The Century Mark – w00t!

Posted by Sean on June 26, 2008

Well, One Neat Thing a Day has hit a milestone. We had over 100 visitors today!

Visitors for June 26, 2008

These were the blog’s stats as of 5 p.m. PDT today, when the visitor counter resets. As you can see, One Neat Thing a Day had 103 visitors between 5 p.m. yesterday and 5 p.m. today.

We’ve already had a century day. But this time it’s special. That time, we played host to 116 visitors… but 97 of them had come for one post, which I’d published the day before the State of the Union address. Now, it’s spread all over the board:

As you can see, we were a gathering place for George Carlin, furry/anime and Mastodon fans today. But our top three posts weren’t even a fifth of our traffic. You decided that this little corner of the Web was also the place to come for Frankenstein, the ongoing debate about wheter Yoda is really just a geriatric Grover (yes), Orangina bukkake and turning cartoon sex kitten Jessica Rabbit into a real person, you sick sick puppy you.

In other words, we’re not a one-hit wonder. And we’ve already had 20 visitors as of 9:38 p.m. PDT, less than five hours after counter reset. I’d say the blogs is on its way to another hundred-visitor day, or close to it.

So thank you very much, everyone who’s visited and supported us, for pushing us past this milestone. It’s gratifying to know that so many of you are actually interested in what Shanoah and I have to say. Here’s hoping we’ll be around to thank you when we hit the millennium mark.
