I am trying to be more cognizant of positive things in my life. The closing of 2003 brought about two milestones. My car (the Boycruiser) flipped over 100,000 miles and I accumulated over 100,000 visits to thebrotherlove.com. I don’t know which one freaks me out more.

For some reason, I never expected to own a car with so many miles on it (and 98% of them are miles I drove). But outside of a few issues I need to address soon, the boycruiser runs fine. In fact, my Grand Am’s given me very few problems in the nearly five years I’ve owned it. The best news is I will be paying off the car this year and will (hopefully) be able to live without a car note for awhile. I so look forward to that. I’d love something new to drive but not if I have to pay for it. Besides, all I have to do is take better care of my car and he’ll take care of me.

As for thebrotherlove.com, I never had any precise goals when it came to visitors to this website. I like having people read my writings of course and I do check my referral logs fairly regularly to see where my traffic is coming from and what pages are most popular. But I have no real “goal” as for what those numbers should be.

Nevertheless, my site has performed decently thanks to one, particularly inflammatory post and a cocktail recipe. I can be proud of that. Now I’m thinking of how I can kick it up a notch. More prose, perhaps? Nudity? And what about those music reviews I wanted to do (before everybody else started doing them)? Hmm… I really like J*****’s poll idea. Or maybe I should give the mini-blog thing a try again. What ever I decide, it will be delicious. Trust.

Stay tuned, you sexy beast. And thanks for stopping through.

j. i’ve enjoyed reading your blog for this past year i’ve been aquainted with you via the web. kicking it up a notch might require more work that you bargain for. i have no complaints with thebrotherlove.com so far…. but if we can get a few more kevin specific posts, that might add that extra spice you’ve been looking for. LOL!

yea add kevin specific posts *lol* but ihave truly enjoyed visiting/reading thebrotherlove.com journal you write well, keep that up.

by the way keep the maintenance up on the grand am cause having a car note isn’t fun at all i can’t wait until 2006 to pay off mine and paying car notes sure make your life go by fast. hey when you get that caddy xlr, pick me up i wanna cruise in it with you.

happy belated new year may it be filled with plenty of blessings.

I creeped through your site long before I posted my first comment. I found it refreshing, interesting, and heavy on the love…shit I crave when surfing the web.

Congrats on the accomplishments, you deserve it, for a site well done.

J, I am totally impressed and wish you much continued success. My beast will be paid for this year and lawd knows she needs some love.

Before I moved to NYC, I owned a 1986 Grand Am, that I bought in ‘87, which lasted until ‘98. I don’t know how many miles I put on it, but that last year, it was sucking money out of my wallet in repair bills. I miss that old thing.

Yours is one of the blogs I always read because there’s usually an interesting take on your personal life that never borders on self-indulgence or whininess. These things can be a great place to navel gaze, but you seem to invite the reader to share a part of your world.
