Saturday 26 October, 2013 by Uncle Spike
Well, what a daft old two weeks that was! For while your Uncle Spike has been toddling around the farm attending to some autumnal chores, and proof-reading lots of grown-up academic stuff, the blog went bonkers – thanks to you guys!
Mightily impressed was I just now to see the stats hit what I would term as a rather scrumptious milestone in my book. Now that’s not to say ‘hit’ as in break yer knuckles, or a ‘fender-bender’ moment perhaps, but shall we say a milestone was ‘significantly bumped into’ – there, less dramatic all round, eh?
So what am I harping on about, simple.. the page views or ‘hits’ have put on a bit of spurt to say the least, with the latest tally along the lines of that rather fine fettled figure… 15,000 (up a whopping 50% in 2 weeks).
Maybe we should start a campaign to ask that WordPress change ‘hits’ to smackers’ on the stats page. A fellow blogger suggested that term to me less than an hour ago as an alternative to ‘hits’ – Uncle Spike agrees 🙂 By the way, her blog might be quite new, but In touch with Emma is one I’d recommend.
Plus out there in bloggy-land, there now appears to be 390 folk who ‘follow’ Clan Spike (that’s up 30% in 2 weeks). But if one were to ask where they are following me to, I haven’t the foggiest 🙂
Describing this momentous double occasion as “Cool” doesn’t quite do it justice. I guess I need to confer with Cousin Spike Jnr for a more street-cred variant!
