Happy New Year

It has been a really long day today and I appreciate all of you who have showed up even if it was just for a post or two. I love the January 1st reveals because I feel like the whole world has the day off and can participate. That is what I love most about the site. I want to thank all of you for reading and commenting this past year. As I have said numerous times, this site is nothing without all of you. If not for you, it would just be me rambling to myself with a bunch of horrible grammar mistakes and no periods.

For those of you who sent me notes with your reader photos or just an e-mail I tried to respond to as many as I could and will respond soon to those who I have missed. I truly hope that 2014 is a year that is the best year that you have had in your life and that it is just a huge rolling tidal wave of fun and love and joy. All of you deserve that.

I want to send some love to some sites that regularly link to me and I hope that you will make them part of your daily reading list.

For the ultimate in blind items that stretch back almost a decade is AGC. They are amazing. Click here.

All of you know how much I love Michael K over at dlisted. He continues to have one of the best entertainment sites and is by far funnier than I could hope to be. Click here.

I love Celebitchy. They have some great writers and cover a lot more of the gossip world each day than I can ever hope to. Plus, I think they proofread. Click here.

I want to give some praise to imnotobsessed who find the time to link to me at least once a week and I appreciate it. Click here.

Finally, I would be very remiss if I didn't mention the tireless work that goes on over at the Facebook fan page for the site. I think they post even more than I do and I really appreciate all the hard work. If you have never checked it out, you should. Click here.

I also have a Facebook page but it is always full but you can click on the F over on the upper right and also follow me on Twitter at @entylawyer.

Thanks again for an amazing 2013 and I want to give you all a big bacon hug.

StewMcG said...

Thanks, Enty! Your work here is much appreciated (it definitely makes my work day go by much faster.)

And, Sugar, "Shazbot!" has been the substitute "clean" curse word in our house for years. Love it and I'm happy to see others still use it.

TalksTooMuch said...

Shazbot this was a long day!

Alice Tate said...

Happy new year everyone! I always love reveal day.

Simon said...

Long, but awesome day! Thanks, Enty for all the work you do.

East coast bed time. Do it all again tomorrow.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Sherry said...

I missed most of the reveals today because I got to meet someone awesome and spend the day with a cool lady (a friend) but I would love to travel this world and meet all (okay most) of you. First the Count as a charter member of the Jerkuladies and then One Eye Charlie so he can understand my wit and wisdom (and cuz he's cute riiiighht?) then maybe to Ireland to get IJU's secret decoder ring and TTM to get oot and aboot in Canada. Then Rach Around cuz seriously, she sounds like a blast. Oh gosh who else can I terrorize?

At any rate.. Much love and hugs to all here. I ain't the most popular girl (read "invisible") but enjoy the group. HNY all!

shopgirl said...

ktmonster said...

Flygirl said...

Thanks Enty, and Happy New Year to all! Maybe I'll be less of a creepy lurker and post more this year. Love the entertaining comments! You guys are great! :)

SnowCherries said...

Thank you, Entry, and Happy New Year to you and everyone else! My daughter spent way more time than normal watching annoying Caillou so I could read the blinds (and find an excuse not to help my hubby shovel snow). Bad mom, happy blind reveals reader :)

Kristin said...

Roman Holiday said...

Thanks for keeping me company with this crazy site, it's like opening a present everyday - you just never know what your gonna find! Peace for the New Year.

SnowCherries said...

That would be better than a lullaby. :)

M. Brown said...

Thanks Enty. I discovered CDAN on a reveal day and thought I won the jackpot. I don't comment often but I read every day and love the different personalities on here. Happy New Year everyone!

TinselSass said...

Happy 2014 and many thanks, Enty! You bring laughter and smarts to life. Very appreciated.

And Happy 2014 to the amazing CDAN Family. You are WOW!!!!!!!!!!

S.joy said...

A dream come true!

Harlow17 said...

cheers everyone! thanks enty!!

I have a few thoughts. We spent today on just July, right? (The already revealed blinds ran during a time that wasn't normally dedicated to reveal day?)

Enty has been revealing a ton of blinds during regular days. Regular readers have said there are so many they don't even read them all.

Enty has readers who only visit 2x a year.

Maybe Enty should do 1 reveal day each month. July was revealed on 1/1; reveal August on 2/1, Sept on 3/1 (or the first Saturday of the month since posting on a business day isn't feasible.)

To preserve the specialness of the January and July reveals, Enty can hype certain posts as "this will be revealed in July" or he can post a few new, original blinds at the start of the day and promise to reveal them at the end. Reader photos stay unique to Jan/July.

My thinking is to convert 2x a year visitor to 12x a year (or more) visitor and create more frequent big buzz days everywhere.

With advertising, Enty can sell year-long commitments and charge a premium for monthly reveal days and even higher premiums for Jan/July days. Plus you get into frequency pricing packages: buy 12 reveal days and earn 10% discount on everyday advertising.

Additionally, Enty can also streamline the daily workload by scaling back on the 10 reveals a day but perhaps keeping 1 or 2 if he thinks traffic or viewed times will drop without them.

Or maybe none of the above. Shrug. I'm kinda glad to be going back to work tomorrow. I obviously need a hobby if I'm offering unsolicited advice to an anonymous blogger.

Regardless, Happy New Year everyone! Thanks, Enty!

Himmmm said...

Thanks Enty! Keep up the good work big fella!

@Sugar: A big SHAZBOT back to you (and a na-nu-na-nu for the road!).

I (and the "royal we") truly enjoy this insane, dysfunctional, and funny family here. Great to see/read everyone again and wishing you all love, health, and prosperity this coming year.
Stay sane and sleep well!!

Happy New Year to you Enty and to all of the seemingly wonderful readers on this site...

Primadiva said...

I love this site, mainly for the commenters and the rare real enty appearance. Happy 2014

I used to hang out on AGC...

Bunni said...

Happy New Year Enty & lovely readers! This is my favorite site by far for getting my daily fix on all things gossip.

I was surprised there were no mentions of D. Wade & Ludicris having outside kids. I thought I read some things alluding to that here. I haven't finished reading all today's reveals yet, perhaps I'm wrong.

Stepforded said...

Forgot to say - Happy New Year to the wider CDAN community ... sometimes I just jump straight to the comments and have a giggle at all the wit and humour passed through these pages.

Sweet dreams and let's toast to a fantastic 2014 for all!

AndyCane said...

Happy New Years ya crazy people

Alita said...

Whoa, whoa, Sherry you are so far from invisible, girl! You're lovely and cool and funny!

One of the cool things about CDaN to me, is that there are folk from places so far-flung around the world that I'd bet you could do a 365 tour on couches (albeit questionable couches at times ;) and cover every continent except maybe Antarctica... unless we have an Antarctic resident here? Anyone? Bueller?

Murielle said...

Thank you for everything. This is my one month anniversary as a CDAN reader. Lovely place to read and have a bit of fun.
Happy New Year to you.

Maggie said...

Thanks enty and hope everyone has a safe and happy new year. Until tom ggoodnight.

Rach Around said...

Awwwww Sherry, after a shitty festive period, you made me smile (without using a fart joke!) I loves you!! Xx

@Sherry, fwiw, I think you're the bee's knees. Happy New Year!

Its just U said...

Thanks everyone for making a shitty year fun. I've been coming here for a few years now and for various reasons this has been the best so far. I've made some real friends here and for that I'm truly grateful.
@Sherry love, you are welcome round my gaff for a cuppa anytime. The kettle's always warm. I'd love to hang out with Rach too. She's a mad yoke. :-D
Thanks again Enty. Much appreciated.

Sleven™ said...

The fact that there is no 6AM (PST) posting should, I think, be put on IJU and Sherry. They are horrible people who can only redeem themselves by paying for my airfare to their destinations.

Its just U said...

Sleven, didn't you get my Christmas present? Bummer. You missed the flight. :-D

Thank you, and may you all CDANers have a happy and profitable 2014.


This is perhaps the first and only time I apologize in advance for my grammar and spelling in the post, but here I am.

PugsterMom said...

Happy New Year to all of you! Reveal Day is my favorite! Many thanks Enty for all the fun. (I wrote a note with my pic but didn't get an autographed photo... I mean a personal note... back!!!!!)
