It was recently expressed on a blog (I forget whose, sorry) that, what with various bots, visitor stats don't matter. Given the frequently of vampirestat as a traffic source in mine, it's a view a can sympathize with.
Despite that, I can't help having a warm feeling when I see that the blog has passed the 30,000 hits mark. It doesn't seem too long ago that I celebrated 20,000 with much hoo-ha (in fact it was April).
|A little number-crunching shows a nice steady rise|
To go back to the original point, it was suggested that a truer mark that one should celebrate is the number of comments; as a measure of 'community interaction'. All bloggers like to know they are being read and prompting thought in their readers.
In that light, I'm happy to say that the number of comments stands at 493 - a smidge off 500.
Why we should like round numbers is another question.
Thanks for visiting. Thanks for following. Thanks for all your comments and feedback.
