Ten thousand hits? Whoa!

When I started this blog in July 2005 it had two main purposes – to share recipes with friends who asked for them, and to be my ‘recipe book in cyberspace’. It has performed both those tasks admirably, but has grown into something else too … a resource for people I don’t know! A couple of years ago I posted a recipe for wattalapam and, quite unexpectedly, that meant I started getting heaps of hits. I guess the word ‘heaps’ is relative – it has taken over seven years for the blog to reach ten thousand hits, and some blogs get that many daily or even hourly – but I was pretty excited to see we’d clicked over into five figures this week.
Here are some stats for nerds like me who enjoy ‘em:

My eight most popular posts – together, these make up about
50% of the all-time hits on the blog.

The ten countries where most of the traffic has come from. OK, so lots of the Australian hits are probably from me (it is my recipe book, after all) but it is fun to see all the others!

I’d like to thank Jo Savill and Walter Mason for linking to my blog from their much more illustrious blogs, and I’d like to thank Google for driving so many wattalapam seekers my way, and I’d like to thank YOU for reading this now. Cheers.
