Two kind of incredible things that happened to me yesterday!


1. I got a new car! It’s a 1999 Toyota Corolla, great condition, runs like a dream. A little low to the ground, but I’ll get used to it. I got it at a low price through a guy through my church (much more trustworthy than relying on Craigslist) who is taking the old Taurus off my hands too. Everyone tells me these cars run forever if you keep them maintained. I know someone who has a Toyota Corolla that has over 400,000 miles on it.

I’d post a photo, but it was dark when I got it, and the car is a dark charcoal gray, and it’s raining. I’ll post one later today though! I’m taking the day off to go take care of things at the tag office. Yay! No more driving around doing free advertising in the company car.

2. I’m always hesitant to post stats-related info, but I told Opinionated Man about it and he told me to go ahead and brag about this so I will. On the 20th, this blog finally entered the Alexa top million website. As of today, it’s ranked at 993,830 globally and at 125,582 in the United States. I know these ranks don’t matter a whole lot until you get into the top 100K or so, but it’s still very encouraging.

    Congratulations on your new vehicle. That IS very good news! And yes, Toyotas are known for their reliability.

    What is stats-related info? And why isn’t it advisable for people to publish?

    I am finding your blog here to be like a dream for me. I’m taking it not everyone comments. Most people just read, is that so?

  4. Congratulations on everything!! My husband has a 1997 Toyota Corolla and he has 250,000 miles on it. He was once told by a mechanic that other than some minor repairs it’s practically brand new. My husband takes exceptional care of it but those kinds of cars are built to last. So glad you got one!
    And your stats are amazing. Keep up the good work.

    See what you get for bragging; LOL! (TOTALLY kidding!)

    Yeah, I picture it’s being like the stock market: Ups and downs day to day but ever higher overall.
