Somebody wanted these, and we do keep track of ’em, but in the past have only reported them when the month’s end falls close to our usual weekend posts.

Previously, at the end of March, our totals were:

Year to 31 March 2014: 245,087

1 January  2013 to 31 March 2014: 871,954

In Calendar April, 2014, we recorded 71,228 hits, which makes a total of 316,315 year to date, or 943,182 hits since 1 January 2013.

We did not collect any statistics at all during the blog’s first year, from 1 January 2012 to 31 December 2013.

If the blog recieves hits at the April rate on average through the year, it will finish the year with 854,736 hits. If it receives hits at the first-third-of-the-year rate (1 January-30 April) it will end the year with 948,945 hits. Our goal is to break a million hits for the year.

The story about the five month old just ruined my week. Mind you this is not your fault but that of the perpetrator.


these totals may be excellent, or merely good

“very pretty…but can they fight?” ( Donald Sutherland, impersonating a General, & said while inspecting the troops in “The Dirty Dozen”). So

are these “unique” (fighting) hits or (prettified) total page hits?


Thanks weaponsman! I would love to see those stats in some kind of graphical presentation – but I will leave that up to you if you want to do that or not!
