I promised a statistics entry and teased it yesterday, so it's time to deliver.
As of 11:59 P.M. E.D.T. on March 20, 2016, I had posted 2724 total entries, the blog had earned 595,621 page views, and the readers and I together posted 1307 comments over the blog's first five years. As of that same time on March 20, 2017, those totals had reached 3101 entries, 948,385 page views, and 1903 comments during the first six years of the blog. Consequently, the sixth year of the blog saw me post 377 entries, which earned 352,764 page views and 596 comments from my readers and me. For comparison, the fifth year of the blog recorded 435 entries, which earned 176,458 page views and 443 comments.*
