I finally did it folks. As of this moment, The Dark Furie is the premier mobile blog on the entire site, even beating Opera’s own esteemed Opera Mini blog. Oh yeah! If you thought I had ego before then there will be absolutely no living with me now.
Opera Mini is the single most downloaded mobile application in the world and the main tool I use to put this blog together and comment on others. I feel kind of like a traitor beating it, but also a sense of pride. And why not eh? I’ve worked my ass off on this blog, agonising over the presentation of each post, thinking up ideas for things that may interest others as well as myself and writing up the posts themselves. Sure, sometimes I’ve slacked off and posted webtests and comics instead of putting together an article, but who else posts every day and hasn’t done that at some point?
Ever since Moe first pointed out that I’d made it onto the top 500 most visited blogs list I’ve always seen the Opera Mini blog as the unofficial target to aim for, though I never dreamed I’d actually manage to pass it by. By passing this milestone I actually feel I’ve achieved something here, at least until Opera Mini 5 brings ten million new visitors to that blog again.
