My StatsCounter is the free and reliable web tracker that counts the number of hits received by my blog and gives me an idea of where my visitors come from.
A few minutes ago, my counter reached 17,000 hits, with the #17,000 being a visitor from Jihomoravsky Kraj, Brno, Czech Republic. The visitor was interested in this post.
It took 18 months for my blog to reach my first 10,000 hits. In the 6 months since this, my counter registered 7,000. That means that traffic in my blog has much increased over the last few months but it is still a very small blog (to understand this size of order take for example Normblog, which announced some 8 months ago that it had reached the 3,000,000 hits milestone since July 2003!).
There is an average of 45 visitors per day.
There are approximately 15-20 regular visitors and the rest get here from googling different subjects.
My most popular blogpost has been this one.
I need to work more creatively on my blog but I've been a little tired, and somewhat intellectually dehydrated lately. I also have to prepare for two discussion courses weekly, which takes away some of the stamina that would otherwise go into my blog.
