As most of you know, I don't use stealth software or traffic counters here on the blog to learn who visits or how many folks stop in. I think people should feel free to visit without worrying about having their presence known, detected, counted, spindled, folded, intruded upon or otherwise identified. It also helps me perpetuate my illusion that only a few friends stop by every day.
That said, once again I need to gather some statistics for a presentation I'm writing, and that requires a rough estimate of how many folks actually do stop by on any given day. Since my last figures are from 2008, I need a new count. So if you're willing to help out, please leave a ping, your name, your handle, or some other sign you've visited in comments to this post before midnight EST on August 5, 2009 (and naturally you may ping anonymously if you'd rather not reveal your identity.)
Thanks in advance for your help on this.
