This is the 3rd time that WordPress.com has ADMITTED to Stats problems in a MONTH!
And now January 17, 2016.
This is not acceptable. I love WordPress.com, of course, but this drives me nuts.

Essentially the same problem we, i.e., WordPress.com bloggers, were having mid-December 2015 — and I talked about here. It was a server problem then and most likely that is the same problem now.
Notice it says I have had ‘1’ Visitor and ‘164’ Views.
Yes, of course, that is possible and on my ‘Orgasm blog’ I do see such patterns on a daily basis with some visitors doing 30, 40 or more views per visit.
But this is how I can PROVE, irrefutably, that the ‘1’ Visitor number is wrong. Just look at my ‘Views by Country’ — and for reasons of space I only show the first 6 countries.
The SAME one visitor cannot be from MULTIPLE countries. Right? You do get that. QED.
If it only listed one country then the ‘1’ visitor could have been right.
The stats are wrong and have been for the last 48 hours. As I have said before I have a fairly good feel of my stats (and I have thing about numbers and stats).
Unlike in mid-December I do NOT have a way of getting this confirmed by WordPress.com. I am not getting their “Can I be of help?” prompts of late. They cycle through their HUGE user base with this. So my window is gone for now.
Just wanted to give you a heads up. Very frustrating.

This Blog, My ‘nhlife.wordpress.com’, My Personal Eclectic Musings On The Thousands Of Things That Interest Me Crosses 200,000 Hit Mark.
by Anura Guruge
Check ‘Blog Stats’ on sidebar >>>>>
This is all time … including last year which is when I started posting on this blog.
Of the 200,000+ hits, 165,800 are just from this year.
29,370 just from November 2013.
And to think that some people think that I only get hits from Alton!
But, this is NOT, of course, my only blog.
I own at least 20 … and I am afraid to count.
For the last 19 months this has been my the blog that I spend most time on.
But, my ‘Popes-and-Papacy‘ blog is by far the one that gets most traffic.
That has had 229,803 views for the year.
Since its inception in 2010 it has had 620,179 hits!
And I had a TypePad version of it prior to that … which I deleted one day in a fit of pique.
My ‘Windows 7’ blog, which has been dormant since 2010, has had 194,143 hits.
My ‘Papam’ blog, which I haven’t touched since March this year, is at 187,149.
So lets add it all up:
nhlife = 200,104
Popes-and-Papacy = 620,179
Windows 7 = 194,143
Papam = 187,149
And I have at least 4 other blogs that I could use to
bolster this count.
But, I won’t.
It doesn’t matter.
Has NOT made me rich or famous — as Deanna points out near daily.
But, it amuses me and that is all that matters.
One person, without any help, and without spending a dime on marketing,
1 million hits
spanning popes, Windows 7, astronomy, N.H., Alton, trains, brains,
red wine, restaurants, Poppy Day and sex …

No this is not old news. The last 100,000 post was in mid-June when this Blog was inching towards 100,000 all-time views.
Since then we are approaching, and will reach it today or tomorrow, 100,000 for THE YEAR.
We are still in August and we have had TRIPLE the hits for all of 2012.
It, as they will always tell you, has all to do with content and perseverance.
Here are the first 8 posts on this blog MINUS the ‘Windows 7’ posts that I moved to my Windows 7 blog (which has an all-time hit count of 184,400).
I started this blog, in anger, when I found out that Dartmouth Hitchcock Clinic (DHMC) had quite literally abused me in the posterior! I wanted others to know so they could avoid getting violated.
I was no stranger to blogging. I already had multiple, quite active, pope blogs.
After the DHMC post I didn’t do another until I had a run-in with U.S. Cellular. Again the goal was to give others a heads up.
Then Windows 7 came along and I really got hooked on it – especially since I had this PC, handbuilt, for Windows 7. I started blogging incessantly about Windows 7. I also found many tips on how to get the best from Windows 7 and even how to fix some bugs. Suffice to say that these posts became very popular and remain so — since some of the bugs, such as the appearance of the annoying padlock, still persists. So I created a new ‘Windows 7’ blog and moved all the Windows 7 posts from this blog to that and then did my Windows-related posts on that blog. That blog still gets 100+ hits a day though I stopped posting on it way back in 2011. Just don’t have the time.
In February 2012 we started homeschooling Devanee because she was getting bullied at Alton Central School (ACS). Homeschooling proved to be a popular topic. That explains the spike in popularity in early 2012. Then the Olympics. My few Olympics posts were a hit. That is when I started posting here on a daily basis.
My ‘popes-and-papacy‘ blog has had 625,000 hits since 2010. That is another blog that I have now put to pasture. My ‘papam’ blog, also inactive, has had 184,000 hits. So 809,000 hits on just these two pope blogs.
Add the 133,956 from here and the 184,472 from Windows 7
and we have 1,127,812 hits!
Well all these hits hasn’t really made me rich — though of LATE we are seeing some ‘bennies’.
Just wanted to chronicle this, because that is what blogging is meant to be. Thanks. Cheers.
Yes, we did hit 100,000 on Saturday, August 24, 2013 as I had assumed in my earlier post.

Not sure if any body notices but if you look at the BLOG STATS just to the right of you (>>>>) you will see that it is reading 99,xxx.
That means that one of these days this blog would reach its 100,000 views mark to join my popes-and-papacy, Windows 7 Professional and Papam blogs. It also means that there has been over 64,000 hits just in 2013, double what I had for all of 2012, though I only started blogging in anger on this blog around August of last year.
Contrary to what you might think I can’t personally bump up these stats myself — or at least I can’t do it easily. These stats are provided directly by WordPress and they exclude all hits coming from the same IP address as the blog admin, i.e., me. So for me to bump up these stats I have to use a totally different Internet connection. While, of course, I could do that, I have better things to do and I have never really gained any satisfaction in fudgging stats or buying reviews for my books.
IF you happen to notice that YOU are the 100,000 visitor, by seeing the counter at 100,000 take a screenshot, please. Look up how to do that because it depends on what you are using. On Windows 7 you can just use the handy-dandy snipping tool. If you send me the screenshot I will send you a nice present — possibly a book.
Thanks for visiting this blog.
