Sometime early this morning this blog had its 10,000th counted "hit." It is a milestone of sorts for a blog that has been running for a year and a few days. I'm glad to know that there are some people who find this stuff interesting enough to come back and read more.
It has been an eye-opening experience for me to review my visitor logs. Some of the articles in which I thought I invested myself the most (yes, the ones that I told myself would burn up the internet) had rather little interest for my readers. Other articles I've posted with very little investment of thought or conscious creativity have turned out to be those that keep getting viewed many months after they were written.
It also has been intriguing to notice how geographically far away some readers are from a blog that has an unashamed interest in things that are very local.
I don't know what all this means, but thank you for reading.
