What do they call it - a blogiversary? Well, I guess that means today is mine. I have been at it for 6 years. Apparently, I am not very good at it, or at least not that popular, judging by the scant visits and pages views I have gotten in all that time. (Edited to add: Scant only as compared to others, I am still surprised that so many people have read my blog.) Maybe there is a trick in getting a blog more widespread and thus better viewed than mine but I do not know it. I always sort of thought my content was as good as some other blogs that have at least as many visits and page views in one year as my blog has had in all six years but that is just my opinion.
To date, according to SiteMeter.com, I have about 193,516 visitors (or 192,230 depending on where I look on SiteMeter for the info). I also have somewhat more than 288,000 page views. Those stats are for all six years. I wonder if that is right though because Blogger shows me as having 211,825 page views since only May 2008; I think that is when they started taking stats. It also says I had 9,530 page views last month but a chart they have shows me as having 10,902 page views last month! Go figure because I can't.
None of that matters very much. What matters are my readers. I hope those of you who do read my stuff find it informative and useful when it is meant to be such and just enjoy whatever else I write the rest of the time. Any respectful and reasonable suggestions on things you might like to see me write about, in my blog, would be appreciated.
All the best,
