Why Do I Always Forget ...

.... Anniversaries?

Who am I fooling?  I forget pretty much everything that is attached to dates. Birthdays (my own included), race days, holidays, appointments, and did I already say Anniversaries?

Don't start the hatin' ladies it is not my wedding Anniversary that has come and gone, it is the Three Year Blogaversary (8/27/08) of Dangle the Carrot which occurred 3 weeks ago!

If you are a new reader and have absolutely nothing better to do and would like to learn a little more about the author of my mom's everyone's favorite endurance blog here are some links to get you started:

Last Year's 2nd Blogaversary Post

My Favorite Post

The best part about realizing it was my belated blogaversary is that it always seems to force me to go at the sitemeter on the blog.

Here are da stats:

Total Posts: 709 or 236.33 per year - suck it Arianna Huffington!
Total Page Views: 166,715 
Average Views per Day:  155
Largest Amount of Views One Day:  4,284

Another cool thing about looking back is that it makes me realize how much crap I have actually posted on the poor internet.  In retrospect, about 95% of all my posts are utter garbage.  Which, incidentally, is the same percentage of garbage songs Pearl Jam released after TEN.  So what I am saying is that I am exactly like Eddie Vedder - got it?

In all seriousness, I'd like to thank each and everyone of you who has taken even a brief moment to read this blog. This all started so that I could be helf publicly accountable to shed some pounds and has turned out to be so much more then ever imagined.

Thank You!

Thanks for Reading,



  1. What no mugshot picture? Happy blogoversary!

  2. You have to respect any many who is going to compare himself to Eddie Vedder :D Happy Blogovers... whatever you said! Congrats!

  3. I will need to read the archives to catch up on the best of the carrot. Happy 3 years and 3 weeks.

  4. what in the fuck did you write that got you over 4 THOUSAND hits? wait... don't answer that... or do... i really want to know. My boob thing has only gotten a thousand.

    I am about to hit one year...

    Happy Bloggoversary! or however you spell it :P

  5. You're welcome! haha

    Happy Bloggoversary!

    4,284 views in a single day? You're mom must have visited a lot that day. haha

    Keep up the awesome blogging!

  6. Is "helf" Texan for "held" responsible?

    Just checking because many people in Missouri, which I pronounce Missour"e" say "Missour"a". They also say pronounce Sundae, Sunda"a" instead of Sunda"y". I am a transplant so I am wrong.

  7. Dang, Old Fart. You've been around these net webs a long time! Keep up the good stuff.

    And I agree - what the hell did you write that got >4000 hits????

  8. I don't want this to go to your head Eddie, but I do love your blog. I refer to your blog in conversation with other triathletes quite often. Almost as much as I refer to Seinfeld. In fact, just yesterday, I brought up one of my favorite posts you did recently about the tri coach certification with another triathlete. Happy 3rd Anniversary to the Carrot!

  9. We forgive you for being late! Happy blogoversary!

  10. Only three years? You've got a BIG following for only three years. I've been blogging for six years and only have a fraction of the followers. I better get moving...

    Happy anniversary!

  11. Dang, over 4k hits in a day?!?! Get out!

    I agree... 95% garbage here ;) HAHA!

    Good stuff though, we had a similar journey with P90X and then running then triathlon.

    Hope all is well!


  12. Needless to say, 3 weeks ago, I gathered up all your followers for a surprise party that you didnt show up to, sighhhhhhhhh


  13. Happy bloggerversary. I did not forget. I put a card in the mail to you last week with a check. Did you get it yet?

  14. Pearl Jam release and album after Ten?

    And btw Eddie Vedder is still kicking it and not only for Pearl Jam but for Creed as well.

    Is the 4K in one day from slowtwitch?

    Happy Anniversary. I've put it in my calendar to remind you for next year.

  15. The 5% that is good is better than 99% of what's out there, so on a curve you are doing awesome.

  16. Also, everything the Toadies have released after Rubberneck.

  17. For some reason I can't open the "fat Jeff" pics. Probably just as well, I don't want to ruin the skinny images.

  18. And I for one am glad you're still at it 3 years later! Keep it going...especially the rants. ; )

  19. happy blogoversary !!!!

    unreal 1 day total...

    and if ur calling only 5% worthy, it has been an unreal content and experience in that percentage. The Carrot has been a HUGE HUGE help to me. Thanks for that bro! the EFS LS were super for me last year, the training schedule invaluable, and those push-ups...who knew? :)

    Congrats and Thank you to the Carrot!


  20. Happy blogoversary!! :)

    You are way cooler than Eddie Vedder.
