December traffic report

December was my busiest month ever, with over 35,000 hits on the Sitemeter counter, thanks to several high-profile links to my Worst Movies list and my interview with Richard Morrison. Had there not been the usual lull for Christmas and New Year's, I would've easily topped 40,000. I seem to get about 1000 hits per day now, though admittedly a lot of that is search engine results. Still, I'm happy with the site's growth, and I look forward to another year of it. As always, I thank everyone for reading. Good feedback really makes a difference, and I appreciate all of the good feedback that I get.

Heh. For the record, the searchers all probably wound up here.
