10,000 Hits Already !! January 9, 2008Posted by Richard Foote in Oracle Blog, Richard's Musings.
I’ve just noticed that the hits counter has just reached 10,000 hits.
I’m quite excited as I actually saw it displaying the 10000, being one of those weird people who would drive around the block a couple of times just to see the mileometer reading in the car reach some “special” number. I screamed with frustration once when I just missed 12345 scroll past, 123456 just seemed such a long way away ….
I must admit I had absolutely no idea how many people would read this Blog when I started it almost a month ago. Starting a Blog was something that was mentioned and suggested to me a few times when I attended and presented at the Unconference at Oracle OpenWorld last year.
Now I must admit, I don’t really know whether 10,000 visits in less than a month, including the Christmas Holidays, is actually a lot or not, but if someone asked me a month ago how long I thought it would take me to reach 10,000 hits, I would have guessed (and hoped somewhat) in 6 months or so. So it’s certainly a lot more hits than I ever thought I would get at this early stage.
So to have generated so much interest, so many comments, there’s over 150 although lots are mine I know :) and so many emails is really really, umm what’s the right word, I guess “nice”.
So thank you all for your interest and involvement !!
If someone can give me a bit of warning just before 20,000 is reached, I would appreciate it !!
