One million hits!

August 4, 2012 in Best Of, Blogging, On Writing by pacejmiller

Well, it’s more like 1,069,815 hits (as at the time of this post), but I’ve been busy lately with the baby, work, the Olympics and becoming an uncle (congrats, sis!).

Yep, this blog has finally broken through the 1 million hit barrier (including the hits from its earlier incarnation at wordpress.com). Not bad for a website that began three years ago a suggestion for me to develop a place to write and to kill time.

If I had stayed at wordpress.com, I definitely would have gotten to 1 million much earlier, but the number of daily hits this blog received went down by about 30%-50% after I switched to my own domain at the beginning of last year. I don’t regret it though because I prefer the way it looks now, and I enjoy the freedom to be able to do what I want with it. Hits

Anyway, I’m still around, reading books, watching movies, checking out restaurants and trying to find time to write (I’m struggling with the last one, evidently). I just don’t have as much time as I used to, and I suppose priorities are changing. Makes me wish I didn’t take all my free time for granted in the past.

I’ve still got bucket loads of great stuff waiting to be written. I just need the time and motivation to write it!

I know I say this a lot, but I really mean it this time. Stay tuned.
