Oh, yeah. 50,000+

Guambat has noticed that his hit-o-meter has broken the 50,000 mark since his debut in 2005. Of course much of that is due to his habitual logging in to see what the current hit rate is, and to his seemingly fruitless attempts to prevent the hit-o-meter from registering such ego-oriented and deceiving statistics.

The hit-o-meter was also deceptively boosted along by some pranksters who were miffed (actually viciously agitated) several years ago by Guambat's innocent if not non-culpable practice of "borrowing" imagery from other posting around the web. Coincident with a few threats and nasty accusations, they somehow hacked his url or other identity so that all of his imagery, from whatever source, got high marks from search engines looking for images, so that many of the hits are not substantive but pictorial. It skews the hit stats terribly, but not so bad if Guambat ever decides to "monetize" this diatribe (not a chance).

The other big factor, of course, are his two readers. Thanks Captain Jack and Son of a Guambat, and I have not forgotten you either, Davo. The readers, Guambat thinks, reflect the eclecticism of the blog. But then Guambat thrives on his own adulation. Get it where you can.

Cheers everyone.
