When I checked into ‘Stop & Wander’ this morning, I noticed that my visitor count read 100,010 hits.
Dude, that’s a lot of weebles. Given, I started this blog up on June 16th, ’07 so it took about a year and 10 months to get all those zeroes. But it averages out to about 50,000 per year.
That’s sort of a hard integer to grasp.
So here’s a little context:
14,870,000 people visited Disneyland in 2007, so Stop & Wander was 1/297th as popular as Disneyland that year.
lol cats site: I Can Has Cheezburger received 1,500,000 hits a day at the height of its blog popularity in 2007. So- Stop & Wander was
1/30th of one/365th times as popular as I Can Has Cheezburger, – *blinks*
Approximately 400,000 people are estimated to have attended Woodstock in 1969. So Stop & Wander had 1/8th as many annual visitors as the three day rock concert, which equals out to… on a daily, er- wait. No. *holds head* Okay, if you times it by three, and factor the off- season-… Urgh. The math just got too complicated, but…
basically S&W compares more favorably to hippy rock than it does to grammatically tragic and trussed-up kitty-cats.
All that information sort of reinforces how relative the nature of an impressive-assed number really is. But mostly I want to thank the repeat visitors, known in local slang as ‘weeble-kind’. You’ve made me feel consistently that this blog was worth the effort of writing each day, and that is an incomparable kindness.
