I’m very chuffed about the fact that over the last week this site has passed the 5,000 clicks milestone. What this means is that since I started the site at the end of 2007 people have clicked on various pages on the site more than 5,000 times in total.
I think this isn’t too shabby, considering how specialised my intended readership is (that being South Africans teaching (or intending to teach) English in Korea). I haven’t been able to track down any decent stats on the numbers of South Africans in Korea, but I estimate it can’t be more than 1,000 in all. GEPIK, a prolific recruiter of South Africans, only has about 100 of us working in the programme. But if anyone out there has any reliable stats, please let me know.
Anyway, I hope that this site has helped at least a few people avoid dodgy recruiters and negotiate the ever-changing visa requirements. I’d like to see the site grow quite a bit more. I can always do with some suggestions for content, and if you are keen to write something, please let me know.
Tonight I’m going to get some cake and a glass of wine and celebrate. Who knows, maybe we’ll see 10,000 hits by the end of the year.
