The final stats-related milestone has now been reached, for the time being, as it stands.

I have now clocked up 25,000 visitors.

Now, I’m not exactly one-hundred per cent sure on the difference between a visitor and a view, but looking at these figures I’m told that each visitor on average has viewed something on my blog 6.1 times. They spent thirty-two minutes on average here, quite possibly forgetting to close their browser down when they left their computer / tablet / mobile phone / laptop / watch / 3D Visor / Smart TV / game console / microwave oven or whatever other piece of equipment they used to call by here*. However long they stayed, I’m still happy they called by! Hi, you one in (now over!) 25,000. I felt nervous addressing five-hundred people once, but what’s 25,000 here in Blogland?

Not that I’m stats orientated, no, not me.

My next target is to have had at least one visit from every single country in the world… whether I’ll achieve this or not remains to be seen, but looking at the World Map of All Time, I don’t really have that many countries left to visit:

* This figure is a complete estimate, and – actually it’s complete fiction. How many folk do you know who use their microwave to read the internet?

So, this is the latest Milestone Post, the previous ones being reaching 2,000 posts and then receiving 150,000 views.

Who knows? The next milestone will be when I have coloured in the entire world…

We shall see!

      I think it may be a while until my next stats-based post… not necessarily a bad thing! 😉

  3. Well done! Earlier today my stats put me on edge as I had 666 followers 😂 I was mighty relieved when 667 came along. I love stats lol, I like that you could find out about how long they spend on your blog too.

    1. Oh, I’m way behind followers-wise, MrsCraft! I’ll be keeping my eye on that number now that you’ve mentioned it… 666 is impressive though, all things considered! 😉
      The figure as to how long they stayed here may be somewhat vague, however…

      1. Haha, I’m not sure how it happened. All stats are interesting, but the ones where it doesn’t go your way (like a really low day for traffic) are a tad depressing.

  4. Go you good thing!! Great post about stats. I will never be able to work out the difference between views and visits. But it’s fun to look at and analyse every now and again. Thanks for following my blog – it always sounds a bit like religious ‘followers’ to me and I find I start giggling to myself. Small things….

    1. Many thanks, Deb!
      Yes, I agree… ‘followers’ does seem rather cult-like, but we belong to a good cult if it is!
      And it’s my pleasure… I only wish I had more time to view ALL of your posts, rather than playing catch up all the time. One day, I will. I’ll be organised, you’ll see! 😀

  5. Gosh … I don’t really look at my stats. I guess I should see who’s creeping around my blog. But, then again, I might get freaked out. I’ll ignore those stats for a bit longer.
    Congrats … on those great numbers.

    1. They are an interesting read, Isadora, but you do start to think ‘why only so many today?’… they aren’t really the important part of blogging anyway!

  6. Hmmm… The way they are creating EVERYTHING to be web connected it’s only a matter of time!!! 🙂

    Hope you have success with your next milestone – whatever it may be!!! 😉

    God Bless!

    1. It is scary, Prenin, just how much is connected to the web nowadays. Quite interesting as well, thinking about it.
      As for my next milestone, well, I’ll know it when I see it… and I’ll post about it! 😀
