Approaching 1,000,000 Hits!

I don’t know if Lane is keeping track, but thought it worth at least a moment’s pause to note that this blog is nearing its 1 millionth “hit.”  Now the real question is which will come first, the 1 millionth hit, or Lane purchasing his 1 millionth book?

    Hey, remember the little people who are approaching 1000 hits. It’s pretty exciting for them too.:p

    Well I am pretty sure that Lane probably has already passed the one millionth book threshold. :)

    Well, Jeff has stolen a little bit of my thunder. But it must have been only a few minutes ago that I passed the 1,000,000 hits mark. As to my library, I won’t deny that it is sizable. but it is nowhere near, say, Al Mohler’s library. I only have about 2500 volumes, although it is quite a bit more if you count what I have on the computer.

    Ref. 3:

    Speaking of your library – what is your budget for books dude? It seems like every time I turn around you are reviewing another book.

    Do you need an assistant? :)

    Not much else to do but read in North Dakota, right?

    Just kidding :-)

    Does the 1,000,000 hit win a prize or something? Shouldn’t there be a book giveaway?

    Reed, given the number of hits I get, I have made deals with several publishers of Reformed books for free review copies. In addition, I advertise for the WTS bookstore, which brings in quite a nice sum to spend there. Furthermore, I have about $100 per month that I budget for books I cannot buy at WTS. So, I am acquiring at a fairly steady rate. An assistant, hmm. ;-)

    G.C., I don’t have the tools to know who got the 1,000,000th hit. So, I’m afraid no giveaway. :-(

    Lane,

    No tool needed. I think it was me. :-)

    How do you advertise for WTS?

    How many books does Mohler have?

    I think you should have a “greatest posts” section to commemorate this milestone!

    It would also be appropriate to award the poster with the 1,000,000th hit a good theology book.

    Thanks, Mark!

    Scott, as I mentioned, I have no way of knowing with WordPress who the exact hit was who put it over a million.

    Well, maybe then we could have a theological consolation prize for the first ten callers (posters) after the 1,000,000th hit is announced! This is outstanding.
