1,000,000

Your Mama is giddy and extremely pleased to tell all the children that today, Saturday August 4th, 2007, we have pushed beyond 1,000,000 page hits for the year to date. ONE MILLION!!! In just seven months we've had more than 1 million page hits. We are shocked, amazed, astounded and oh so thrilled.

We would like to thank all our regular readers, part time readers, and all those that came here just one time. We LOVE the cacophony of comments and the dialogue y'all carry on about the properties.

We'd also like to thank all the many, MANY other websites and blogs that link over to our little blog on a regular basis as well as all those that linked over just one time. There are too many to list in their entirety, so we'll list those at the top of our head: Curbed LA, A Socialite's Life, LAist, L.A. LAND (The LA Times blog), Luxist, Radar, Big Time Listings, Glitterati Gossip, The Rat and the Mouse, The Gilded Moose, SFist, Celebrity Cowboy, The World of Wonder, LA Observed, Breesay's Journal, Valleywag, and of course all the many celebrity fan sites and discussion groups. If we've missed you here, please let us know, we'll GLADLY add you to the list.

We'd like to thank the newspapers and publications that have mentioned, pointed to and featured our little blog in print as well as online: The New York Times, 7x7, The Telegraph, The Times UK, The New York Observer, the NY Post, and USA Today.

Let's not forget our one advertiser whose contract we appreciate immensely. May there be a few more in the future, because Your Mama has got a mortgage to pay.

Of course we'd be lost without our team of tipsters who include but are certainly not limited to our fairy godmother, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, Lucy Spillerguts, Mugsy Fairweather, the Yorkshire Bint, Tommy Tellall, and many, MANY more.

And let's not forget our bitches Linda and Beverly. Or the Dr. Cooter, from whom all good things spring forth and who makes all this possible.

And keep you're eyes peeled because we're soon going to be seen on VH1's The Fabulous Life Presents...

Here's to a couple million more!

THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. Seriously, THANK YOU.

Congratulations Mama! And sincere thanks to YOU for providing a quality site filled with so many interesting, amusing, and fun articles on real estate porn. I'm a huge fan of your wry wit and expressive skills. Please tip us off the day before that VH1 show if possible so we can be sure not to miss it, thanks :)

Mama, I can't think of a better way to be a real estate looky-loo without having to break a sweat.

I get all the dirt, smut and laughs that I could ever want every morning.

You're the best and deserve lots of advertisers paying for your mortgage!

nancypants said...

Sooo happy for you!
Since we are all real estate and home decorating/improvement junkies, maybe you could solicit Home Depot or Ethan Allen type stores to advertise.
Best always and do please let us know the date of your big VH1 premier!

Mama, I can remember the first time I found this blog like 5 months ago from a reference by luxist. I had to go back and read everything from the start. I LOVE to check in constantly. I also enjoy the many insights of your readers particularly phoenix who somehow always seems first. As the # of comments grows though some of the newbies don't get it or just don't pay attention-sigh WE LOVE YOUR SITE. Congrats

Whoops Anon @ 11:56 AM. I've been feeling a bit uncomfortable about being 1st so much and had decided to hold off in the future because I much prefer to blend actually :) I couldn't hold back from expressing my joy at Mama'a good news when I came to the site yesterday though. By the way, the secret to my early posts is I don't work; a lazy bum you might say, but still enjoy getting up early, lol.

Congratulations Mama! This site is by far my favorite guilty pleasure. And it is a pleasure. I can't decide what I like more...seeing inside these homes that in any other circumstance I would never EVER see or reading your hilarious commentary.

I agree with Anon 8:49. I think home improvement/decorating is an excellent idea for advertising. I know that, underneath all my voyeurism, is what appeals to me about these houses. I originally was looking for ideas.

Keep up the good work! You are amazing!

PS I found you through la.curbed.com.
