At 6:13 am today The Zoo had it's 50,000th visitor! Horray! Said visitor is a comcast.net user and viewed two pages.
The numbers average out to 2,300 visitors a month - or 84 per day - over the last 20 months. Not bad, considering that The Zoo is more of an "online journal" than a competively visitor-seeking blog. In the past I've toyed with the idea of joining Blogcritics to make this site more visible, but it's a time commitment I'm not sure I'm willing to take on right now.
Anyway, thanks to everyone who has visited and commented over the past year and a half! Your time and effort are appreciated, and I sincerely hope you've found what you read here to be entertaining and valuable.
