Thanks for all the comments and compliments.
A couple of things -
1. @tobakenist

Ah but, if 1 person visits 10 times a day is that 10 hits.
Cyndi answered this correctly, but I would like to add ...
Hits = every single request sent to the server. It is a useless number. For example, If we had a web page with ten photos on it and one person loaded the page, that would tally up 11 hits. One hit for each of the ten photos and the 11th hit for the actual file that is the webpage itself.
Sorry. I couldn't help it. I love education and I used to be an Internet Consultant.

That is fantastic news. It's wonderful to see the growth in interest of pipe smoking. Let's hope this continues to grow so the general public can understand the beauty of pipe smoking. Keep up the great work!
There's more to come. International Pipe Smoking Day is coming up Feb 20th.
PipesMagazine.com, The United Pipe Clubs of America and The International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association are all working together on some behind the scenes stuff to try to make it as big of an event as possible and get it into the large national mainstream media.
Keep your fingers crossed. I'm working my butt off on it.

That's great news, and I'm sure you guys will pull something off to make it a huge event.

The suspense is killing me! Feb 20 Feb 20 Feb 20... Mustn't forget.
Congrats on the 10k+ hits. Like 7k of those are visitors who are not members right? I'm actually not sure how many of the current members are "active".

Probably something like that. It is quite common on all websites, regardless of market niche, that the vast majority of visitors are passive readers.

We had a total of 15,033,933 hits.

LOL. I'm happy to report that we have a record 21 advertisers for December. I've closed my web development business last month and now work full time on PipesMagazine.com and http://cigarchronicles.com/
