I remember when I joined back in October and had my first 3,000 hit day. I was beside myself that so many people gave two shits what I had to say about anything. I was ready to hang that one up as a trophy, sure that it would never happen again.
Ditto with my first 4,000 hit day shortly thereafter.
Ditto for 5,000.
Now, nine months later, I can’t remember the last time I had a 3,000 hit day, even on the slowest days when I don’t post anything. Of course, the hits aren’t at all why I do any of the work/writing that I do. But the growth in traffic has been a very flattering surprise. I love the little nerdtastic godless community here and I love being on Freethoughtblogs. I’m lucky to share this stage with some real luminaries and to have the opportunity to learn from the other writers as well as the commentariat.
