Yesterday was a big day on my blog. I got this notification from WordPress.
‘Your stats are booming! beetleypete is getting lots of traffic’.
So I checked the stats to see what was going on. I had posted a fiction story, and a nostalgia piece about schooldays. Both had received over 60 views, which was of course very pleasing. There was the usual smattering of posts that had been read once or twice, and a note that the Home Page/Archives had been read almost 80 times. That should have tallied up to something like 240 views in a day, very satisfying.
But by the time I was going to bed, the daily figure was just short of 400, and with a lot less ‘visitors’ than the previous day. That meant someone had read a lot of my posts, at least 100 or more. I checked the countries that had visited, and found that the UK was topping the list. So I came to the conclusion that someone in the British Isles had sat and read a huge number of my posts. They do not seem to have left any likes or comments, as all of those were from regular contributors.
This post is therefore by way of a ‘thank you’, to that unknown, and very busy reader. I really appreciate you taking your time to read so many posts on my blog. Please come back whenever you like.
Best wishes, Pete.
