Visitor 100,000 arrived on this blog this morning. That visitor came from Melbourne to visit Christchurch earthquake. Welcome.
I began this blog on 19 March 2006 with a test post. Visitor 50,000 arrived three years later, on 7 March 2009. I thought that was a pretty big number. Now in a bit under two years, I have added another 50,000 visits.
The numbers aren't big by the standards of some blogs. Still, by my standards as an independent it's a pretty amazing number.
Over 80% of my visitors come via search engines, look very quickly and move on. The ones that give me greatest pleasure are my regulars plus those search engine visitors who actually spend a little time and look at a couple of pages.
