One million and counting

In all the excitement of starting the Lost Worlds (remember to update your blogrolls folks!), the Musings has still been ticking over and yesterday rolled over one million hits. It’s taken a fair while, but it’s got there. Of course the ‘real’ total for the Musings should be rather higher since the old Version 1 of this blog has still been accruing hits over the years and has tens of thousands of recorded visitors, but it’s still nice to see the counter tick over on here too.

Not that it’s a bad score at all, but it’s taken years (literally) or writing to build up this audience and it’s almost a shame that I’ve managed to eclipse myself so quickly. My all time top day on here is just over 4000 reads, and the all-time record for a post is a massive 33 000 (though obviously accumulated over a good period of time). Now naturally I’m writing for a broader audience on the Guardian and it’s a big site with a lot of traffic, but in the half dozen posts I’ve put up, I’ve already got several posts with tens of thousands of hits. In short, I’ve eclipsed over 5 years of blogging achievements in just a few weeks. Wow.

Still, as promised the Musings isn’t shutting down and I do have some more posts in the works on here including more art interviews and covering a paper of mine due out next week. Even so, it’s hard not to feel that despite the record here, I’ve rather moved onwards and upwards. But I’m proud of this and I hope this will continue to grow, if slowly and more Musings are coming.

    Congrats, both on the 1 million mark here as on the Lost Worlds. I’ll start paying more attention to that one as well.
