This morning my blog passed the 100,000 views milestone.
I had been hoping that I would reach the mark before my trip to Turkey.
I had been closely watching the numbers and looking at trends and averages to see if it would get there in time.
At the same time I was watching the mileage on my odometer, and Old Blue passed the 100K mark earlier this week.
Last night when I wrote my May Day post the counter was at 99,979. I knew that I would pass the 100K mark sometime this morning.
So, what does 100,000 views mean? Not a lot, it means that I have been blogging for a long time and made a lot of posts :-)
However, I have written a few posts that get quite a lot of views.
Another popular group of posts was my quest to find a replacement for Home Pride Wheat bread. I also followed the return to market of the various Hostess products. These posts generated 15-20% of my traffic.
Another popular post is about the Walls of Jericho. This is another post that gets almost daily views. I have also written many other posts about Israel and Palestine and altogether they easily account for more that 10% of the views.
At one time my post, Fireworks Memories, received visits almost every day. Then since September there have been only a few visits. Possibly because of the changes that some of the search engines made at about that time.
I had thought about adding in a map of where my visitors are from, but will wait and write another Fun with Flags post sometime soon. I have had visits from more than 150 countries.
It has taken almost exactly two years to reach the 100,000 mark, so I don’t expect to reach another milestone anytime soon.
So, join me for the next 100,000 as I embark on a vacation to Turkey.
