Why do we like nice round numbers? 100…1,000…10,000…1,000,000. They’re all really nice numbers. 500 and 5,000, too. We like them a lot. They look nice will all those zeroes. We can recognise them quickly. They seem to pass a level in the number sequence, like adding another zero. But really, they’re just a product of our counting system. We could very well have a counting system based on 12. Or how about one based on 8?
What am I talking about here? Well, this blog has reached one of these milestones. This morning, it got its 10,000th view! The past 5 months have seen a big increase in traffic here. I’d like to thank everyone reading, and I hope to provide you with more great posts.
