100,000 on 12/07/07

This blog hit its 100,000th viewer around noon EST today. I know it doesn’t compare to other ultra-popular blogs that get millions of hits A MONTH (or even in a day). But for something that I work on a few minutes a day, 100,000 hits since last March ain’t too shabby.
My peak month (with 17,827 hits) was last August, when several of my Vista Annoyances posts appeared on the front page of StumbleOn. My most popular post ever is ironically one of my geekiest posts ever, Windows Vista Annoyance #3: file / folder sharing between computers on a network. It’s regularly on the top of my DAILY list of most-viewed blog posts, mostly because of Google searches, partially because of Stumbleon, and partially because computer shops apparently use this when explaining to customers how to make their computers work nicely with each other across networks.
Since August, I’ve been averaging 13,000 – 14,000 hits a month. When I write a post on a daily basis, I average about 400-500 hits a day. But some weeks, I only write one or two blog posts — and my hits go down to around 300-400 a day.
Thanks, faithful readers. It’s folks like you that makes it worthwhile for me to keep bloggin’. Stick around, willya?
