100,000 HITS!

To my readers,
Yikes, we hit a milestone on the blog today with 100,000 pageviews or hits.
The blog was started in May, 2008, as a local information site.  It was going to be a means to promote our small but active RI Carp Anglers Group (CAG)  club of local carp fishermen.  The blog has gone from a local RI website with local readers to a national and international audience. I get e-mails on the CAG website from carp fishermen all over the US who read the blog.  These are fishermen from New York, Texas, Illinois, Colorado, and Georgia to name a few states.  I have some interesting stats that come from my private homepage. Internationally, here are the top countries where the hits on the blog are coming from....#1 the US (no surprise), #2 the UK, #3 Russia, #4 Canada and #5 Germany. The blog has reached all over Europe, Asia and Africa with hits coming from other places like China, South Africa, the Ukraine and Latvia to name just a few countries.
And , the interest in carp fishing is soaring.  In the last month alone the blog recorded 4,112 pageviews.
Finally, my most popular post was back on Nov. 10, 2011.  The story was about the record carp that I caught here in RI (36 lbs.) which recorded 1,000 hits alone.
I hope everyone has enjoyed what I have written, and I hope I passed on some knowledge of this interesting fishery.
Thanks for your support and good luck carp fishing,
