Past The Million Mark

I continue to be amazed at how many of you there are, and how you seem to find your way here. However it is happening, I thank you, reader, for stopping by. I've been writing here pretty much every day for nearly 2 years now, and I've watched an increasingly large number of you returning or arriving every month. Last month, though, we passed through a pretty large threshold. October 2005 will be remembered as the month that Vinography received in excess of one million hits in a single month. Pretty damn cool, considering just 22 months ago, that number was about 1000. Thanks to all of you for continuing to read. Let's see if we can double that number again in another 6 months.

Congrats. I started reading last week and have subscribed to the site via Bloglines. I usually end up at the site, however, since only a portion of your articles are available via RSS. As for added traffic, I'll add a link to my site. Maybe my 6 readers will enjoy some Vinography.

What more can anyone say...congratulations my good man!

As I always say to friends who ask about wine blogging and your blog "Vinography is what LENNDEVOURS wants to be when it grows up...at least in terms of impact and readership"

Yes, well done. I come into your site mainly to read and I am often surprised by the range of knowledge and expertise available.

Long may you blog!

I started reading Vinography because your review on the Prisoner and also because your website was in Jan '05 issue of Bon Appetite. Now I visit at least once whenever I am online.
Thank you for providing us a great read and edcuation on wine.

Thanks everyone for your comments and congratulations. I don't know if I'd still be doing this after so long if you weren't all coming here to read, and seemingly enjoying it.
