Halfway there!


Sometime yesterday, while I was in clinic, my Sitemeter hit 500,000 visits!

Let’s see, it took one year, five months, and two days to reach that level. When I started my blog I never imagined it would reach 100,000 visits, much less a half a million. (Of course, it takes PZ a little more than a month to rack up that many visits, which keeps me humble–at least as humble as a surgeon can be.) In any case, thanks to my readers who like what I’m laying down and the bloggers who discovered me early on and gave my humble blog a boost.

How long to a million? Let’s find out.

    This post startled the heck out of me, because Halfway There is the name of my own blog.

    Congratulations on reaching the half million mark.

    … as humble as a surgeon can be…

    So you only see yourself as a minor diety at this time? Congratulations.

    Err…I meant congratulations on getting to 500K visits, not on getting your ego downsized.

    So, Zeno, do you think when your namesake was a kid, he rode on the back of the chariot saying “Are we halfway there yet?”

    BronzeDog: I’m sure of it. And he said it infinitely often.

    Congrats, Orac! May the next 5.e+5 come in a small fraction of the time for the first.

    If I ever need to get surgery done in your area, I’ll… well, I’ll probably go to whoever my HMO will pay for. I will be wanting to consult you, however…
