This blog reached 1¾ million pages just now. It's been averaging more than 1700 views a day for the last two years and more than one page view a minute every day for almost three years. The counter reached 250,000 on September 30, 2012, half a million on May 6, 2013, three-quarters of a million on November 30, 2013, one million on March 25 last year and 1.5 million on December 26. My Google+ page says 32.3 million views, but I have no idea what that means - simple spam fodder I assume. What I do know is that the interest in typewriters is still out there, though what I've been posting has been pretty trivial stuff. I'm hoping to encourage Christopher Long in Normandy, Richard Amery in Sydney and Michael Klein in Melbourne to join the Typosphere in the coming months, and look forward to a more serious approach from them than I've been able to muster on the subject of typewriting in the 21st century. Meanwhile, I'm thinking of starting a new blog, on sports history. Not that I expect the sporting waters to be any less shark (or spam) infested!
