In 2008, the first full year I hosted this site on my own hardware, I received 899,943 hits, and 105,841 unique visits.
My daily average for the year is 2,465 hits from 290 unique visitors.
My averages have dropped some, which may or may not have anything to do with the tweaking I’ve done on how the stats are reported. Or maybe I just have fewer visitors.
Still, almost 300 people a day read the words that I type. That’s a decent sized auditorium. If I could just get each of you to chip in a dime for every visit…

Ha, ha! Just kidding. I do this because I like doing it, not because I want to extract money from y’all. If I ever start putting ads on here, or start a membership drive, I’ll have to step up on the value of this site. For now, it’s just my little internet soapbox. Knowing you’re out there, reading, is more than enough.
Still, if you feel like chipping in, based on any entertainment value or knowledge you’ve gained, there’s a PayPal link down there in the left sidebar if you feel so inclined. If not, don’t worry about it. I rarely ask and I won’t beg.
Happy New Year! 2009 will be rockin’.
