This is how I have done from January - May of this year. There has been increase.
For the month of May, here is how my statistics look (Statcounter- the number counter on the right hand side of the blog towards the bottom does this).
During the last week of May, I had 928 unique hits- which is close to my goal of 1000 hits a week! It is not that much compared to many commercial blogs. Still, its good to know that so many people are looking at this blog every day!
