thanks a million!

Okay, it looks like this little blog is going to …. gulp …. reach the million-hits mark over the next day or two. This isn’t a ‘look at me!’ self-congratulatory post, I promise – it’s just a ginormous thank you to everyone who has visited and/or commented since October 2009. It’s been an absolute pleasure meeting up with you all, you’re great people with the kindest of hearts.

But hey, if you think I’ve been busy, have a look at this fella:

    Thank you, Chipsticks and congratulations! You have created a wonderful site, full of up-to-date information, great pictures – each worth a thousand words – and above all a spirit of optimism and purpose. Your success as well as the growing number of other pro-Obama sites give me hope that we can still get our message out, that there are in fact millions of people who share our views and are eager to join us.

    Oh, Chipsticks, meant to say congrats, too. You and BWD are simply doing an amazing job. You have re-energized PBO supporters everywhere.

    And see BWD’s report that PBO is at 51% in Gallup today. Spread the word.

    My congrats also Chipsticks!

    As I stated in an earlier post, your blog is part of my every day routine. I was so happy to find a place and people who admired and supported (and crushed on) the best president that we have had in my lifetime (a woman of a certain age). Thanks for all that you do. I will continue to let others know about you and BWD. Onward and upward, once more into the breach! To re-elect President Obama

    Ahh, Congratulations Chipsticks! Congratulations ๐Ÿ™‚ I just found out about your web site here, not too long ago, but I have worned It out every since I found out about It. You know, It appears that you have a very humble and modest spirit about you. You appear to be careful not to get too much credit. I say, carry on my Child, you do Good and Interesting Supporting of our President, the pictures that you choose to share with us. I Thank you so very much, and I come here daily to see what you got for us. It’s like a treat to come here, a place that I look forward to visiting.

    Shame on you for creating a place as popular as this! A place that I find myself checking for news so many times daily that I have stopped counting!! I love you, Chipsticks, your blog, and the wonderful posters who comment here, so hitting a million is something I’ve suspected this blog would easily do. Congratulations!!! We’ll be celebrating two million before we know it!!!!

    you are over a million now! =) congrats!

    I was just looking over older posts from when you first begun and found it so odd to see items without any comments! many of the videos from then i had trouble playing on my computer too. i tried to watch the BRUUUUUUUCE pre-election footage and the speech PBO gave at Dorothy’s memorial service. There is so much to look back over! You’ll be up to 2 million visits in no time! =)

    Congratulations Chipsticks !!! Like some of the other posters here, I rarely leave a comment but I check this website daily. Just LOVE this site. You do an inspiring and phenomenal job gathering great text, past and current, great videos and more along with your insightful, spot-on comments made even more powerful by the glimpse we get to see of your heart. Thank you so much for this awesome gathering place.

    Congrats Chipsticks! I am so thankful that you are here. You are the first place I visit each morning and then I move on to my other favorite place – “The Only Adult In The Room”. Thank you!!!!

  27. February 19, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    Hey Chip sticks(Sticky)- This is a beautiful thing you do here. We almost had no choice in watching all that nonsense that was on these Boards until you!!! ThanX and a great big virtual H U G in reaching the 1M milestone and for giving us a positive place to visit so we can keep up with our Leader of the Free World!!! I REALLY appreciate what you do here.

    Your dedication, wit, and heart make this such an incredible place to land everyday. My hope is that those that visit continue to spread the word about this oasis of sanity and inspiration. I still hold out hope that PBO himself will become aware of your good work
    (not to exclude the many others like BWD et al) and invite you to the WH someday. I’ll confess that I have prayed for divine intervention for exactly that opportunity.

    Congratulations on a well deserved milestone….and my heartfelt thanks for everyday delivering to so many such a wonderful gift.

    Congratulations Chipsticks. You’ve created a refuge. You highlight items and events and add commentary in a way I literally am not likely to see anywhere else because I unplugged my television two years ago and have been clean and sober from the conflictinator ever since.

    I also want to congratulate all you folks who have contributed to the hits. Despite everything you have resolved to remain pragmatic and positive and to meditate on moving forward with this President and each other.

    Life is good.

    Felicitations, Chipsticks! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€
    In the preceding months you have done wonders for my blood pressure, AND for my heart! I don’t think my heart has smiled (and even laughed outright) as much in the previous year, as it has done since it found the terrific videos you post featuring the Prez and his family & administration. I particularly enjoy the camaraderie you have cultivated with your smiling avatar, warmth and love. I really do feel a part of the ‘family’ here and IMO that is something you have accomplished by your blog ‘style’. Best wishes as you roll towards the second, and third, million hits ;).

    Moi, je te remercie MILLE FOIS pour cet endroit!

      This expresses my views so beautifully, as well. This site has been a safe-haven, and a refuge for my blood pressure and sanity. Thank you, Chipsticks. You will never know how much good you’ve done with this blog, and how grateful we all are to have this wonderful community to come to each day.

    Congratulations, Chipsticks! I read your blog and BWD’s blog so much, I accidentally posted a comment of congrats to you over at BWD’s The Only Adult In The Room. Anyway, congrats, again–and who knows? You might be hitting the 2,000,000 mark before this year is out.

    See what happens? I go out for a few hours and when I come back there is a mountain of loveliness waiting for me! Thank you all so, so, so much for the kindest of words, this little blog wouldn’t even exist without you. Love you all!

    My congratulations to you Chipsicks. God, you have been a life saver as in lowering my blood pressure and saving me from going bold from pulling at my hair a million times a day as I would listen to all the crap said on tv about the President or reading about the lies about the President and his admnistration’s policies. Thank you for all your hard work as well as keeping us well informed. Best wishes. Love, love, love.

    I always check two sites each and every a.m. and p.m. Yours has been on top of my favorites for a very long time.
    Thank you for the joy you bring to “O” supporters and for readers, like me, who hardly ever comment – but are here with
    all of you guys each and everyday! It’s ALWAYS a celebration here! KUDOS TO YOU Chipsticks!

  50. February 20, 2011 at 4:13 am

    Congratulation Chipstick on surely reaching over 1 million. I don’t post often but I check your site, at minimum, twice a day. I love the videos you put up because a lot of the old ones I haven’t seen or forgot about them, so thank you for that. Thank you for the positive and up-to-date information you bring to all of us is amazing, do you ever sleep? And thank you for creating a site where we can read about, support and love President Obama, Michelle Obama and his administration without having to constantly defend our feelings, it feels very nice and “homey” to be here and re-meet people from other sites and meet new people too. Did I say thank you yet? I will (great line by Antonio Banderas from the move Desperado). I will be posting more and visiting more to push you to 2 million….. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I am late for the party. Oh, dear Chipsticks we love you so much for giving us a place of sanctuary from the negativity out there. I always smile when I am here and sometimes even laugh myself silly with your sense of humor. The info you give us about our President is priceless and you keep us balanced. I don’t worry as much about things, now that I have found your site and wish I had found it sooner.

    So, Congratulations , you deserve every click on your site, and we are in solidarity with you in our love of our President and our love of you.
