I haven't been paying much attention to my sitemeter recently, and yesterday I passed a milestone almost without noticing it. At 2:07pm EST yesterday, the AL received its 100,000th hit, and about the 184,000th page view. It was very exciting. I had an extra martini to celebrate. I put in the sitemeter about 15 months ago, and I think 100,000 hits isn't bad for 15 months. It's not like I'm a commercial blogger or a hustler trying to make a professional reputation for myself.
To compare with last year about this time, I went back and checked, and last July I had 4,030 hits and 8,730 page views. This past July I had 11,495 hits and 20,443 page views, so the cult of the AL is growing.
Anyway, thanks to you all for reading.
