Milestone: Quarter Million


Wednesday 05 November, 2014 by Uncle Spike

Well, well, well… after just over a year of sticking to daily posting my varied offerings, the jolly old ‘hits’ or ‘page view’ counter has topped the 250,000 milestone, or “quarter of a million”, which sounds rather nicer I reckon 🙂

It’s been a journey of learning, errors, flops and successes; a real mixed bag of ups and not-so-ups, a similar experience I’m sure to most amateur bloggers running varied topic sites such as this.

I’m the first to acknowledge that the page view stats seem a bit dodgy at best, but overall one has to trust somewhere along the line that the stats are generally meaningful, and certainly the traffic figures have inspired me to publish some 1,125 posts since June last year.

However, I also acknowledge that a fair chunk of that 250k may well be first time ‘lookers’, and that the better measure to take note in terms of the blog’s success would be follower numbers rather than page views. So for me, as much as I celebrate this quarter million milestone today, it’s the 2000 follower target that I’m keeping my beady eye out for; perhaps that’ll be in reach by spring next year…. who knows.

Thank you to everyone for supporting me in this mid-life blogging venture that seems to have become my primary hobby 🙂

With very best regards from Türkiye,
