Milestones and Sissy Caption - Always There

I know you all must get tired of hearing me talk about the success of this blog, but I just can't keep it to myself.   I just passed a thousand posts, so I think a little reflection is warranted.  It's hard to believe that this blog is less than two and a half years old.  It doesn't seem like that long ago that I was wrestling with the decision about whether or not I should start a new blog or continue with the Omar Bell Universe.  I think I made the right decision - an all encompassing blog represents a much better opportunity for much more varied captions. 

Back then, I was happy getting 25 thousand pageviews in a month.  Now, there are individual days when that happens.  And last month,  we had almost half a million.  I never would have hoped for such a successful blog, much less expected it. 

So those are the numbers; they're all well and good.  But the real growth has been in my work.  My writing has stayed pretty much the same (with a few milestones, like deciding to do "all dialogue" captions).  But the quality of the photo modifications has increased dramatically.  I'm quite proud of that because I'm completely self- taught, and I've only been doing modifications for about three years. 

I hope the next thousand posts garner at least as much success.  I know I'll continue posting as long as you all keep reading!  Thanks for making this blog what it is!

So here's today's caption (probably one of my favorites of the past month or so):


  1. I think this is one of your most flawless manips. It's almost TOO perfect.

    1. Thanks. I was really pleased with how it turned out.
