Blog Stats, First Half of 2014

I hadn’t looked at the overall stats for 2014 in a while, but I peeked at them this morning, and was pleased to see that I am outperforming last year by more than a quarter of a million page views. Here is what the first half of 2014 looks like compared to the same period last year:

Page Views 2013-14

I was pretty surprised when I saw I’d had nearly 700,000 page views in the first 6 months of the year. At that pace, I’ll come close to 1.4 million by the end of the year, far surpassing any previous year. It also puts me on track for hitting 1 million pages views for the year sometime in September.

The unique visitors to the site appears to be outperforming last year nearly 2-to-1.

Unique Visitors

I am grateful to everyone who comes to visit and maybe finds something useful here. Seeing the numbers continue to improve is extremely gratifying. It is also amazing to thing that just a few years ago, I was averaging about 30 pages views per day. To go from 30 to over 3,000 per day–2 orders of magnitude–in just a few years seems incredible to me.
