Today marks a first anniversary of sorts for this blog. While it began several months earlier, it's been equipped with a free counter since September 26, 2006. A free counter provides limited information, but I find these one-year statistics interesting:
Total page views: 8,974
Total uniques: 4,024 (a "unique" is a visotor who has not visited in the past 24 hours)
Of course I've set no records here; I understand that popular blogs get hundreds or thousands or milions of hits per day, and some visitors probably landed here by mistake. Still, for a casual, personal, non-commercial blog, this one has done surprisingly well, in my opinion. The personal satisfaction is priceless.
How about submitting more comments? I would like to know more about my audience.
