1000th Visitor

The Aspidistra got its 1000th visitor yesterday. I’m quite pleased, although this number must be taken with a couple heaping spoonfuls of salt. First, I didn’t put my sitemeter counter up right away and I also lost a week when I was updating the layout. Second, and more importantly, like the self-googling guy that I am, I check my blog a lot and rack up visits that way. I have this crazy hope that someday I’ll get enough traffic that my visits will be overwhelmed by hits from others, but until then I just have to live with the knowledge that my count is noticeably inflated.

Still, this is the best way to count, so I’ll happily take number 1000. I’m also happy to report that this wasn’t a webcrawler bot. This was a person brought here from a google search for “religious idiots.” Here's the relevant post. I take some pride in the fact that that term brought them here. I’m no friend of religion. Expand the post for the sitemeter data.

Here’s a link to the info. Or just read the excerpt below. They didn't stay long, but what the hey. I'll take what I can get.

not to dampen the mood but he/she only stayed for 0 seconds. guess he/she was hoping to see some porn related to religious idiots.

i should get that sitebot thing, just in case someone that isn't you or the other guy ever visits.
