100 000

This blog had its 100,000th visitor this morning. Its growth rate continues to pleasantly surprise me. I started in March 2004, and took till mid-December to reach 10k. Late February 2005 saw the 20,000th visitor. Then 50k was passed in mid-July. And all that's been doubled in just five more months. I'm currently averaging over 400 hits per day (or 700+ page views), though it fluctuates a bit depending on incoming links. It'd be neat to see that average raised over 500 next year, though I don't expect to get much further than that, given my fairly narrow target audience.

Visitor stats are fairly trivial in any case. A more interesting measure would be number and quality of comments and replies, which are more difficult to track. But my general impression is that these have continued to improve also, with a handful of (semi-) regular readers making the bulk of the contributions. My thanks go out to them. (You know who you are.)

But enough navel-gazing. Back to the philosophy...



  1. Well, I'll be the first to congratulate you, Richard. Congratulations!

  2. Congratulations! Personally, I find it amazing. I mean, it isn't like thinking is a popular pastime these days.

  3. I'm certainly impressed by the quality of the comments on your blog.

  4. Well done, Richard. I'm certainly always impressed by this blog when I get the time to come here. I don't know much about Philosophy, mind...
