Fr Stephen Langridge of Southwark Vocations made the amusing observation to me recently that everyone knows exactly how many friends they have on Facebook. They don't admit it but say "Oh... I don't know, roughly 83, I think".
I replied that it was rather like that with bloggers. If you ask them how many visitors they get, they say "Oh... not sure, couldn't tell you exactly.. probably about 1108 a day or something like that."
A couple of days ago, without paying any attention to statistics or anything like that, you understand, I realised that we would hit the ¼ million mark some time today. In fact the 250,000th visitor dropped by just after lunchtime. Thank you all for your interest!
And yes - the daily average is 1108 visitors and 2253 page views at the moment. So do feel free to send review copies of books ...
