Thanks for the Hits: November 2008 Traffic Numbers and Stuff

As I enter into December, 2008, I feel much like I did in December, 2007: in pain. Yep, no relief yet for my messed up back, but at least I’m learning when the pain will hit (i.e. when I stand up).

But enough about me. Let’s talk about my site…

Almost to 1000 Posts!

As of this article, I’ve posted 983 times at Technically, I’ve posted more, but deleted some articles with affiliate links that were no longer relevant. And probably 940-950 of those articles were from me directly (not guest posts). In 29 months of this site, I’ve posted on average 34 times each month. If you wanted to see more numbers, check out my archives page.

I’ll write more when I actually hit 1000 articles.
