August stats

I'm just back from an out-of-town trip and still feeling a bit mellow, so regular blogging will resume tomorrow. Meantime, I had about 27,000 hits in August, making it by far my best month yet. Having a full month of search engine hits among my Sitemeter-counted stats was a big part of that, but some big referrals from Atrios, Calpundit, Kos and Tom Spencer also helped.

I received the 100,000th Sitemeter hit for this site in August, which thanks to the search engine referrals was well ahead of projections. Filtering all that out, it feels like I have about 400-500 daily human visitors, which just amazes me. Thank you all very much for coming by and especially for coming back.

High referrers are beneath the More link for those who might be interested.
