Yes, this was a landmark I was working towards.
No, I can’t ‘spike’ the numbers myself. WordPress maintains the STATS and they ignore any and all access of a blog from the same IP address (and range) as that of the administrator (i.e., me).
This is a lot of work, but rewarding. Knowing that you have at least 600 views a day, day-in, day-out, is quite nice.
April and May of this year was when I had my ‘meltdown‘. Hence the low numbers. In January & February of last year and this year WordPress had documented issues with their STAT servers. So I lost thousands of hits. C’est la vie.
But, I plugged on. In 2015, when I hit the 500,000 mark I thought it would take me till February 2017 to get to 1,000,000.
Around March of this year I recalibrated that to Thanksgiving 2016.
The last 2 weeks I had November 20th as the day. Beat that by 2 days.
No, I am not going to ease up. Now to the next million.
Thank YOU for your support. Could NOT have done this without all of you.
