You Guys Rock a Half a Million Times!

It has been a while since I’ve told you readers how awesome you are but wanted to let you know of a pretty big milestone here at The Rantings of an Amateur Chef. As of this morning, you guys have visited the site over

500,000 Times!!!!

That is in addition to all of you subscribers who get your posts and don’t stop by as often as you used to (we miss your comments by the way). Here are some other relevant stats:

  • 500,028 hits (as of 12:48PM ET)
  • Number of published posts: 851
  • Top Referrers: Pinterest (69,907), Search Engines (27,727) and Facebook (11,506)

  • Most popular post: No Chipmunk Cheeks Here (196,464)
  • Most popular product review: Joie Microwave egg boiler and chip maker (1575)
  • Visitors from 191 different countries (40 countries with IP addresses assigned have not yet visited, so if you know of anyone in the following countries who can visit, you’ll make my day: Afghanistan, Aland Islands, Benin, British Indian Ocean Territory, Central African Republic, Comoros, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Republic of the Congo, Cuba, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Faroe Islands, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Guinea-Bissau, Holy See, Iran, Kiribati, North Korea, Kosovo, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Montserrat, Nauru, Niue, Norfolk Island, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, San Marino, São Tomé and Príncipe, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, Somalia, Swaziland, Togo, Tokelau, Turkmenistan, Tuvalu, Uzbekistan, Wallis and Futuna)
