Some time on Wednesday, HeroPress crawled battered and bruised over the 900,000 hits mark - just shy of seven months since we limped over the 750,000 threshold.
I'd like to say it was my participation in Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day that pushed HeroPress over the edge, but to be honest a mere fraction of visitors that day came via other gaming sites.
We're still averaging less than 300 hits a day. Some wiser heads than me have suggested this drop-off is across the board because of changes in Google, but I still believe that if I could post regular, quality content on a single subject (such as gaming) then people would be more inclined to visit more often.
Anyway, we still managed to attract a new recruit to our big adventure this week - and as I always say Followers are far more important than hits.
Please join me in a few verses of a rousing hobbit drinking song to welcome:
