The Race to 5,000

March 24, 2010 by admncc

I’ve been blogging since May 28, 2008.  And during that time, The Constant Complainer has become a truly interactive site.  Although I don’t have a lot of time, I do my best to keep the content fresh, publish several posts per week and/or offset my own posts with Guest Posts.

To date, we’ve had 225 posts in 28 different categories and are approaching our 5,000th comment.  We’ve even received a few awards along the way.

But like I was saying, we’re on pace to reach our 5,000th comment in this post.  I currently follow 54 blogs and from what I can tell, achieving 5,000 comments in 225 posts (and in less than two years) is descent.  So let’s do a contest to celebrate.  And if enough people comment, someone should be the 5,000th in this post.  And if it’s you, here’s what you’ll win:

  • The Constant Complainer t-shirt (standard prize shamelessly promoting us)
  • $75 American Express Gift Card (buy yourself something)
  • If you run a blog, I will give you some free publicity; which should send some readers your way (the gift that keeps on giving)

So let the fun begin…  Leave a comment, tell us a complaint or something that’s on your mind, suggest another blog to read, nominate a “Moron of the Week Award” candidate or just say hi.  And thank you for your continued support.

    5,000 comments? Awesome! Congrats! I’ve been blogging for 1-1/2 years and I can tell you I probably don’t have !/5th the comments. Of course, I suck, so that probably explains it.

  2. Congrats! That is a lot of hot air…….I mean comments.

    BTW, didn’t I win an Amex Gift Card awhile back?

  3. Zig the "People" person says:

    I’ll take the giftcard… NCD is a moron!

  4. The Constant Complainer says:

    I want to complain about Reforming Geek. Haha. She previously won a gift card a while back and then never responded to my requests on where to mail it. LOL. Just kidding, my friend. Yes, I still have it. I’ll e-mail you.

  5. Ron says:

    Just wanted to stop by and say congrats on not only this being your 225th post, but also for your almost 5000th comment. Way to go, my friend!

    Wishing you many more years of wonderful blogging!

  6. Leo Nevoli says:

    You do realize that if you would stop going to Vegas to find things to complain about, you would be updating the site on a regular basis, and you would have had 5,000 by now, and maybe pushing 10,000.

    Congrats on your success, and may you have many more complaints and comments.

  7. NeoConDon says:

    Dude…we have a Tyrant in the Whitehouse illegally forcing us to buy things, and you’re celebrating 5000 comments…???

    Tiger Woods is still a Boob!

  8. Dan says:

    Ah, the Tiger Woods “boob” comments are back! Give him the MOTWA, CC. I agree. And give one to Zig too, while you’re at it.

  9. Timmy says:

    I would like to complain about a few things this week.

    You know, if Tiger Woods was single the media would refer to him as a “Playboy” I think his only mistake was ever getting married. Why is he demonized as a sex addict and Wilt Chamberlain is looked on as a hero.

    I will be rooting for Tiger in the Masters this month. The only people I feel were owed an apology in that whole situation were his wife and more than her, his children. His family was betrayed, not the American freakin people. Other than that everyone else who feels they were owed an apology can go eff themselves.

    Second, why wasnt there a bigger outcry over Vice President Biden’s F-BOMB this week. Why weren’t there severe fines handed down from the FCC over this. The FCC is pretty quick to pull the trigger when it involves the latest shock jock on terrestrial radio or to drop the hammer over “nipplegate” but no fines for airing the F-word on live television WTF!!!

    And I nominate Big Ben for Molester…er…I mean Moron of the week. Reports are saying that he paid off the nightclub in Georgia to delete video evidence. NCD wasnt he one of the great role models from Cleveland(even though he isn’t from anywhere near CLE) from a post last spring? Someone more upstanding than LeBron for your children to look up to? Where’s your hero now?

    Give me my flippin’ giftcard and T-shirt

  10. NeoConDon says:

    Leave it to a communist loving putz like Timmy to get it all wrong. There is no way I EVER said Ben was a hero. He’s an effing traitor, and I have always said that. Now he’s an effing raping traitor. If the entire city of Pittsburgh and all of their fans spontaneously combusted, I’d throw a huge Guiness party. As a matter of fact, I wished the unconstitutional Obama-Care law on that entire city. Putz…!!!

  11. I’d like to complain that the cat ate my readers and I just now saw your “Contact” tab. Ha! I win. I emailed you with my address.

    I’d love to win again.

    Maybe I should leave each of these sentences as a separate comment.

    Um, no. I’m too lazy!

  12. Timmy says:

    Ahem, pesky thing about the internet NCD is things you say usually tend to stick around so denying that you said them usually doesn’t work. Although I admit to being wrong about you calling him your hero (I was working from memory) I was not wrong in your admiration for the man. For your insistance that he had far more class and intelligence than other athletes does that all on its own.

    The following is your comment from “Not So Kingly Behavior” which can be found in the archives under sports. Fans of the Constant Complainer may remember this one as it topped out above 105 posts, im guessing CC’s most commented on post. Your comment was the following…

    “Ben would NEVER behave like LeMoron(LeBron)…[THE NEXT PART IS MY FAVORITE]Ben has far more class and intelligence to disrespect Pittsburgh fans, or to embarrass himself the way LeBron has…I still can’t stand him (big ben.)

    Have another Guiness NCD…and CC seriously, send me my t-shirt

  13. NeoConDon says:

    You see people, this is how the radical commie lovers like Timmy change everything…and lie….

    Timmy said that I said that Ben was “one of the great role models from Cleveland”…Timmy’s first lie. I never said that.

    Then he said that I said that he “was more upstanding than LeBron for my children to look up to”…AGAIN, another lie.

    I’m too lazy to go back and see if he’s lying about what I opined regarding him having far more class, but I’ll give the commie the benefit of the doubt and stand behind that remark. Ben has not been officially charged with anything, and just because he’s an ugly loser that has to (allegedly) force women to touch him, doesn’t make him less of a moron than LeBron James. And let’s face it, it takes a pretty big scumbag loser to disrespect and look bad to Steelers fans. LeBron is a moron. I’m going to celebrate this year’s championship, and I’ll be happy when he finally leaves Cleveland.


  14. NeoConDon says:

    “Timmy”…Sometimes I wonder if you’re a cross breed between Zig and Lyin Linear Libby. If you are, you’re probably one ugly dude…that’s too bad since the Tyrant in the White House just raised the tax on plastic surgery.

  15. Jacki says:

    Oh, Hi!

    I am going to complain about our crappy weather! Last weekend it was absolutely beautiful, we were in shorts and t-shirts. And now? Rain and freezing temperatures!!

  16. TallElf says:

    I would first like to complain about Zig… His comments about a Tall Elf being an oxymoron many posts back is still cutting deep.

    Second I would like to complain about Don, I try to get away from politics and he keeps bringing them up.

    Third I would like to complain about this website. If it weren’t here for me to vent, I think that I would get a lot more work done, and be a little more positive about the situations I face, not feel compelled to BLOG

    4th I would like to complain about the keyboards at work. They are losing their letters. I think that keyboard keys should be molded with the letters all the way through, not just painted on. Especially on laptops, as they are just annoying when there are no letters on the keys.

    5th, I would like to complain about retail marketing. I am sick and tired of wanting to go in to make a purchase with cash, or credit only to be asked “Would you like a store card” Do you have your own bags? what’s your phone#? Your zip code? Do you have your shoppers card today (After you already swiped it oh brilliant one)Do you want an extra warranty? If the product doesn’t work, I will take it up with the company. If you don’t stand behind the product, why should I buy it?

    7th, I would like to complain about the # 6. That is why I left if off. No particular reason.

    8th, I could go on a rant forever on how they snuck the student loan bill through reconciliation with the health care bill, but I know that Don will probably bring it up later, and zig will bash on king barry, and so it all begins again.

    I think that concludes the rant for today, howerver there may be more tomorrow.

  17. TallElf says:

    Oh, and one more thing. I would like to complain about that guy TallElf before someone else does, and how he can’t keep together a cognitive rambling to save his life. Scattered are the cells, but at least they are still up there firing.

  18. Extreme John says:

    Just want to wish you an early congrats bro, 5k now 10k before you know it.

  19. The Constant Complainer says:

    Our 5,000th comment has been made. Congratulations to NeoConDon for his comment on March 29th at 2:43 p.m. MajorLeague09 made the 4,999th comment and ReformingGeek made the 5,001st comment.

  20. NeoConDon says:

    I’d like to thank Dick for writing his complaint…I never thought I’d win…If I weren’t such a cheap bastard, I’d donate it to someone, but instead I’ll visit a strip club and keep Zig’s family members at work for another night…I guess I would be donating it to someone in that case…Zig’s stripper family will need money to pay their unconstitutionally mandated health “care” insurance premiums!

  21. Dick says:

    Congrats to NeoConDon for winning the contest, and since it was my complaint that won him the prizes I hereby claim half of them! Just kidding! Congrats on your win, I’m glad I could play a part in it. And before I forget, congrats to TCC for their 5K comments, a real achievement in anyone’s book!
