Three Thousand, and Counting!

March 29, 2016

My blog has reached a new milestone today . . . my 3,000 post!  A journey that began on June 24, 2008, as a learning opportunity in concert with the Special Libraries Association’s “23-Things” Web 2.o initiative.  A journey that has continued for just under eight years (and counting).

To date, my blog has had . . .

  • 3,000 posts
  • 37,688 visitors
    • day with the most views: June 14, 2012 (1,091 views)
  • most popular day: Tuesday (17% of views)
  • most popular hour: 2:00 PM (7% of views)
  • visitors from 64 countries — the top ten countries by the number of visitors for 2016: U.S., Canada, U.K., Germany, France, Australia, India, Brazil, Netherlands, and Spain.

Historically, 2012 was by far the best year statistically with 371 posts published and 59,303 views . . . but the blog goes on.

One Thousand, and Counting!

November 8, 2010

Happy Monday!  I started blogging on June 24, 2008.  Two year, four months, and two weeks later, I’m publishing my 1,000th post!  My blog started as a learning tool and was created as an exercise during my progression through the Special Libraries Association’s “23 Things” (an introduction to Web 2.0 technologies and tools).  My blog is purely recreational, and, like the many other interests in my life, very eclectic.  And on this the one thousandth post, I would like to thank all of my loyal followers . . . I hope you have enjoyed reading my daily reflections as much as I have enjoyed creating them.

Here are the stats (for now):

  • 28 categories (some used more than others)
  • 3,092 tags
  • 293 (most views in one day, March 3, 2010)
  • 2,826 (views in 2008, an average of 15/day)
  • 42,412 (views in 2009, an average of 116/day)
  • 49,423 (views so far in 2010, an average of 159/day)

Happy Blogging!
