I noticed something exciting (well, to me anyway) last night- this blog reached 20,000 visits yesterday! 

I haven't paid much attention to the statistics lately, mostly because they aren't very interesting. The blog averages about 25 visits a day, and the search words that lead people here aren't as funny as they used to be.

It seems like a lot of the traffic comes from Facebook, which is good- that means that people who are actually interested in the Sandbar are the ones arriving here, instead of random people across the country who get here by mistake.  I've said before, I'd much rather have ten regular readers (who leave comments!) than fifty randoms who never come back.

The rest of the traffic is the usual "what happens before/during/after a hurricane" searches.  It seems like everyone in the world should have an answer to that question by now.

I started the blog back in September, 2006, so it's taken about two and half years to reach 20,000 visits. I think that's pretty good. Thanks for reading!
