28 April Update: So the random number generator has done its thing (after removing duplicate entries, naughty naughty), and congratulations to Anne Cheung, the winner! I’ll be reaching out to you via email to get in touch.
Thank you to everyone for taking part and top marks for all the haikus. There will be more giveaways soon.
It would be amazing to meet up with the community, so stay tuned for June/July when we might be arranging a little do…
Amidst all the chaos with the site crash on Monday, I failed to notice that The Milelion had passed a little milestone, just a few days before its 2nd birthday.
All-time views on the site have passed the 1 million mark. To date, The Milelion has served 266,848 unique visitors over 595,885 sessions reading 1,262,817 pages. That’s none too shabby, considering that there are 462 articles in total published to date (including this one)
I wish I had some spectacular giveaway to mark this event with, but all I have is a brand new set of EVA Air Rimowa amenities kit and PJs, from my recent Miami No Vice trip.
I’m giving these away to a reader, so leave a comment below if you want to take part (you’ll presumably need to include your email address as well so I can contact you). Write anything- say hi, write a haiku, deliver social commentary on postmodern feminist theory. Doesn’t matter. The winner will be chosen randomly on Friday 28th April at 12pm Singapore time
Local postage will be covered free of cost, although meet ups are always welcome. For an additional S$50, I will roll around in the PJs after working out. For an additional S$100, I won’t.
Thank you for supporting The Milelion, and here’s to more years ahead!
