Around 8 pm on Friday, January 23, 2015
this blog, NHLife.wordpress.com
got its 500,000 hit.
To reach that was a goal.
Hit is sooner than I expected —
even at the start of the year.
I talked a fair amount as to the demographics of this blog just a few weeks ago, so I won’t bother to tread that same ground again.
I am happy. It amuses me. I am GLAD that so many people, from 199 countries, have found something of worth on this blog. That is the whole point. That there are at least 100 people who visit this blog every day is touching.
My now quiesced “Popes and Papacy” blog is at 681,267. I just checked. So this, my main blog, is catching up with that.
My abandoned ‘Papam‘ blog has clocked 198,318 hits and ‘Windows 7 Professional‘ 235,080. So just between these four blogs, and not counting any of my other blogs, and the ‘Comet ISON‘ blog did rather well in 2013, I am past 1.6 million hits. That is gratifying.
Now that I am past 500,000 I will NOT bother talking about hits again UNTIL we reach the Million mark. That will take about 2 years I reckon — but my hits have slowed down a tad since I am NOT posting as much as I did in 2014. I have, as some of you may have noticed, changed my blogging habits. I rarely blog during the day, whereas prior to 2015 I would start my work day blogging. Now I only blog during my 3rd shift — i.e., the one between about 11 pm and 1:20 am. So I am blogging for less time and moreover, when I am tired. I work on my book during the day, That makes more sense. I can get more done on the book. So that is the story as to why I am posting less.
I THANK YOU all for your support.
Happy Chinese New Year.
