I've had 30,000 hits since I put my stat counter on my blog last March. That's kind of fun! Of course, I'm sure it's probably the same 20 people who just check it over and over, but that's okay. It counts you as a unique visitor if it's been more than an hour since you last visited my blog. On a good day I'll have as many as 250 unique visitors.
What's also kind of fun is that I can see what state and city you live in, how you found my blog (like what words you put into Google) and how much time you've spent on my blog too. If you have a blog, you should totally spy on the people who are spying on you. www.statcounter.com.
Happy first day of 2009!
