One Million Served!

Million_served Since opening the doors of this blog on February 5, 2004, I had over one million visitors! Here are Grow-a-Brain's current statistics as reported by Typepad a couple of hours ago:

Total number of hits: 1,000,955
Average per day: 2394.65
Today: 12,740
In the last hour: 333
This week: 34,746

Thanks for everybody who visits. My next goal is to become like the mad Maddox, and have 100 million hits within the next few years. Won’t you tell everybody you know about Grow-a-Brain? Write your congress-person, if you have one. Nominate this blog to all kinds of prizes. Help me find a new girlfriend! I need traffic! Thank you!

So here is a little poem by Lawrence Ferlinghetti for you - The World Is a Beautiful Place:

The world is a beautiful place
to be born into
if you don't mind happiness
not always being
so very much fun
if you don't mind a touch of hell
now and then
just when everything is fine
because even in heaven
they don't sing
all the time

The world is a beautiful place
to be born into
if you don't mind some people dying
all the time
or maybe only starving
some of the time
which isn't half bad
if it isn't you...

Also, I’ve done it before, and here it is again: Grow-a-Brain in 1998. (With The Fulifier, which turns around any website three thousand times uglier than it was before)

Kudos, that's hella' lot of hits. I'm curious what percentage of those hits turned into comments?

Posted by: Scaramouche at Mar 30, 2005 8:12:08 AM

I had less than 1,000 comments in all this time, which means that only one in a thousand readers bother to stop and say anything. So this blog is basically a one-man job

Great job! I know I enjoy your site, and check back regularly (um...maybe 25 of those 1,000,000 hits?). I set up a link to this site, and as my traffic grows, I hope it reflects positively on yours. Take care, Dennis

Posted by: Dennis at Mar 30, 2005 9:27:37 AM


Your blog deserves the attention. It's the most persistent and reliable around. And always fun!
Thanks, Hanan, for your effort and care!
Keep it up!!!!

For some reason -- which is all my problem -- I find it hard to come up with the quality of comments this blog deserves. But I am a faithful reader and have learned much.

Posted by: Harry at Mar 30, 2005 9:51:05 AM

Mazel Tov! If I wrote a comment every time I enjoyed one of your links, I'd be dead because I'd be typing little comments all day instead of eating and sleeping. ;-) Keep up the great work!

Way cool dude. I pound the pavement for ya everyday. Wouldn't be neat if there was a tracking mechanism for comments?

Daily exposure to Grow-a-Brain has caused a cumulative increase of 23cc to my brain mass so far. I think I have to shop around for a new skull soon. Thanks a lot, Hanan!
