The Great Purge Complete...
Just finished removing Free Blog Hit Counter from the prior posts on the blog. Given how there were 328 total and I'd posted relatively few new entries since I started the purge, this took about a month to accomplish.
(To be fair, I had other priorities, like writing "Son of Grendel" and having a social life. I could have done it last night if I hadn't had a karaoke outing.)
And per Blogger, the number of hits I have as of a few minutes ago is 46,787 since I started the blog in February 2010. When I purged the last of Free Blog Hit Counter, it said my blog hits totaled 41,000.
