Passed the 50000 hits mark a few days back – my rough estimate is that it was sometime around the 16th of April. The 435 day count is what the day Counter spat out. During that time I’ve banged out 234 posts. I wonder exactly how much of that 50000 figure would be left after you work in the bounce rate. WordPress.com’ stats are not THAT sophisticated to tell me. And I’m not THAT stat obsessed enough to wade through sitemeter‘s reports 😉
So what does the “magic” number mean to me? Surprisingly nothing much. Though numbers have more of psychological impact – specially on a “free” ad-less blog like mine. I wish it did. If there is a meaning – it is a warning. Specially for those might see illusions of “success” in raw numbers.
At least this little number gives a time pressed blogger something to peck-out a post about. Not the time for a sweep biographical look over the shoulder. Or entertain delusions of grandeur. But I will admit at this – one of many – “mile” stones that its been fun. It still is. 😀
Thank you to all those who have dropped by to read and kept the conversation flowing with your comments.
Now in honour of practicality, I’ll make a local back up of this blog. High time I did.
