300 Posts!

It took 6 months to reach 100 posts, and then 13 more months to reach 200 posts. Since then, it's taken 14 months to reach where we are now: 300 bklynbiblio posts! Huzzah! Fireworks definitely still are in order. The image you see here is a hand-colored etching of fireworks outside Whitehall Palace on the River Thames on 15 May 1749, an event for which the composer George Frideric Handel composed his famous Music for the Royal Fireworks (image: Wikipedia).

Over the past 2 years, Blogger has been keeping statistics on their blogs, and I thought you might find some of the stats about bklynbiblio to be of interest. In the past 2 years, I have had 10,321 page views. Nearly 5,000 of these views have been from US Internet addresses, followed by about 1,000 coming from the UK. Germany, Canada, and Italy make up the next 3. Very interesting to me are the top 5 most frequently visited posts over the past 2 years. I can't tell if #1 is a surprise or not, but here you go: #1. Male Enhancement [July 5, 2010; 397 views]; #2. Review: Yinka Shonibare MBE [Sep 6, 2009; 311 views]; #3. Books of 2010 [Nov 28, 2010; 178 views]; #4. The Passing of Lionel Lambourne [Feb 28, 2010; 169 views]; and #5. 50 UK Days: Week 2.5 [Oct 28, 2010; 157 views]. Among #s 6-10 are my posts on the movie Little Ashes and my thoughts on Anthropomorphizing Canines.

Thanks to my readers for your ongoing encouragement and support! Here's to the next 100 posts!
