A quick shout out to everyone who contributes to or links to this joint. I knew we'd double our pageviews a few months ago. I'm glad to see it come to fruition.
Good job and thanks for making this a great hangout.

Couldn't agree more. In the decade plus that we've been doing this site, I've contemplated walking away a number of times... but the ramping up of our traffic over the last couple of years - and this year specifically - makes it all worthwhile.

Thanks to everyone who contributes, reads, and references the log!

In case anyone's wondering what the hell we're talking about, here are the numbers since we started tracking pageviews:

2011 [2,381,467]
2010 [1,207,264]
2009 [952,375]
2008 [672,291]
2007 [936,234]
2006 [540,726]
2005 [644,151]
2004 [571,074]
2003 [272,023]
2002 [115,180]

Pretty steady rise from the start, minus a couple of bumps - 2008 was the year I wrote and implemented v3 (the current version of the site), we lost a lot of SEO juice when that happened because I didn't immediately put rewrite rules into place on the server to cover the URL format change. That got fixed in early 2009. For those of you that don't want to do the math, we'll have a cumulative total pages served at just over 8.3 million by the end of the year, going back to 2002 when the site moved from a Blogger 1-sheet to postNuke.

Couldn'ta done it without you and the rest of the staff, amigo. Much respect and thanks! I wish I could say there was a big pile of ad loot to split up with everyone, but I think the adsense balance is about 17 bucks, the e-cig express balance is about 14 bucks, and amazon is like a dollafiddy. Not enough to even cash out at any of 'em. In imaginary dave world, though - you guys all get a 50% raise and frozen ham!

Go ham! Ain't nothing like pig.

BTW, still on the rise. 2.5 million hits for all of last year and likely to beat 2 million hits by the end of June.

Lovin' the traffic, wish we had more people commenting though!

Be careful for what you wish. You'll get lots of spam and adverts and cussin and proselytizing.
And then you'll choose to moderate all comments (or delegate to staff).
And then traffic will decrease.

See? The natural order of things.

We used to have a huge spam problem, hence the captcha-type security code and rate limit on anonymous comments.

Well, we're about 5k pageviews from passing last year's total count, and we average about 5400 a day, so that makes Friday the 14th D-Day! It's all gravy from here on out!

Aw f0o0o0ok. We beat last year as well.

Dave, I am trying my best to drag this joint down but you keep fighting me. Tai Kwan Do? MMA? Just how do you kick my ass so hard?

I like to think of it, as Vyvyan so succinctly put it, as a delicate blend of psychology and extreme violence.

And yet, I notice a new annual record in pageviews again, this time nearly four months togo.

Yeah, it's been a booming year for us traffic-wise. Of course, I credit the staff for our success - we've had some really good stuff posted this year!

And your posts have not exactly been chopped liver. I still lift several from here and post elsewhere.

Awesome! I post stuff here because I think more people should see it. If that in turn spreads beyond our meager borders, then it validates my opinion and gives me warm fuzzies of participation in the vast webring of link blogs.

Holy crap, it just occurred to me to look at the final total for last year's pageviews, we hit like 5.5 million for 2016.

Amazing. Thank you guys for helping make this place that busy, your contributions to the site are vital and are greatly appreciated!
