We live or die, sadly, by the visitor statistics. We hit a peak in early May, and then fall off a cliff. I have been saying (bravely), that all will be well, and that the corner will be turned on the second Monday in July.

Here we are two days later, and lo and behold, the 30 day running total of Page Views did indeed turn on Monday and improve again on Tuesday. I am not sure how pleasing it is that the figures are so predictable, but in cycle terms, they are.

More pleasing is that we are still doing much better than last year. On the second Monday of July 2015, the page views over the previous 30 days stood at 137471. This year, that figure was 201576. This represents about a 45% increase over the year.
