This last 100,000 was slower than the previous two. This blog has changed focus slightly, which usually makes readership decline, but the biggest decline started around when I started reviewing every movie I watched, which was likely also around the time that Google lowered my rank, possibly penalizing me for crossposting my blog into other social networks. At this rate 1M-1.1M will take another 11.5 months or so. That would put my prediction for hit #1,100,000 at around 2/28/2013 plus or minus 15 days. We’ll see what happens. I’ve been playing this game for awhile, but it’s getting harder to predict the future!
