How much? (You may be asking...)
Normally, only a good day, the blog gets about 500 hits. September 20th and 21st were, obviously, not good days. After that they days got very good indeed, almost hitting the 10,000 mark. It's been quite a while since I had an outlier like that!
The day isn't over yet, so I can't comment on the drop-off just yet. I'm hoping some of the new visitors will check in again from time to time.
