A Blog Around The Clock

A Cool Million

I know it’s an arbitrary number, but it still looks cool:


(Apparently, the 1000000th and the 1000001st visitors arrived simultaneously). Back when I just started I never thought this was even possible.

The millionth visitor came here from Oakland, California, entered the site at this post, and made 17 pageviews in 6 minutes 4 seconds.

    Wow; that is so cool. I can’t decide if you should give 1,000,000 (and of course 1,000,001) a prize or if we should all give you one.

    I could not ID. I don’t think it is a regular reader. Probably came in via search.

    Thank you all. Still, even if I add the traffic on my old three blogs (adding up, right now, to 571,750), I still cannot beat Shakesville which hit four million yesterday.
