June Blogging Statistics: Over 10,000 Page Views!
Since we are heading into the Independence Day weekend and lots of people are hopefully off relaxing outdoors somewhere instead of cruising the Internet, my posting is going to be very light through the holiday.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank my readers for making this blog such an overwhelming success in such a short period of time. The month of June was my first full month as a blogger, and just during that period The Downward Spiral received over 10,000 page views--averaging over 300 per day. When I started this project, I never expected to be doing nearly daily posts as I have been, and I can't promise that I will always be so prolific. After all, I usually have to edit each one about eight to ten times before I hit publish, and even then the occasional typo still manages to sneak through.
Nevertheless, the enthusiasm of my audience and all of the positive and thoughtful comments you have made both here and on the various discussion forums where I have linked these pieces has very much inspired me to work harder at it than I might have otherwise.
If you're in America, enjoy your holiday and if you are north of the border, Happy (belated) Canada Day! As for my friends in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere: cheers to you as well.
Now then, I hear a cold one in the refrigerator calling to me. Where's my bottle opener?
