Like many bloggers I rejoice in seeing hit counters hit milestones; enjoying the idea that other, similar minded gamers enjoy my humble gaming and hobby related ramblings. While I was away this blog surpassed the heart warming half a million hits mark, but how many of them are truly attributed to human action as opposed to some kind of 'bot' I wondered?
So it was with interest that I looked at my blog stats for the past year, during which my post count was barely a third of the previous 12 months. I know that many 'bots' hit sites with recent updates - if so, does this perhaps show a truer representation of gamer activity?
Honestly, I just hope that whoever pops by finds something of interest or a link that takes them somewhere they like. I found this trend of interest though and wanted to share it. Hits aren't anything really, its the blogosphere community and interaction that I think is fantastic - I missed being part of it while away.
