Milestone: One Million Views

Yesterday, this blog passed 1 million views. I switched to WordPress in 2010. Prior to that, I blogged on LiveJournal, going back to 2005. Since switching to WordPress, I have now accrued 1 million views. It is kind of hard to believe:

One Million

Even harder to believe is how quickly (relatively speaking) the blog has grown. Here are the annual totals from 2010 to the present. Keep in mind that the total for 2013 is for less than half the year:

Million in Years

I am on track to have more than 1 million views in 2013 alone, more than doubling last year. This does not count people who read the blog via RSS, which probably adds another half million views or so.

Let me just take a moment to say thanks for visiting. This blog is by no means an overnight success, nor is it in the same category as some of the bigger blogs out there. But I think it is a success, and I have all of my readers to thank for that.

Thank you.
