On June 4th of last year, we announced that we’d crossed the 1 million hit threshold for 2007 (see prior post “1 million hit milestone for 2007” June 4-07), with 25,000 unique visitors YTD. Readers had come from 533 cities in 57 different countries over the prior 30 days (May 5-June 4, 2007). Daily readership came in around 600 at that point in 2007.
For 2008 year to date, we’ve had 2.2 million hits, about 50,000 unique visitors, and daily readership peaks at 3,000 between the folks who get it via Feedburner, internet browsing, or plain old subscribers (see to the right). For the humour of it, Google Analytics reports visitors from 1,149 different cities in 86 countries during the past 30 days: our top 5 visiting nations are Canada, U.S.A., U.K., India and Australia.
It looks as though we appeal to the present and former protectorates of the British Empire, despite leaning to independence from the Royal Family; once the beloved Queen is no longer our Queen, that is (see prior post “The Canadian Republic” March 28-07).
A sincere thanks to everyone who stops by from time to time, and particularly for the readers who provide comments to some of our posts. It helps stimulate new ideas, which makes the next day’s blog a little bit easier.
Did I mention this is hard work?
