Another milestone in the history of this blog has been reached with the attainment sometime today of 100,000 hits – according to WordPress’ hit counter, anyway. Sitemeter is a bit more generous, logging about 72,600 hits plus the 36,600 hits I had before getting the Sitemeter account. Either way, it’s a barrier that seemed unattainable in late […]
