We've topped the one-million hit mark. In a time when some web sites get that many hits in a day (sites like Google and YouTube and NudeBaldBabes.com) that may not seem like much, so let me put it in terms that you can grasp:
If we count each post and each comment trail as a page, there are about 4350 pages on the blog. Throw in the pages on the other EE blogs and lay them end to end and we have a mile of pages. Assuming one million minions have read everything here, we have a million miles of read pages. Measured in kilometers, that's enough to reach the Andromeda Galaxy.
At our current pace we'll reach a billion hits in 2000 years. I don't think I'll last that long, so we have to increase the pace. If each of the thousand people who come here daily would convince 1000 other people to come here daily, we'd get a million visits a day, and a billion in three years. Three years sounds much more do-able than 2000 years. Let us go forth and multiply.
By the way, NudeBaldBabes.com was the fifth joke porn site I made up before I finally got one that didn't actually exist.
