No this is not old news. The last 100,000 post was in mid-June when this Blog was inching towards 100,000 all-time views.
Since then we are approaching, and will reach it today or tomorrow, 100,000 for THE YEAR.
We are still in August and we have had TRIPLE the hits for all of 2012.
It, as they will always tell you, has all to do with content and perseverance.
Here are the first 8 posts on this blog MINUS the ‘Windows 7’ posts that I moved to my Windows 7 blog (which has an all-time hit count of 184,400).
I started this blog, in anger, when I found out that Dartmouth Hitchcock Clinic (DHMC) had quite literally abused me in the posterior! I wanted others to know so they could avoid getting violated.
I was no stranger to blogging. I already had multiple, quite active, pope blogs.
After the DHMC post I didn’t do another until I had a run-in with U.S. Cellular. Again the goal was to give others a heads up.
Then Windows 7 came along and I really got hooked on it – especially since I had this PC, handbuilt, for Windows 7. I started blogging incessantly about Windows 7. I also found many tips on how to get the best from Windows 7 and even how to fix some bugs. Suffice to say that these posts became very popular and remain so — since some of the bugs, such as the appearance of the annoying padlock, still persists. So I created a new ‘Windows 7’ blog and moved all the Windows 7 posts from this blog to that and then did my Windows-related posts on that blog. That blog still gets 100+ hits a day though I stopped posting on it way back in 2011. Just don’t have the time.
In February 2012 we started homeschooling Devanee because she was getting bullied at Alton Central School (ACS). Homeschooling proved to be a popular topic. That explains the spike in popularity in early 2012. Then the Olympics. My few Olympics posts were a hit. That is when I started posting here on a daily basis.
My ‘popes-and-papacy‘ blog has had 625,000 hits since 2010. That is another blog that I have now put to pasture. My ‘papam’ blog, also inactive, has had 184,000 hits. So 809,000 hits on just these two pope blogs.
Add the 133,956 from here and the 184,472 from Windows 7
and we have 1,127,812 hits!
Well all these hits hasn’t really made me rich — though of LATE we are seeing some ‘bennies’.
Just wanted to chronicle this, because that is what blogging is meant to be. Thanks. Cheers.
Yes, we did hit 100,000 on Saturday, August 24, 2013 as I had assumed in my earlier post.
