Today marks the one year anniversary of the site. It all started with rants about DRM and the RIAA. Even though I’m not in Syp’s league for productivity, I have been happy that I’ve stayed with the site. I’m at 50 articles published (including this one) and yes I did have to scramble a bit this week to hit that number.
When I started out last October I had 24 hits for the month. January saw my first real jump with 62 hits and the blog stayed in that neighborhood until April when it jumped to 92. Traffic jumped again in May to 132 and peaked in August at 142 with September on track for the 140+ range as well. So right now I’m averaging 4-5 hits per day. Not hugely popular, but not bad considering my sporadic posting rate.
So huge thanks to those of you who stop by regularly to see if I’ve gotten off my lazy butt and written anything new, and an extra huge thanks to those who’ve left comments. While I don’t write here for anyone but myself, it’s always nice to get feedback and encouragement.
My goals for the blog for the next year are to post more regularly and more often. This anniversary kind of snuck up on me and I did have to push a bit to hit the 50 post number. So for this next blog year, I’m planning to double my output and hit the 150 post mark by this time next year. So now that its on the internet, maybe I’ll have more motivation to make it happen.
