500 visits after 23 days from 17 countries!

I’m glad to announce that this website has now had 500 visits after just 23 days!  This is however according to Statpress, Google Analytics seems to say I’ve had 552 visits …. hmmm… which one can I believe? Or maybe which one do I want to believe…  😉

Though to some people this might sound like peanuts, but considering I wasn’t even expecting anyone to come… this absolutely thrills me! I hope this means my research is relevant and the content I produce is hopefully useful.  I’m interested to know other people’s experience with their blog traffic and how does it influence the content of your blog. Hopefully we can share some knowledge and skills on this matter.
