5,000,000 views! Thank You

My blog passed 5,000,000 page views today, which translates to about 4,000,000 visitors. (A visitor reads on average 1.2 pages.) That’s 8 years’ worth of blogging and over 1,000 posts.  Now Google probably gets at least 5 million clicks per millisecond but, heck, I’m just an old philosopher trying to organize and share my thoughts.

Anyway, I want to thank my many readers for spending some of their precious time reading my musings. Also, a special shout-out to those who take the time to comment. I often learn a lot from others’ ideas.

Finally, I would especially like to thank my patrons who offset the cost of hosting the site. In fact, my costs for hosting, spam filter, etc are now covered. Yeah!  That strangers contribute to the site just fills me with ineffable joy and gratitude. Thank you so much.
