389,254. That's how many pageviews this blog has had since September 2008. By my rough calculation that is over 5,000 per month on average.
We are closing in on 400,000 all-time pageviews, and in honor of that milestone we need to do something special. I haven't figure out quite what that is yet, but it probably involves someone getting a free autographed copy of The Beat Handbook for a beat action they take in response to some future blog post.
Wait for it . . . .
