100,000 and counting

May 26, 2008 by Dave Haynes

Just noticed the counter went past 100,000 this weekend.

It says hits but I think that means either page views or visitors. Whatever the case, I thought it was pretty cool when I went past 25 one day, back when I started.

The little Clustr Map thingdoodle that tracks inbound IP addresses suggest people have a look from just about everywhere, including Iran and lots of places with palm trees and coral. Than again, nothing in Alaska or Iceland, where you’d think people would have more time to waste on the Internet.

I don’t know if 100,000 is a big or small number in relative terms, but I’m glad if a few industry people learn a thing or two, and if my blabbering away acts as a useful bullshit filter for newcomers. There are many, many more companies in this space than when I started in Feb. 2006, but there actually seems to be less BS out there now despite that growth. I like to think me and a few other shit-disturbers have had a little role in that.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Congratulations, keep up the good work.

    Congrats, Dave – 100,000 is a nice milestone to hit. May you reach many more. As I’ve always said, yours is one of the least crappy digital signage blogs out there 😉

    In all seriousness, I can count on one hand the blogs worth reading, and yours easily makes the list.

    Dave, as one of your lackeys, please know that you inspire. Keep on the trail. Lots of people behind you!

    I have lackeys??? Cool!
