In just over 18 months of its existence this blog has received a hundred thousand page views. It really amazes me that a lakh people have found something interesting and visit back on a regular basis.
My sincere thanks to those who spend a lot of their valuable time on this blog commenting and discussing matters that would directly or indirectly influence other readers. While most people just take benefits and never return once their task is done or the information they need is found, submitting a thank you would not take much effort. On the other hand there have been readers who actively post comments which on a few ocassions have resulted in mild flame wars (which I enjoy). Keep them coming folks. There are also instances where I have not replied to some requests via comments/email as many a times the answer would be in the previous comments. Please spare some time to read them before asking. That said if a comment really needed a reply I would definitely not miss out on that. Special thanks to Akismet for blocking spam and making my life easier.
My journey with WordPress has been wonderful. Matt and his team are doing a wonderful job to provide new features that makes WordPress the world’s best blogging software. For example WordPress released a bunch of features under a week on which I recently twittered.
Finally, no matter who you are and why you are here I extend my sincere thanks to you for visiting this blog and inspiring me to write more. Do keep coming back as I have much more interesting stuff in store for you. Incase you feel I should write about a topic feel free to contact me. For the time being its time to celebrate the six figured stats. *Drumrolls*
It feels great. Seriously. I’m really flattered that fifty thousand people would find anything here interesting enough and would like to visit on a fairly regular basis. You might think most of the contribution to the counter might go to the spammers, but I have faith in WordPress Stats that increment only on a human visitor
Stats are interesting to only some, while others might seem it as baseless, but to all those around I would like to share something. Over the past one year I have made over 75 posts in about 12 categories which have over 320 comments and not to forget over a 1200 spam blocked by Akismet. There have been a wide range of topics on which I have written over these days with a bulk of them being Test Drive reports and Ubuntu related stuff. The most popular post by an immense margin is the NFSMW Hamachi Lan Play Guide which makes up for a major part of the hits.
Finally, no matter who you are and why you are here I extend my sincere thanks to you for visiting this blog and inspiring me to write more. I enjoy your comments and e-mails, and I hope you find something useful or helpful in these posts. A huge thanks to WordPress which is hosting this blog and making it a search friendly site to provide easy access to readers across the world. Let me know if there is any particular topic you would like to find in this blog and I would try to include them. Cheers and best wishes. See you at 100,000
