Million Milestone

Today, someone made the one millionth pageview of this TR blog since inception on 30 June 2011 with views of ET station foundations.
The graph shows pageviews each month, with a steady slow climb, particularly over the last few months.   (Something inexplicable happened in June 2015.)


The green density map & top ten list shows pageviews over the previous 24 hours by country, as far as can be determined.   France has recently taken the lead.

Thanks to contributors & viewers for your continued interest.
