Each tracking service counts things differently, and the counters I have disagree on how many visitors I've had. While the lead counter says I've had 99,859 visitors at this writing, another reports only 90,318, a discrepancy of 10%.
For this and other reasons, I don't use these counters for exact tracking, but for trends and general patterns. For those purposes, they're accurate enough; using trackers from different sources balances the systematic counting errors any single algorithm would incur.
So, regardless of whether it's 90,000, or 100,000, or some other number, I am grateful for all the visitors I've had over the years. My goal has never been to manage my "hit count." If it hasn't been obvious, this is a personal blog. I strive to avoid (or at least minimize) self-indulgence, and make my posts timely, relevant, and informative. But it will always be with my own voice. I own my words. I recognize that's not to everyone's taste. For those of you who do visit here, welcome, and thanks.
