The Stick Chick Blog hits 10,000 views! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

The first post on this blog - Enter The Stick Chick - was made on December 06, 2013.

This week (to be specific, today, July 21, 2014), this blog surpassed 10,000 views.

I really appreciate all of you who read this blog, make comments here and in other channels, like Google Plus, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest and Facebook.  If you do like something I post, please do share it, I'd appreciate it very much.

I have enjoyed making new friends and getting into some awesome discussions with some amazing people from a variety of martial arts backgrounds.  I'm looking forward to making more such connections as the blog grows.  I'm finding the process of writing about the martial arts has actually helped my progress in many unsuspected ways, and I've been introduced to new ideas, arts, and channels by so many amazing and smart people I've met as a result.

I'd love to get your feedback on what I do well and what I don't do well - constructive criticism is welcome and appreciated. I'm always looking for martial arts humor, shenanigans, and other topics to write about, so please do share such things with me!

Troy Seeling's "Fight Meets Flight" series concluded this week, but I'm happy to announce he will be a regular contributor to the blog going forward on Tuesdays.  If you don't have a blog, and are interested in contributing here, I'd love to talk to you.  I'd specifically like to add someone to contribute regularly on firearms topics (safety and the law, training, firearm choices, self defense, etc.).

I made one promise recently to a martial artist that I know in real life that I now can fulfill.  He'd be the male Red Belt (now a Black Belt) getting tossed to the mat the image below.

Here you go, Bryce.

Missing - the loud "OOPMH!" sound he makes as he gets thrown.

Thanks again, everyone!
