Jump the Snark Turns Three!

Last Friday was Jumped the Snark’s THIRD(!) birthday, and we celebrated in style, with a night out at our most favorite restaurant.

When we stirred late Saturday morning (okay, fine, early Saturday afternoon), after clearing the cobwebs from our head, and wiping the Cool Ranch Doritos crumbs off our face, we tried to remember what happened the night before.  But after the hazy memories of chicken finger baskets and teriyaki flavor bowls and mudslides and oreo brownie sundaes and Killian’s Red slowly came into focus, we thought about the last three years of this blog, and how grateful we feel that we’ve been able to provide you, the reader at home, with our dumb posts and unnecessary commentary and our eerie fixation with TGIF.  But you’ve stood by us, and we thank you (and, yes, we’re talking to one person, which is essentially our readership).

And as we typically like to do on any landmark day here at Jumped the Snark, let’s take a moment and look back at the past three years, and reveal our #post of all-time, with 8,798 views:

It’s our home page!   Yay!
Alright, fine, that’s not very exciting.  In fact, it’s devoid of any excitement of all.  But the important thing is that 8,798 times, whether by accident or by design (and, let’s be honest, mostly by accident), world-wide web surfers landed on this site,  for two seconds or for two hours.  Did they stay on long enough to read any posts?  Will anyone read this post?  Probably not?  But if we can waste someone’s time for just a few seconds, and maybe provide some genuine frustration or disappointment, well, then it’s all been worth it.
Happy Birthday, Everyone.

Happy 2nd Birthday to Us!

It feels like it was just twenty-four short months ago that we launched this blog, but it’s actually been two full years.  Can you believe it?  When we started this thing, selling our comic book collection, maxing out our credit cards, and practically begging for help from all our friends at the convenience store, we were just hoping to break even.  Post a few Office commentaries, make our buddies laugh, maybe get a few dozen page views and call it a day.  Little did we know that years later we’d still be here, attracting 3,000 readers a day*.  We’ve come a long way, baby.

So, in honor of our 2nd birthday, we thought we’d look back at some of our favorite Jumped the Snark banners, a little walk down JtS memory lane.

Our 100th post:

Happy Birthday, Jim Henson!

He would have been 74 years young today.  Wonder what it he would have thought of all this hoopla over Katy Perry’s breasts.  My guess is he wouldn’t have objected.  It’s a shame it has to mar his day.

(sidenote: never thought I’d be able to tag a post with “Jim Henson” and “breasts.”  Just goes to show that anything is possible).

One Year Anniversary!! We Did It!!

Some people said it couldn’t be done.  Others asked specifically that it not be done.  Most have no idea this even exists.  But, despite all the doubters and naysayers and initiated, we’ve defied expectations and reached our one year anniversary.  It was just a year ago today (or “was it only a year ago?”) that Jumped The Snark launched with the unveiling of the Judd Apatow Effect.  Full disclosure: we felt pretty confident that our thoroughly researched and elaborately detailed chart was going to rocket us into the blogosphere, but the truth is that it’s a year later and readership hasn’t grown since that first week and we’ve still yet to be linked to on Pop Candy.  But, despite Whitney’s constant rejection and a plateau in daily views, we’re committed delivering unneeded thoughts on SNL and unsolicited commentary on The Office and irrelevant Growing Pains videos and cheap shots at Guy Fieri and news on the Muppets that’s of no interest to anyone but me.  That’s a Jumped The Snark guarantee.

If you’ve joined us thus far, we do humbly thank you for spending a few minutes patronizing this little site.  If, for some odd reason, you googled “Jumped The Snark one year anniversary” and ended up on this blog for the first time, welcome.  We’re happy to have you, even if we question the logic of your search terms.

It’s been a great first year.  But we’re looking forward to bigger and better things in year two and beyond.  As long as there are videos of TGIF sitcoms on YouTube we’ll be around.  Now, let’s have some cake!

See you in the future!

Cause it’s birthday time over here at Jumped The Snark!  So, in honor of the occasion, here are a few prudent video selections:
