I’m shocked (hence, eel) … we just passed 400,000 followers.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again … thank you thank you thank you for all your puns, love, support, reblogs, sharing, etc. This blog is the most amazing community of like minded people who all have a passion for wordplay.
Not to get all preachy but this blog came out of my passion for puns. I’d still be doing it even if the only followers were my mom and dad. But it goes to show that if you are passionate about something and do it day in and day out, people will take notice. And this blog has continued to grow based off the punbelievable community of YOU, the funny punslingers who take the time out of your day to stop your car, take a picture of a punny sign, and send it in. That any of you would take the time to do that for this blog is mind blowing to me.
If you promise to keep sending in pictures, I promise to keep posting, captioning, and tagging. I promise to keep growing the site. We’re in the middle of a logo design contest … any designers out there who want to enter, I’d love to see what you got. We’re also working towards a complete site redesign and maybe a t-shirt store in the coming months.
Two last things:
1. As I’ve said, this blog is YOURS as much as it is mine. Send me messages, tell me what you want to see. What am I doing right? What am I goofing up? Who are you? Tell me your story. Maybe I’ll start doing profiles of the top contributors. We all live in Puntown, USA and we should get to know our neighbors. Ok I’m rambling.
2. If you like this blog and truly want to support it, please pass it on to a non tumblr friend. Share the link with your parents. Post one of the pics on facebook. There are ads scattered in the actual site and every time someone goes to arewehavingpunyet.com - I get like, 10 cents or something. I solemnly swear that any money I make off the blog in the next year or so, I will 100% pour it back into the blog to make it better.
