So that’s it, half a million page views in the bag!
I stopped being obsessive over blog stats moons ago. To be honest, I don’t hold much belief in their accuracy either when, on numerous occasions, you’ll suddenly see exactly 300 views pop up in two mins from a country rarely on your stats radar. And then of course there are non registering views, such as WP Reader, whereby the post url is never accessed, and so zero page views generated.
However, saying all that, it’s a humbling turn of events, sitting back and seeing a creation go from zero to 500k. That was always my target too when I first started out. Like everything in life, one tries to do each task justice; to give it your best, and to prove to yourself that you can do something you never thought possible. So I guess I’ve ticked that one….
So what’s next? Well, as regulars will no doubt have seen, over the past six months life has been hectic and all-consuming for us; and so much so, that my spare time is in the negative on most days. Of course, the downside impact has seen a huge hit on the time I have to spare to blog. It’s a sad turn of events, but such is life. My aim is to keep on going with photo-blogging at least, and hope we’ll turn a corner at some point in the future where my trusty pen (keyboard) sees more literary action after such a long hiatus.
Watch this space I guess….
But enough about me, this post has one simple message I want to get across, and that is to say a simple, honest and straight-up “thank you” to all you guys out there for your continued support. After all, that’s why we blog if we are honest, eh?
