Turning 1,000: Blogger Math

Your Check Is In The Mail...

If the recent numbers hold, I should reach 1,000 views on My Song sometime 'twixt now and sunrise. That's since installing that neat little tracker widgit thingie late eve of March 15... thirty-four days ago.

Now, I understand that many of you-- Bee and Rose; Hermit Jim, Phelan; Pearl (why, you little...) -- who have loyal readership in quadruple-digitdom-- get this many 'hits' like every other hour or so...
Ol' Cyggie is just thankful he was able to cough up sufficient fundage to influence ten of you to hit my site 100 X each...

One of the neat things about the widget is it's breakdown of visits.
Time? Most of you are online tween 0830-1000 hrs and 2030-0100 hrs.
Average visit time is around three minutes.

Now that got me to thinking...

I visit, on average, 40 blogs per day.
I read. I comment. Often I re-visit for commented-upon comments...

Applting the statistics above to self:

40 (blogs) x 3 (minutes) = 120 minutes.

Throw in even another 30 seconds for commenting-- which we'll say I do on half of all read:

.5 x 40 = 20 minutes

Two-and-a-half hours JUST TO READ AND COMMENT.

Then to write (if we may fey that what I do here be such...).

If I'm lucky, done in an hour.

Can I request we add another half-hour for dickering around whilst keyboard-infatuated?

FOUR HOURS.

And you know what, people? IT AIN'T ENOUGH!!!

I love, love LOVE this community! And we are, you understand.

Thank you, Folks!

I've grown a lot via my blogger exposee. And wouldn't change a thing about it!

[Well, maybe... the next ten 'fragrant grease' recipients can expect "economic adjustments" in recompense...]

So, any of you wanna earn a dollar?!?

Email me!!!

Slainte, Folks!

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Stephanie-- Thank you!
And I mark you as 998, but... who knows? HA!

Just bizarre to think that a number like that applies here... flattering, but... kinda laughingly cool too.

OK, I'm obviously done making any sense...
Must needs sleep.
Soon.. Soon..(gazes at counter, drool a-drip..)

Congrats Cyg...now keep goin', lol!

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

WOW! OZARK MOMMA!
If Cygnus gets any richer tonight, we'll buy the world and... hell, who cares after that! It'll be OURS.

Hunh.. come to think -- IT IS, ain't it?

Thanks, O.M.

Midnight Hike? :P

Ozark Momma said...

It's a thought Cyg...temp sitting at 46, clear skies and the geese on the lake are raising a racket...would be a good one for a hike for sure!

Alas, I'm slightly doped up (pulled muscle and don't know how it got that way) and not sure I want to do a header into a tree tonight...maybe later after the drugs have worn off ('course, they wear off quicker if I'd leave the wine alone).

Rain check on the geese-gandering?

Thanks, Uncle HermitJim! Many more'd be okay, but darned if I aint blessed to have what (WHO, too!) I do... Thanks, dude!
