Angry Bear Milestone

If you look at the hit counter (it counts unique IPs per day, not page views) at the bottom of the left panel sometime between 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. on Monday, you should see a number in the 50,000s! I’ve been a “Large Mammal” on N.Z. Bear’s Blogosphere Ecosystem for a while now and traffic is growing steadily, now averaging around 400 visits per day. I’m aiming high and hoping to hit 1,000 a day by year’s end.

Thanks to Dave Neiwert of Orcinus, who gave me my first link. Thanks also to Atrios and Matt Yglesias (also, here) for some early promotion; occasional links from CalPundit also helped drive traffic. I should also thank Mary Beth, Dwight Meredith, Charles Kuffner, Matt Stoller, and others who I’m unintentionally omitting.

Thanks also to Kash for his contributions. And of course, thanks to all the regular readers and welcome to new readers.


UPDATE: It looks like visitor 50,000 hails from the University of New Mexico.
