At 4.37pm today, the Hermeneutic of Continuity received its one millionth visit. Here is a screenshot from Site Meter:
Thank you all very much for reading what I write. I started this blog on something of a whim and thought that the title "The Hermeneutic of Continuity" would be an amusingly arcane indication of the line I wanted to take. The blog rapidly became an apostolate and, as I commented once, something on which I have to examine my conscience.
The stats depend on certain assumptions made by the hit counter that is used. I'm happy to use Site Meter because it is quite commonly used in the blogosphere. Bloggers tend to value the "Visit" count because most people only go to one page - the "hit count" for the blog (page views) is now 1,854,440. The average per day is currently 1812 visits or 3259 page views.
On Saturday 7 February, there will be a Missa Cantata at Blackfen (or Solemn High Mass if there are a couple of other clerics available) at 10.30am. Afterwards there will be a little party in the Hall to celebrate the million visits. All of you are most welcome. If you are coming, it would be helpful if you could send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Million party" in the subject line; but if you forget or are free at the last minute, come anyway.
