the counter that Google used to have on the G+ (google has their own version of Twitter) which they took down a couple years ago, and tracked all hits to the blog, and the G+ account side of the same content, which google auto posted to G+, was getting about 200,000 hits a day, by my numbers that I tracked from May 2014 to Jan 2015, and was at 4698139383 on Jan 19th, 2015
Just using that same trend, I estimate that the G+ numbers would be around 688 million hits right now. That's an impressive half a billion plus.
Things like that cause me to not be surprised when I come across a photo I took 10 years ago being the image some stranger is using as his facebook avatar.
notice the barrel of Nitro in the lower left corner?
I found it at the Mendenhall Museum of Petroliana, and took this photo in 2011 https://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2011/05/nitromethane-nitrofuel-concentrate-for.html
And today when I saw that Keith is using it as his avatar? I was pretty pleased to have put something out there on the internet that someone could appreciate, and use for their representation on facebook
