I am pleased to announce that my blog received its 2,500th hit last night. Since its inception in Mid-May, I have posted 63 posts (well over halfway to my goal of 100 for the year) and received about 16 hits a day. The blog received the most traffic when David Pettegrew, Scott Moore, and Susie Caraher contributed regularly and the Pyla-Koutsopetria Archaeological Project was in the field in Cyprus (having a link from the University's main webpage probably didn't hurt either).
Over recent weeks this has become consistent traffic, and I am optimistic enough to note a slight upward swing.
There does seem to be a loose correlation between how often I post and the number of hits the page gets. This is good positive reinforcement! For those of you who read this blog regularly, if you keep reading, I will certainly keep posting.
