Thanks! Over 1.5 million hits so far this year…

I want to thank everyone.  Earlier in October my humble blog site reached over 1.5 million hits and is close to 1.6 million now.  Thank you all for looking at my blog this year and for enjoying my quirky blend of dogs, cosplay, quantum physics, history, and writing.  It reflects my own warped personality and interests, so it is reassuring to know that over 1.5 million times this year others were interested in the same things.  🙂

Thanks Again!

untitled (28)Last week I went over the 600 mark for WordPress followers and over 4,000 for all media!  Thank you to all of you who make it exciting to share my eclectic and unusual blog with you.  We also passed the 630,000 hit mark this year which also rocks.  Remember, if you ever want to comment, or if you want to reach me personally, you can email me as well.  Also, for those of you who just read the blog, that is great, but I am also an indie published author and have four books out on Kindle at the moment.  Three are just 99 cents each, and the best and latest is just $2.99.  Feel free to check them out on the STORE tabe on my home page for this blog and let me know what you think.

Thank You Fellow Veterans Past and Present

Veterans Day is an opportunity for all of us to thank those who have risked it all to uphold the Constitution and the nation.  Here is the oath I took when I entered the United States Air Force:

The Oath of Enlistment 

“I, Michael Bradley, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”

There is no expiration date on the oath.  It does not say as long as I am active duty or in uniform.  As a disabled veteran, I can tell you that helping veterans is very important.  Battlefield medicine has become so good that I saw a recent statistic that 98% of wounded now survive.  Unfortunately, stateside VA care is abysmal.  There are wait lines for disability approval that can last years.  Mental health, financial help and family help are often lacking.

So at least for this day, join me in supporting those who have served, past and present.  See if you can reach out to at least one veteran in your life and say thank you.  It really does mean a lot.  Try writing or emailing your Congressman and Senators as well.  Our veterans deserve a whole lot better treatment when they return home.  These are young men and women, mostly 18 to 22 who join our military VOLUNTARILY to serve.  They serve so that you don’t face a draft or danger from other nations.  That alone should be reason to say thanks.

Thanks to everyone who takes the time to read my eclectic mix of posts.  As you know, I have been trying to get to 500 WordPress followers.  As of today, I reached 501!  I appreciate each and every one of you.  Along with my followers on other social media, I now have 1,971 people following this blog.  It makes it all worthwhile to spend the time posting knowing that I am bringing some funny, bizarre and interesting posts to so many cool people.

Welcome to New Followers!!

I really appreciate all of you who come to this blog site for some fun and interesting reading.  I am now up to 468 followers on my blog and if you throw in the twitter feed @mbtimetraveler, linkedin, FB, pinterest, etc., up to around 4,000.  Every one of you are awesome!  Thanks for the support, you reading the posts makes it fun for me to put them on here.  If you think this is an enjoyable blog, please recommend it to others so we can reach that 500 blog followers mark.

Also, if you ever want some longer reading, feel free to visit my store for links to my books.  I just finished the first draft of my fifth book, Blood Bank.  I am rewriting it and then it goes to the agents/publishers for consideration.  Wish me luck!

Here are some early concept covers courtesy of the lovely Cara Nicole (AZ Powergirl) posing as the heroine of the story, Shawna.  At the beginning she is dropped naked into the Blood Bank and has nothing to defend herself but her fierce spirit and a screwdriver.  Photography and design by Alfred Trujillo:

Thanks!

On Monday morning mbtimetraveler.com reached over 200,000 hits for this year alone and we’re not even through August.  Thanks to all of you who make it so much fun for me to bring you pieces of my strange, eclectic personality.  I post what I find strange, interesting or cool.  Archaeology, cosplay, comedy, steampunk, dogs, technology, vehicles, real life monsters, original writing, whatever strikes my fancy.  I am so glad that many of you enjoy and like to see some of the same things.  🙂
