Happy 1st Birthday Imaginary Men!


So today marks a year since I launched this blog. Hard to believe that so much time has gone by and this blog has marked it all: the shirtless boys, the Brandon Flowers obsession, TV Boys and their wardrobes, the vampires, werewolves and stupid Stackhouses that have filled my entertainment life for the past 365 days.

Here’s some fun Imaginary Men facts:

  • Number of posts: 432
  • Number of comments: 1,002 (and that’s not even all just me making comments to jack up the numbers!)
  • Number of blocked spams: 1,404
  • Total Views: 55,442 (my goal of 50,000 hits by today’s date was surpassed back in July!)
  • Most popular post of the year: 25 Days of Imaginary Men: James Dean = 4,547 (not bad for a dead guy)
  • Post with the greatest hits in one day: Fifty on our Foreheads = 1,098 (thanks to being featured on WP front page)
  • Topic that put this blog “on the map”: Anything about Larry Mullen’s Scorpion t-shirt (in combination these posts all = just under 6,000 hits)

All in all it has been a fun ride and I’ve met so many fabulous people along the way – some have even become actual Real Life Friends which is very exciting. It is also great to know that there are so many like minded people out there who feel just as passionately as I do about music, TV shows, and cute boys.

Thanks to you all and I hope to keep you giggling and/or rolling your eyes for another year. Won’t you please have some cake with me to celebrate?

Love and many thanks,

    I count myself very lucky to have ‘met’ you through your blogs (here & on TKV) and then becoming friends in RL! So I am very grateful to you for creating this safe haven of sharing, perving and laughing!

    I look forward to getting emails to say you’ve posted something and reading your always humorous, often what I’m thinking and sometimes touching words.

    Here’s to many more birthday celebrations of Imaginary Men!

  8. Happy birthday!!!!! And that cake pic is INSANE 🙂

    When I met you I thought you had written for longer than a year because everything written was so precise and perfect. I can’t believe it’s only been around a little longer than we’ve been friends!

    It’s been an incredible ride and I’m so happy where the blog has gone and where it will go in the future! xoxo

  10. (Is it bad, that I was actually drooling over that cake pic? As in, there was actual saliva on my keyboard . . .)

    Your “baby” is one-year old! That’s awesome! That takes some serious dedication!

    You should be damn proud of all the fabulously fangirly and / or autobiographical posts you’ve written . . and written REALLY well, I might add. You definitely deserve all the blog hits and accolades you’ve received, so far.

    I’m honored to have met you, based on our shared love of Dawson’s Creek, The Vampire Diaries, True Blood, and, gosh, SO MANY OTHER THINGS! I can’t think of another person whose TV Brain I would rather share!

    Here’s to you, Amy! 🙂

  11. CONGRATS!!! and more years to come ❤
