On 24th October 2005 we added a 'hit counter' to the blog to see how many people actually visit. We never really had high hopes but have been amazed to see that in slightly under two years we've had ten thousand hits on the blog which is quite amazing. Of those visits to our blog, 62% are 'unique hits' which means that the visitor has not been to the site before, whilst the other 38% are returning or regular visitors.
At last we have a tangible answer to the question of whether or not we're wasting our time with the blog? The answer is clearly no, we're not wasting our time so we'll persist for a while longer.
For the anoraks out there, yes we can even find out how you came to visit the blog and which server you were using to visit us. Cool!
