Post #25,000

I thought about just ignoring when I hit post number 25,000, but then what swayed me against that was I didn't want post 25,000 to end up being about Lindsay Lohan or Kim Kardashian or something like that, and then later regret it so I just thought I would at least have it marked so I would know when I reached the number, in case I ever get to 50,000. I remember 1,000 and 5,000 clearly. The other milestones I have to go back and look for. I do remember post one. I remember reading a blog that day and I want to say it was Cory Kennedy's blog. I thought this blog thing sounded kind of interesting and it was free and I really didn't have much going on in that hour at work so wrote a little something and posted it. I then kept checking back to see if anyone read it, and no one did. At the same time though, it didn't really matter that no one had read it, I still enjoyed doing it and the next day I did another and then another and then suddenly there were people reading it. I remember the day the MV blind came out and ONTD linked to it. I thought about shutting the whole thing down right then. It was just too many people. But, there I was, the next day, doing it all over again. It has been that way for close to 7 years now. The blog is only still going because of all of you. You read it and you comment. You have made friendships and you are the best part of the site. Without all of you, it would just be me, typing random thoughts into the universe like that first day. Without all of you participating, I don't know if I would have kept it going for 25,000 posts. Thanks to everyone who has been around since the beginning and for those of you who have been here a week and decided to come back.

I have made some great virtual friends through CDAN. Love to Rocket Queen, Em, Jax (one day I hope to get into the inner sanctum of her Facebook)Mookshi, I even like B. Profane. Plus so many others,and others not so much. But we all have a right to post our thoughts and opinions.

I love to read all of your comments, and without you guys Mayor Timebob would never exist.

Smooches to you all!!

Thank you Enty, for allowing me to come to a place where I can forget and tune out the world for a bit. Making all of the bad things in the news go away for even just a couple a minutes a day.

annie cat said...

Just wanted to say thanks Enty and to all of the lovely commenters on this site. I have been a reader since the beginning but too lazy to log in to comment. Logging in today to say THANK YOU!

There should be BACON! Bacon for all!! Congrats Enty! You have helped me through a job from hell and much injury and sickness. I will always be thankful to you for giving me something to snark on when doctors have had me drugged out of my mind. Better to snark here! I also have learned much snark from all your posters and used it wisely on those who are most deserving.

Hate to say but post 25,000 should have been Chicago Baconfest. There is still time for a 25,000 celebration post that would be appropriate! Congratulations!!

Woodsy_gal said...

I have been reading since week two - and yours is really the only entertainment blog I still read. You started this at right around the time I started my job that I have now - it's been a great 7 years on both counts :)

Roman Holiday said...

Congratulations!!!! Going back to lurker mode!

EpicBlonde said...

I love this blog. I have been reading for probably 5 years and just recently started commenting a little. In the last year or so it has become something I just have read EVERY DAY for my CDAN fix or I just don't feel right. I must admit the comments are probably the best part, I have learned so many interesting things!
Long live ENTY!

kris said...

CONGRATS Enty!!! I love you as much as I did all those years ago!!!

B626 said...

I like your long story blinds about you and the biz in the old days(90's?)!

Cheers! 25,000 more, forever!

Ms Cool said...

Congrats! I'm a long-time reader and peripheral poster (CDAN Wallflower). I rarely miss a day.

discoflux said...

Great! Does this mean you have enough backing for a radio show now?!

msgirl said...

Oh shit, you mean I've been reading CDAN for almost 7 years? Freaking me out that it's been that long!

Thank you all for making CDAN my morning addiction, altho I would have gotten a ton more done instead of hitting refresh for hours! :)

MM said...

Congrats - you're big time now!

Sherry said...

Welcome Tyger!

Meli said...

Congrats Enty! I've been reading since Jan 1, 2012. Dlisted directed me here for the big reveals day and I've been hooked ever since. I've wanted to come out of my shell and comment for months, but I've been too shy/scared. But maybe now I'll join the conversation and make some friends :)

Hi CDANers!

Candyland said...

Congrats Enty! I can't wait until the big reveal when you hit 20,000 followers on Twitter!

Theresa said...

I don't post often but just want to say I love this blog and reading everyone's comments. Congrats Enty and thanks for keeping me informed and entertained for the past 6-ish years!!! xoxox

SophiaB said...

I didn't really 'get' CDAN for a long time. Started out w/TMZ. Found DListed, then TedC. Then Celebitchy/Lainey. I didn't like CDAN because it was an awkward site for my Crapberry. Now that I have reluctantly converted to Android, I can sort of navigate this site-though I have my complaints-and since I have been exiled from Celebitchy commenting, I spend a tad more time here. When the little bebe in IRobit's fam went to heaven, I realized what a beautiful online community you are. I recognize DListers & Celebitches. I enjoy all of the different communities-Celebitches are totally witty and DListers are just the raunchiest bunch if nutso's-but there is a special warmth here.

Personally, i cannot imagine the ability to be so consistent and not lose the edge that Enty (mostly) maintains. There is an air of benevolent acceptance all around-even for hge occasional trollmonster-and I am glad that this little oasis of comradery in the midst of the madness is here.

Sometimes I wonder what people are doing spending such time online. Myself included. But somehow the essential anonymity allows for things to be said that would otherwise be locked up. And that is a gift that can be very precious indeed.

Mostly though, I think people are wierd and it is NICE to be able to say it, share it, and BE it.

Rock on Enty! Get yourself a nice bottle of your favorite indulgence and raise a glass to yourself. This is QUITE an accomplishment even if it pays little.

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

Congratulations, and here's to many more!

SJBWow said...

loooooong time lurker - first time poster - Congrats on the big 25K Enty

Unknown said...

25,000 deserves a big reveal! Congrats!

Unknown said...

Cheers! This is amazing. I lurk a lot and rarely comment but this is handsdown one of my favorite blogs. I love the sense of community here. Enty and everyone, you guys rule.

StewMcG said...

Congrats on your latest milestone, Enty!

skimpymist said...

Aww I feel so special. In celebration of this milestone enty should reveal a juicy blind like who's the new coke mom who pimped out her kid or another mv clue.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

I've been coming here for over two years now. The time sure flew. I don't even comment on other gossip sites. To all lurkers, I just want to say don't be shy. It all starts with a single comment. I made one comment in a post 2 1/2 years ago, then another, came back each day and kept commenting regularly. Now I feel like one of the gang. Every day, every week I'm here.

I'm not leaving either.

Congrats Enty.

Brooke said...

Congrats Enty!!! Love the blog! Love the regulars, especially the Count. ;)

Turkish Taffy said...

Thank YOU, Enty, for putting some fun into my day. Today has been a special shitstorm, pardon my French. Thanks for the fun and entertainment, and for reminding me that there are still some humans with intelligence, humility and kindness out there.

All about Eve said...

@FSP, Hahahaha!!!

libby said...

YAY!!!!!!!!

califblondy said...

Seven years?? Time does fly when you're having fun and I've had a lot of fun here. Thanks to everyone, especially our big bacon dawg. XOXO

TanyaTurner said...

Thank you, Enty! And thanks to everyone on the site. I thoroughly enjoy VIPBlonde, MeanieReese, FSP, Libby, EmEyeKay, AuntLiddy, Count Jerkula, Lucas, Robot....all of you!

Hazeldazel said...

congrats! Bacon treats for everyone!

Silly Girl said...

SO glad to see everyone come out for this post! I don't comment often, but I read all the posts, and all the comments. Except about Taylor Swift. I skip over those....
Anyway, welcome to all the lurkers! Come out and play! Not many bite, and those who do quickly get their peepee's whacked. We stand up for our friends here!
Love you, Enty. All of your personalities. :) Congrats on your 25k!

Congratulations.

EGB said...

I second what IJU said, and thanks for giving us this place, Enty!

Melpomene25 said...

Congrats Enty! I've been lurking since nearly the beginning and rarely allow a day to go by without a visit here! Thank you for affording me a brief escape from reality, entertainment while waiting for appointments, a way to kill time on car rides, a snark outlet, and this list goes on and on! Of course, this site wouldn't be what it is without all of the awesome commenters...although I do wish some of the OGs would make a comeback :(

Carrie said...

What does MV mean? What is the MV Blind??

mynerva said...

Congrats Enty and thank you for this blog : )

MAC said...

@ Carrie, it is the mother of all blinds here at CDAN. Everything comes back to MV, lol. On the left side of the screen go to labels and in the drop down find MV. It will give you all the blinds/updates on her. And if you never have, I suggest you go back to the first year or two of the site and read all the old posts/blinds especially the "long blind items" there's some good stuff in there :)

Kim said...

Awww....group hug everyone! Yay, Enty!

ForSure said...

Oh "Enty" whoever you are, the new owner(s) of this site, how could you have any 'memories' of the first day of thsi site? Is this a guest post from the long gone founder?

You are all so sad, gossiping and commenting about fake stories of people you don't even know and are just plain jealous of. Don't you have lives? Go get some lives. Lives, I tell you, LIVES!!!!!

/trolling.

Lord, that BS was hard to write. How do people troll for a living? It takes too much energy and makes my head hurt.

Happy 25,000th post Enty. Welcome lurkers. Shout out to the regulars. :)

SusanB said...

This is pretty much the only gossip site I go to now. And definitely the ONLY one where I look at the comments. Happy 25,000!!! I think of you Enty every time I see that LaQuinta ad where he "brings home the bacon"

shopgirl said...

Wow 7 years! Ups and downs and lots of laughs and intrigue. And who amongst.us can forget the enthusiasm of Timmy/Shemy? Thanks and hugs to all! Bacon and cocktails all around.

Congratulations Enty from 'Across the Pond'.I shall make a 'bacon butty' in your honour ...

Maja With a J said...

Congrats Enty!

I have definitely made some real life friends through this site - you know who you are ;)

I've been reading and commenting since around Timmy/ Shimmy - can't remember if that was the blind that brought me here or if it was posted shortly after I started reading. All I know is that if MV is ever revealed, it'll be the same thing - so many red herrings in the BI that when you know the reality of it, it's not really that big of a deal...*L* I still love the site though, even though I don't comment as much as I used to!

nunaurbiz said...

Love ya, Enty! MWAH!

@FSP - SNEETCH!

I just moved to a town where I don't know anyone for work. Some days this is my sole form of entertainment and most days it's my favorite.

Keep up the good work.

feraltart said...

Congrats to Enty & all the readers & commenters that contribute to the success of this blog. I miss seeing some of the old regulars who used to comment & encourage any lurkers to start. Don't worry if you are in a different time zone, I am in Australia so am late to the party but very lucky because I get to read all the comments. Have a great day everybody.

Phillygrrl said...

Mazel Enty on your milestone blog post...been reading for a few years now and my day isn't complete without checking CDAN at least 10 times for the latest. Thank you for giving all of us a juicy escape via the fucked up lives of the rich and famous!

BTW hi Himmmm, good to see you

OKay said...

I had visited here a few times, but I started coming to this site regularly specifically because Ace over at Blind Gossip hates you so. freakin'. much. I've been here every day since. The Entys are SO much better than Ace, and the blinds are the best!

Lelaina Pierce said...

Congrats, Enty!

I have been a reader for about 5-6 years now. I can't remember how I found this blog, only that when I did I couldn't stop reading it (even when I shouldn't have been reading it..ahem, work).

Love the friendships I've made through the blog. :)

Thanks for always entertaining us!

EmEyeKay said...

Love to you too, Mayor! Miss you!

I've been reading this site for at least 6 years, it must have been shortly after the site started. I'm too busy at work during the day so I don't get to catch up until l get home, but I read all the posts and most of the comments. Thanks for the last 6 yrs!!!

Awww. Congrats, Enty! This is the only blog I read daily and probably the only website (other than Facebook) that I go to daily. Thank you for writing!

discoflux said...

I really have met some great people here and had a great time reading for the last few years. Thanks for making it all happen, Enty. I raise my glass of Stone Sublimely Self Righteous ale to you. It's really a beer. I'm not being facetious. It's my favorite!

LMAO!!!

Unknown said...

Thank you, Enty! I love this site and the commenters are definitely the heart of the blog. You guys crack me up and put a smile on my face. Keep up the good work, Enty!!

Robert said...

Congratulations, Enty! Like many, I seem to remember the Timmy/Shimmy blind as about where I started, then backtracked to the beginning, and have kept up ever since. A great bunch of people here, some of them now real life/internet friends, snarky as hell but stepping up when needed to show their hearts are in the right places. (Some of the comment threads have been extremely informative, as well.) Mazel to Entward and to all the readers old and new who share the love of all things gossip.

Anonymous said...

Congratulations Enty! And a nice "hello" to all my fellow commenters! You've truly made the last year and a half special. I read every day. I love our little community!

Heart you all so much!

zeldafitzgerald said...

Dear Enty and commentators, you have saved my sanity over the past few years, through madness, moving states, drug issues, blinding tragedy and incandescent happiness. i know you never knew it. I don't comment heaps - and when i do, i look like a twihard, what a dork - but thanks for all the fish.

love zelda

Please Play Again said...

Late to the party, but hope you saved me a drink - Happy 25k, Enty and all my fellow CDaNers!

FlirtyChick74 said...

Happy 25K Enty. Thanks for taking that chance and creating a great site. I've enjoyed meeting everyone and having some interesting convos. You've definitely set yourself apart Enty. I look forward to future posts. :-)

Colleen said...

Oh man, I'm a day late to the party, but cheers! Been reading since Gawker linked to Enty in mid-2008. Hard to believe it's been that long. Happy 25,000!

Anonymous said...

Happy 25,000 post Enty and CDAN Family! You've all been there for me during some dark, dark times. I love you guys, and our cyber family. I look forward to coming here, think about posts and comments on my off time. I love this site, the comments, the incredibly juicy dirt, blinds and reveals. The tone that new stories are written in are gold Enty, you mix humor with heart excellently and we appreciate you!!!!! Please don't ever stop this site, it's a beacon of humanity and integrity, in an otherwise inky well of soulless comercialism and sensationalist media lies.

DixieTheNoble82 said...

I know I am late but congrats

KellyLynn said...

I am glad you're still around, Enty. Congrats on the milestone. I hope it is just one of many more milestones to come.
