Get Rich Slowly has received its one-millionth visitor. At around 10pm Pacific last night, 325 days after launching, the site passed the 1,000,000 mark. Thanks to all of you have contributed guest entries, story ideas, and comments. It’s your contributions that make Get Rich Slowly such a valuable resource.

JP came closest to guessing the date and time of the millionth visitor. His prediction of 11:59 pm was less than two hours off the mark. As promised, he’ll receive a shiny new iPod shuffle.

There was actually a tie in the contest to guess the date and time of the 100,000th spam comment. The comment arrived sometime on the early morning of February 28th, sandwiched between Ryan’s guess of 1:17am and MizD’s guess of 3:45am. Both have elected to receive the pickled vegetables.

The sad thing is that I’ve already received another 8,697 spam comments in less than a week. I don’t know what I’d do without Akismet.

Thanks to everyone who played along. I am still trying to develop some reader partipation contests that are more appropriate to the site’s theme. Stay tuned!
