There’s a magical element about that number. Maybe because it is 1000 squared. Or maybe it’s a quantity that is very high, yet still within the realms of human imagination. It’s a number that certainly exudes magnitude.
There are a number of phrases with the word “million”, some examples:
– thanks a million
– not in a million years
– one in a million
– million dollar question
– million-dollar deal
– multi-million dollar project
– million dollar baby
– I told you a million times (CO2 is not driving the climate!)
As I mentioned earlier this morning, today is a special day for NoTricksZone – this site reached the milestone of 1,000,000 hits – some time around 11 a.m. this morning – a little more than a year after first starting on 1 April, 2010.
THANKS A MILLION – READERS!
Okay – compared to other blogs, which get this in just weeks, or even days, it’s not so much. Yet, it far surpasses anything I expected when I first got started. The first days of blogging saw a few dozen hits, and I thought maybe some day I’d get 100 or even 500 hits a day. One hundred thousand hits seemed so remote. But here we are – 1,000,000!
The first 6 months NTZ saw 220,000 hits, and the next 6 months and 10 days we got 780,000 hits.
Also thanks to the guest writers who contributed, namely Matt Vooro, Ed Caryl, Juraj, Jimbo (I know I’m missing a person or two here, so please forgive me) and all the regular readers. Readers are always welcome to contribute as guest writers.
And hopefully readers will keep dropping by.
Thanks to other sites for posting and mentioning my posts, particularly Climate Depot, WUWT, Tom Nelson and others. All of this contributes to readers getting stories and insights that they might not otherwise see. My main focus will be to continue writing about climate news in Germany and Europe so that people can get a feel of what is going on here.
