Growth in hits at the blog continued in September, though not at the unsustainable rates of previous months. Instead of a growth rate of nearly 100%, the growth rate came in at about 12%.
Total hits for the month: 20,025.
One notable development for the month. I track the number of visitors to the site each month, and cumulatively (so if you visit once during the month or a thousand times during the month, you get counted as one visitor for the month). The number went from about 1000 in previous months to 2493 in September. This shows, not surprisingly, that with the start of school, more people are visiting, but the visitors are not viewing the site as often as during the summer. Seems some people have some duties during the school year that they don’t have in the summer…
