Today, the blog reached a new milepost. I started The Norton View just over a year ago, during the pre-election period of purdah when Lords of the Blog was not operating. The blog appears to have attracted a quality readership, apparent from the comments. It has built up a regular readership as well as attracting a number who arrive through serendipity, having typed in search engine terms (some quite esoteric) that brings them to the blog.
The blog has now been viewed over 75,000 times, which I believe is not bad for a modest enterprise of this sort. The views per day have increased in recent months. Fortunately, I know from comments from several regular readers that this is not the result of one person visiting the site 75,000 times. I hasten to add that the figures do not include my own visits to the site!
