On 11/15/15, I switched to new software which better monitors this blog. As a result, the data for this blog from before 11/15/15 are not useable. There was a do over as of 11/15/15.
On 1/12/16 at about 4:30 PM, this blog welcomed a visit from its 1000th unique IP address since 11/15/15. Today, on 1/14/16 at about 9 AM, this blog is past 1100 uniques.
A unique IP address represents a computer which is a surrogate for a person. The assumption is that one unique IP address = one person. Obviously, this may not always be the case. For example, one person may use two computers or smart phones and two people may use one computer or smart phone. The assumption is that these exceptions will even out so we assume one unique IP address = one person.
Therefore, over 1000 individuals have visited this blog SINCE 11/15/15, two months ago. If we were able to go back to the blogs beginning, the number would be larger.
To put 1000 in perspective, it is about 35% of the number of voters in the last election. I have been told that the Darien Times had a circulation of 6000 when the paper was free. I have been told that the circulation is now 3000 after the Times decided to charge for the paper. If true, this blog has a circulation that is one third of the Times’ current circulation. In the context of Darien, 1000 is a big number.
I want to thank everyone for their support. I have been asked if I would consider taking advertising on this blog. Absolutely not. I am not in this for the money. My passion is to get Paramedics based in Darien. You and your loved ones deserve the chance for life. I will not stop until Darien has Paramedics.
I also cover many other issues. I make mistakes. I try to bring you news that others will not. I believe in intellectual violence. My hope is that the best ideas win out. I have no problem questioning and criticizing. I DERIDE, YOU DECIDE.
Once again. Thank you.
