I would have contacted you via e-mail but I can't find any contact info on your blog. I am the owner of a site dedicated to numbers 1 - 100,000. provides interesting and relevant information about the numbers we cover.

I was wondering if you would be interested in a link exchange. Every day when you post a new number of the day, you would link to our webpage for that number (i.e. if 2345 was the number of the day and in return we will link to your blog post from that page thereby helping both of us.

If interested, send me an e-mail to
