100,000 Hits

I have good reason to blow my own trumpet because my counter tells me that I've achieved 100,000 hits.

On the other hand, my joy is dampened by the fact that my biggest single hit is Christian Nudist Convocation. It was a story I thought quirky enough to deserve attention.
It certainly isn't my proudest moment or the article I'd like to be remembered by.
Still, I can compare myself to the very interesting blog titled Sexuality in the Arts, which has over 1 million hits. No doubt the title and the word "sexuality" might have something to do with the wild success of the blog. In fact the author is a very serious and interesting person who shows depth of insight and knowledge that I find fascinating.
This makes me wonder about how many people who are drawn to my blog by "Christian Nudist Convocation" take the time to explore other articles. Am I kidding myself her or what?

I know that my own personal attention span is very limited and if I do visit a blog because that person has commented on mine, I will peruse their site but really only skim the surface.

Time is limited and there's so much to explore. I know the limitations of the medium and have deliberately condensed my ideas as much as possible. Sometimes I might come across as trivial or superficial but let me tell you, there's a lot of thought in my pithy short sentences.

Oh well, thanks for the comments because they are what keep me going.

Do you have dreams of making blogging into a "commercial" enterprise?

I think you do a wonderful job of being concise. I have never had the notion you were superficial although I frequently discover from reading your blog that I am.

Do number of hits received have anything to do with that dream?

Lexcen said...

FJ, no I'm just a dreamer ;)
