102,002 and Counting

Twilight: The Missing Pieces hit 100,000 views last week, as a loyal “Twihard” has brought to my attention. I like watching the numbers roll by, but this milestone came up so fast that it caught me off guard. So I went back to look at some numbers for the website in the year it has been up.

At the end of January last year, I loaded the first file onto the website and three weeks later began posting Midnight Sun chapters. I kept writing continuously for the entire year and am now a few chapters shy of finishing all of the Twilight Saga books written from Edward Cullen’s point of view.

That is not particularly remarkable, but this is:
It took 10 months for the website to hit 50,000 views and it’s taken only 3 more months to hit over 100,000. The growth rate of viewers is increasing geometrically. The site now has 340 files, 240 of which are text (chapters), 100 of which are pictures.

Let me welcome the readers from India, who number more than all but Americans. Other large numbers are coming from England, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Poland, Denmark, the Netherlands, Germany, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Lithuania, Romania, Serbia, Sweden, Greece, Norway, Austria, Italy, Belgium, the Philippines, Portugal, Hungary, and Malaysia.

Numbers on the rise include Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, Colombia, Switzerland, Spain, Bosnia, Estonia, Guatemala, Uruguay, Peru, Finland, Singapore, Indonesia, and Hong Kong. More recently we’ve added visitors from Mongolia, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the UAE, China, Algeria, Trinidad & Tobago, Malta, Mauritius, Israel, Indonesia, Kenya, Jamaica, Dominica, and Russia. And today, Korea.

I operate under the assumption that the number of Twilight fans is infinite, so these numbers are a drop in the bucket, but you all are welcome and so are your friends. Feel free to comment on anything you read or anything you’d like to read.
