50,000 Visitors Since Installing My Site Meter
I guess it is a blogging tradition to thank all my visitors every once in a while when certain plateaus are achieved. OK, thank you. I think it just a reason to brag though. Hey check this out, I got my site meter up to 50,000, I'm so great.
I started my blog in January of 2005, but I didn't install a sitemeter until July 18th 2005. Prior to that I figure I was getting 10 hits a day tops. But to equalize that, I didn't figure out how to not have my hits count on my blog until around September, so the 50,000 total is pretty legit.
I admit, I spam my blog (on Yahoo message boards especially), in order to get more people to see my thoughts. I want the world to see my creations.
I happen to know the person who had the 50,000th hit: Catherine, from Austin(she sort of looks like the girl in the cake). She is one of my Yahoo buddies from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict boards. I'm so happy she got the honor of being my 50,000th as 50,001 was that Jew hating bitch from France, Bernarda.
Hits are a funny thing, I'm not sure how many times one person can register hits in one day from one computer. My biggest influx of hits came when Pharyngula linked my Penn and Teller video on the bible that I posted in March. I think I got over 2500 on one particular day, maybe 3000. For that month alone, I got over 15,000 hits. Lately I get 170-300 hits a day. Not bad from what I understand about the blogosphere.
Oh yeah, thanks again, especially my loyal readers.
