overdrive Welcome to my blog. Here, you may read all of my reviews. That will take a good deal of time, as I have penned quite a large number of them. I advise you to start now. And don't forget, constantly offer me praise concerning how great I am at doing what I do!

Title: Hits equal 300K

Just another accomplishment on my part. This time getting my hits over the 300,000 mark. And I'm one hit shy of having 100 reviews with 1,000+ hits each.

It's about time there was a reason to have a holiday on the first Monday in September in the U.S.!

I remember when I hit both those landmarks. Two or three years ago!

Bwahahaha!

I wonder if OD will ever make a post like this without EmP going "HAR I AM STILL AHEAD OF YOU"

What if I make posts like this about every single thing I do? It'd have to get tiresome after a while to one-up them when they entail things like "301,550 HITS!!!", "301,600 HITS!!!!", "301,625 HITS!!!!!!!" and I make roughly a dozen of them per day.

This reminds me: Jason, would it be possible to have a Page Views counter in addition to a Hits counter for reviews?

I'm not sure I understand the question, Will. The site keeps track of how many hits there are for reviews (which is page views) and it keeps track of how many times your blog is viewed. What are you asking me to add?

Short answer: Hits and Page Views are not the same thing.

Long answer:

Yes, the counter for reviews does and always has tracked page views, not individual visitors. Multiple views from the same person count as multiple hits. The site does not install a cookie when you view a review, nor track it elsewise. :-)

Congrats Rob. Not as big of an announcement as Joe having a kid, but VERY CLOSE.
