Happy eight million hits to you,
Thanks for all the cool stuff you link to!
Pretty soon you will have to be like McDonald's and just say "Millions and millions" because, really, how big a difference is there between seventeen million and eighteen million? I hope I am still around to see your billionth hit. That would be fun, probably.

yea, and again, it will probably be the same 200 readers checking the blog 85,000 times each...

Congratulations on another amazing milestone.
and thank you for another mention...
The Blog Archipelago Revisited got a lot of extra hits, as a result, but it continues to prove the hypothesis that most websurfers would rather abseil into a volcano than leave a comment.
There are eleven comments... from seven people. one of those people was me.
Some of the same visitors come back repeatedly. I suppose that's all the feedback i'll get.
As for you?
well, I come back every day.
So as far as I'm concerned you're doing something right.
I don't want to post any requests, or grumble about things I don't like. I like the variety. The things I've never seen or thought of before. Historical, futuristic, whatever, I just hope you don't one day wake up thinking "That's it, no more blogging".
