I’ve Already Done That

I’ve been doing this blog for three years now and I’m constantly looking out for new things to write about. An idea for a topic will pop into my head, I’ll jot down a note or two to remember it, and I’ll let the idea germinate in the back of my mind until I have time to type it out. But I’m at the point now that I have to search Critically Rated first to see if I’ve already written about something. And a lot of the times I’ll realize that I’ve already done that, then I have to find something new to write about. That’s ok though, it helps keep me motivated to find something else to write about. That’s how this post was created. I wanted to write about battling for the armrest. I had it all figured out. Too bad I already wrote about fighting for the armrest in 2012. I needed a new topic. So I wrote about how I’ve already done that. And now you’ve read it. My work here is done… for now.

Three Years

Three years is a long time. That’s most of high school. It’s nothing to scoff at. Today is the three-year anniversary of CriticallyRated.com. I’ve been blogging for three years now. That’s a lot of movies, television shows, books, and random rants to write about and judge. And I’m still going strong. The world gives me a million things to write about everyday. I only write about one or two. There are still billions of more things for me to experience, write about, criticize, and rate. The world is my oyster. This blog is my pearl. It’s where all the things I deal about day to day can be organized, sorted, and categorized. A lot of things in my life have changed over the past three years. I’m glad that CriticallyRated.com is still something that we can all depend on. Thanks for reading, thanks for sharing, and thanks for being so awesome. You’re all beautiful people and I really like your shirt. It matches your eyes.

400 Views

CriticallyRated.com reached a milestone today. We hit 400 daily views for the first time in our 2+ year history. That doesn’t sound too impressive, but you have to consider the fact that we don’t advertise and rely solely on word of mouth to generate traffic. We’ve slowly gathered a cult following thanks to our many readers, especially the ones who take the time to share a link. CriticallyRated.com has been a passion project for me, and it’s become one of the most rewarding things that I’ve done in life. I’ve done things that I never thought I would experience just so that I could Critically Rate it. I never claimed to be an expert on anything, nor do I want to be. I just want to voice my opinion and have other people relate to it. And people have. So I thank you, thank you, and thank you again. I’m easy to please. I’m happy to get a text message from a friend, so I’m beyond honored and shocked when hundreds of people take the time to read some bullshit that I wrote. Thank you for checking it out and thank you for coming back. Even though I run it, it’s our blog.

Fifteen Hundred

Fifteen hundred is kind of a lot. I should know. This is my fifteenth hundred post on Critically Rated. It took me two years and one day to write this many posts. I’m not looking for a medal or a cookie or anything. I just want a little acknowledgment and I have no problems with patting myself on the back if nobody else will. Fifteen hundred posts. Let that sink in for a minute. One thousand, five hundred posts. That’s a lot of shit that I’ve judged on a scale of 1-17. I didn’t know that there were really that many things to write about. I never planned on writing this much, but it’s not a herculean task if you just take it one word at a time.

I first started blogging as a way to catalog my life experiences. I wanted to know which beers I’ve consumed, what movies I’ve watched, I wanted to remember life’s little situations and landmark moments. And I feel like this site lets me do that. I like writing for this site more than you enjoy reading it. But you, the reader, are the most important contributor to this site. Nothing is worth writing about if there’s nobody there to read it. And not only do you read my stuff, you sometimes share it with your friends, and that’s far more rewarding than you will ever know. Thank you for visiting my site. Thank you for taking the time to read my bullshit. And if I wrote something about you, thank you for the inspiration. Fifteen hundred posts was easy… let’s see if we can do fifteen hundred more.

A Thousand Posts

So what does a thousand posts look like? A lot like this. This is my first outing into quadruple digits. I hope it’s as impressive for you as it is for me. I don’t know what a thousand posts means. I know I’m committed, I know that I write a lot, but a thousand posts is a milestone. Consider yourself fortunate to be a part of it. I know I do. I’m not sure what to write about, but I have no problem with patting myself on the back (because nobody else will). I started this site with the simple goal of posting a minimum of two articles a day. I’ve met that quota and then some. I never thought I would reach a thousand posts, and I didn’t even know there were that many things to write about. Working on this site has opened my eyes. Every day provides a new situation, another observation, and another unnecessary product that needs to be rated and judged. Cheers to a thousand posts and cheers to a thousand more. Thanks for visiting CriticallyRated.com.

Five Hundred

Five hundred is a pretty decent number. It is halfway to a thousand. That’s what this is. It’s the landmark 500th post on Critically Rated. Before this, I didn’t know that there were 500 things worth Critically Rating. Now I don’t know if I can stop judging the world. Five hundred posts is kind of a milestone. And you’re reading this too, so you are a part of history now. Congratulations. We did it.
