If you go to the “Random” tab at the top, you’ll find a link on the page that will select a random article for you to read. I tried it a few times this morning and was surprised by some of the subjects that we’d covered and then forgotten about.
Pardon the introspection folks, but the last time we updated the “Random” tab at the top we had “over 1200” articles in the archives. Now we have over 2300 articles just waiting to be remembered or discovered.
It is way too early to for me to do the math, but maybe somebody can work out how many articles the BFP team has posted per day since January of 2006 when we started.
Visitor Number Three Million Coming Soon
Oh, it looks like we will welcome our three millionth visitor sometime in June.
I know many other big blogs in America and Europe do those visitor numbers every month – (heck, Drudge Report does a million a day) – but three million visitors in 26 months doesn’t seem too bad to us for a little blog on a little rock in the ocean, especially considering that it took a while for the numbers to ramp up. Even after our third month we were only seeing 100 visitors a day, but then it sort of exploded and the growth went exponential for a while. We’re still growing, albeit at a slower rate, but at a certain point we must reach a saturation level because our primary audience (and this rock) is only so large!
According to the stats, we currently have The Nation News beat all to pieces with daily visitors. Barbados Free Press remains the most popular Barbados website of any kind.
A shame we can’t turn those numbers into some cash, but that would be a bad choice!
So try a few random articles from the archives and you might find a few Gems. (GEMS, get it?) 😉
Sorry… that’s the best I can do for humour on a sleepy Sunday morning.
Now I have to go because it is my turn to make breakfast for my wonderful woman and children.
Thank you Lord for this day.
