896,845 hits and closing on a Million!
Chaos reigned since the announcement of a Special (as yet undisclosed) prize for the One Millionth Visitor to the ever popular Blog, Colombo Medgrads 1962.
This blog is about new entrants to the Colombo Medical Faculty of the University of Ceylon (as it was then known) in June 1962, and set up by Dr. Lakshman Abeyagunawardene
A spokesman we contacted said, “On 5-2-2016, the Blog had 885,954 hits.
This is a hit rate of about 200 a day. (8896 over 44 days)
We are short of 105.150 to reach a Million. if our hit rate continues at approx 200 per day (average), we need another 520 days to reach a Million. This is in about 17 months.
Based on these figures, we expect the 1 Million mark to be reached around July-August 2017:
The publicity phrase "Go on a blogging blitz and let us reach a Million hits" is reported to have gone viral.
