You can't let them see you smile!
Please read the caption first so there are no spoilers in the discussion!
I was looking through your photos in the trading folder and I kept having a problem with each one, which I finally decided to whip into a caption .. many of your models are extremely happy! I actually said, "STOP SMILING KATIE!!" so that twisted around into what I present to you here. I am not going to spoil it but I think you'll enjoy the ending!That whole STOP SMILING KATIE was the thunderbolt I needed, and this picture seemed the best one to work with since it seemed posed. The question of WHY someone would want her to not smile for the camera rolled around my head for about a minute when I thought, "I can sort of set this in one of her universes" and a lawsuit thrust itself into the plot which then wrote itself. I wasn't sure how to end it, when i said, "hmmmm, it would be nice if there was some sort of comeuppance for that sleazy lawyer .. bingo! or bimbo! Whatever that case may be!" That way the reader gets two for the price of one. Who says I don't give people value for their viewing dollar?!?
Jeez, I just realized this is my 2nd caption for you that deals with the law. I honestly think it'd be hilarious if you were a lawyer or judge or something! Perhaps THIS was the reason your character in another caption I made for you was turned into a woman!
Now Katie isn't the only one smiling! Dee-lusions of Grandeur is going to reach 2 million hits in the next 8-10 hours or so and I couldn't be happier! Each half million plateau has taken less time and I guess that means that you, the readers, are enjoying the work I do and the spirit of friendship that hopefully pervades this whole blog. Here is the time table for this site:
- First post : August 5, 2010
- 400k hits : May 22, 2011
- 1 million hits: February 24, 2012
- 1.5 million hits: October 4, 2012
- 2 million hits: March 7, 2013
The main point of the post is to celebrate hitting 1.5 million views. The blog nailed 1 million views back at the end of February (18 months) and about 8 months later reached its current status. I am going to try to narrow the gap even further and hit 2 million within 6 months. We all need goals, and that is one I will be shooting for. Perhaps I will miss the target, but its worth the effort! Even better, the blog is almost at 1300 comments, so all told, we get about 4-5 comments per post!I was talking out my ass thinking I could get to 2 million in 6 months, yet with your viewership, this blog was able to do it in FIVE months! Tremendous! More so, the blog has done a million page views in JUST over a year. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I wanted to use this blog to explain the goings on behind what a captioner does and why. I didn't expect much in the way of viewers, but overtime, I think its found its niche. Even better, I see lots of TG Caption Blogs that have taken inspiration from here and made their own sites unique and a place to visit daily. Its been a blast to watch, listen, and comment .. and I'm just getting started!
