It took a while but after a decade of blogging, I finally passed half a million page views on my blog. Not an impressive number I grant you, especially when one takes into account the length of time that has passed before the milestone was reached. Yet it's a number I am grateful for. Why? Because in spite of all the views that may have landed accidentally, it still means a proportion of them, however small, comprise of readers who do want to follow my blog. For that alone I am grateful.
Sadly this milestone has occurred in the midst of other statistics of a much worse nature. Where I'm at, there are almost daily records for number infected, number of deaths, number of patients in the intensive care units, number of people dying in their homes, the list goes on in this never-ending pandemic. May you, dear reader, be safe in such trying times. And to all of you who have taken the time to read and comment on my blog throughout all these years ... thank you!
