Is the heyday of the blog over? Or did I just foul it up?
At one time Millard Fillmore’s bathtub got about 2,000 hits per day. In the last 16 months, that’s dwindled to just under 1,000 per day.
Still, at that rate, the Bathtub should overflow with the 5 millionth hit, sometime in the next 5 days. It’s funny, but if I counted spam we’d be over 8 million already. 100 spam comments for every real comment, approximately.
No wonder elections turn out so oddly.
For 5 million sincere hits, I thank you, readers, and thank you especially you faithful readers.
Would you tell your friends to come check it out?
- Phil Plait says the Sun converts 5 million tons of matter into energy every second
- 5 million kids in public schools are English language learners, NPR estimates (Hey, kids! come on over to MFB and check things out!)
- If I had a dollar for every hit, I could buy a 30-second ad on the 2017 Super Bowl, New York Times says
- 5 million is way more than the crowd at Trump’s inauguration, and probably quite a bit more than the actual crowd at the Cubs’ World Series victory parade
