Ubuntu to thank, so, thanks!

I hope you are all finding something useful. Keep in mind I just started this blog recently, so after a while there will be a lot more material. I would love it if you would recommend some tutorials you’d like to see adapted. It’s helpful to know what people are looking for. Before today, my most popular posts were the ones regarding Web 2.0, but now it seems most are checking the Lomography adaptation out.

I seriously almost cried when I opened up google reader and saw my blogs’ name right up on top. I even took a screenshot.

Thanks again for visiting. I hope you’ll stick around. I should have some new content for you very soon!

Update: Just cracked 2,000 visitors. Thanks everyone, you’re seriously making my day.

    Very cool indeed!!

    1,000 thankyou’s for this blog! Please keep it up.

    BTW, may I just play ‘spelling Nazi’ for a moment? The category should be ‘navel gazing’ – ‘naval’ means ‘of the navy’. Sorry, can’t help correcting :)

    Tom, your wish shall be granted, provided it can be done in the GIMP. I shall research this subject and make a post soon.

    Peter… how embarrassing. Thank you for pointing that out. I shall correct it immediately.

    Super idea. It’s no wonder you’re seeing a lot of hits. Good ideas tend to do that – or so I’m told ;)

    Pretty soon others will link to you too. Even I did. There – you can have my 3 regular subscribers – no charge. ;)

    Good job.

    This is just the kind of thing I’m looking for. I’ve seen buttloads of tutorials for Photoshop, but like half of them don’t work with Gimp. Keep up the good work!

    By the way, I bet a load of visitors came from Digg. You’ve been dugg.

    Great stuff man! I’ve been struggling a lot on really using GIMP to it’s full potential. Now I have this resource. Thanks! Keep up the good work. :)

    Read you up on ubuntu planet.

    Now you are getting some well-deserved attention :)

    Keep writing great tutorials and we’ll all stick around!
