Milestone! Two million views

August 3, 2012

Sometime between 5pm 2 August 2012 (my time) and 7am 3 August 2012, this blog hit two million views!

In September 2011, this blog cracked the one million views mark since I started blogging in 2008. As I said when the total views passed half a million sometime in 2010, I can’t even comprehend that number.

So to have a further one million views in less than 12 months is mind-boggling! I must be doing something right ;-)

My weekday average number of views is between 4000 and 5000, and my monthly average is more than 100,000 views. I’ll do a full analysis at the end of this year, as I have done in previous years (see below for links).

However, despite the number of views and the overwhelmingly positive comments (‘OMG! You saved my LIFE!’), I make no more than ‘pin money’ from the donate button at the end of many posts (https://cybertext.wordpress.com/2011/05/11/if-only/) and I pay WordPress to NOT have random ads on this blog (my choice).

I mainly write this blog for me — I can’t possibly remember all the things I learn, so when I write instructions they are primarily to backup my brain ;-) Think of this blog as a dumping ground for all those random bits and pieces I learn each day. And yes, I definitely use my own blog to ‘remember’ how to do something I may have only done once or twice before.

The fact that others (all two million others!) find it useful too, is humbling.
