Sometime in early September, we’re going to cross the 11 million hits mark at HillBuzz…which is recorded since July of 2008.
If we included the period we were on blogspot, from February 17th (HillBuzz Day, our birthday) to July of 2008, we crossed the milestone some time at the end of July…but we’re only tracking the wordpress period with this current site.
We especially want to thank the uptick in hits we’re getting from a gay site in New York that has been attacking us this week…he knows who he is. You’re sending us thousands of new hits every day each time you do this, and bringing us this much closer to the 11 million mark. Thanks! The record-keeping doesn’t care whether these are supporters’ hits, or trolls, so every time the Left writes something nasty and encourages its people to come here, write hatemail, or generally be as nasty as possible, there’s this slim silver lining to all of it because it just keeps adding to the hit count.
There are professional sites, run off actual newspapers and other dinosaur media outlets, that have been around since 2000 or so that don’t have 11 million hits yet.
Interestingly enough, we pulled the numbers for one of those New York sites attacking us today, and it’s been around since 2005…and we have more hits than they do, despite them being in existence three full years longer than us.
Very interesting stuff, folks.
We seriously pray for wisdom and grace to come to these people…while also wanting to let them know that every time they attack us, every time they direct more traffic to us, every time they throw everything in the kitchen sink at us, it only succeeds in raising our profile, giving us more exposure, and making us stronger and more committed to doing all the things we do that infuriate these trolls in the first place.
They create their own worst enemies and make us a much bigger deal than we would ever have been if not for their attacks.
So, keep it coming, Lefties. And maybe we’ll hit 11 million this week, instead of next as we’re projecting.
