over one million served!

reached one million page views here on the blog today! woo-hoo! (^_^)

i know that’s probably roughly the number of hits heartiste gets on an average weekend (i mean page views — PAGE VIEWS! — always with your minds in the gutter, you people! (~_^) ), but hey — i don’t write much about sex and drugs and rock ‘n’ roll (maybe i should start…)!

this is page views, mind you, and not the number of unique visitors. for all i know, there could be just one of you out there constantly refreshing your browser. (~_^) wordpress tells me that this figure does not include search engine bots either — but, again, you could all be robots for all i know. and maybe i’m a brain in a vat. hmmmm….?

in any case, thanks for hanging around on my goofy blog here! (^_^) and thanks so much for all the constructive and informative comments! (^_^) over one million served and counting…!

  1. Sex and drugs and rock-and-roll: why dilute the pleasures of sex with those noxious habits?

  2. @luke – “That is good news. It means you are having an influence.”

    i’m pretty sure that at least half of those views are from incoming links dropped by you in various discussion threads around the internet — so, THANKS! (^_^)

  3. Congratulations hbd chick. I’ve very much enjoyed reading your site over the last 10 months or so. I can’t remember how I stumbled across you, but very glad I did. You clearly put a lot of hard work into it. While your posts here are in support of a serious hypothesis, and are part of a broader discussion, they all make for great reading in themselves. I have learned a lot from reading them. I originally became interested in hbd from more of an archaeological and anthropological perspective and appreciate both scientific and historical analysis, hence why I enjoy reading both yours and Jayman’s blogs.

  5. I’m one of those new visitors who hopefully helped bump that number going through many back pages. I don’t know how Pocket works out with page view however? I often just go on a page and click “Save to Pocket” to read multiple posts of interest on my tablet.

    Does each page I save to Pocket count as a page view? Not sure.

    well, i’m glad you did, too, ’cause i’ve learned a lot from you! i’m still contemplating that one link/article you dropped here about the density of the road network in the south of england in the medieval period. neat! thanks, again! (^_^)

    you’re welcome! and thanks so much for referring to my ramblings as “insights” rather than “the mad ravings of a lunatic.” (~_^)
