It’s been a good couple of days off from posting and it’s great to be back. I was starting to get a little concerned about the number of visits per day and that makes no sense at all as I do not have ANY paid advertising on the blog. Nor will I. I do this for fun only. ODDMAN is currently averaging ~7,500 visits per day and has been for several months, so I have absolutely no complaints at all about numbers.  So it’s back to having fun only and I’ll ignore the stats counters for a bit. I’d still post if I was only getting 40 visits and 3 goofballs per day. I do this for fun. So on with the ODD. Have a great day.

    Just had to say thank you for what you do. I start every morning with the news and Oddman. Every FRIGGIN’ morning!

    Every day Im done with work, I come straight here. Big ups for holding off the paid ads (but you shouldn’t).

      Most of the ad agencies that have inquired about advertising on ODDMAN have wanted some changes made to the format or the content and/or who I could not skewer. It wouldn’t have been me. It’s hard to skewer a company when they’re paying to advertise on your blog. For some reason they tend to get a bit upset at that. I don’t have to have advertising dollars coming in so I don’t. It’s just for fun. 🙂

    Hi David,

    Welcome back. Just to let you know that I check oddman every day, still love every post you do and always like it on stumble upon.

    The reason you get so many daily visitors is that you produce a really quality blog with great content day in day out.

    Hope you had a good rest, and that if ever you need some more rest we’ll all miss you but completely understand that this must be a difficult and time consuming thing to make every day. We’ll all be here waiting for when you get back.

    Loadsa Love

    Lee :o)

      Thanks for the kind words, Lee. They do mean a lot. As with all things, sometimes you just need a small break from the things you enjoy doing so that you can continue to enjoy doing them. I do not ever want this to become a chore/job.

      Also, it is evident that i am not recovering as fast as I hoped to from my rotator cuff surgery last January and it has become a bone of frustration with myself. As I’ve been told several times, I’m not 24, I do not have a team of sports specialists looking after me and even if I had all that, it would take at least a year. I’m not 24, I don’t have the sports specialists, though I have a great physiotherapist and kenesiologist, and 7 or 8 months is not a long enough rehab time. There is noticable progress every 3 weeks or so, but it’ll just take time. Like all males though, I want it to be finished NOW. LMAO. Can’t rush Mother Nature.

    I love this blog. I check in with the odd every day and have gone thru all the archives.
    Thanks for that!

    Welcome back Big D thanks for e-mail, I know firsthand what happens when a hobbie overwhelms ya. That trip off island was a big recharge I needed, even when you live in a paradise you need to get away sometimes if anything just to remember how good you’ve got it. Keep up the good work, we’ll be here for ya, stay odd my friends.
