This blog is now two years old. One year ago, I wrote
I’ve had 92 posts (93 counting this one) in that year, which seems like a reasonable number.I’ve had about 8000 visitors to the blog, which seems pretty good. Not up with the big boys (sites like BoingBoing) with millions of visitors, but ahead of lots of sites. The visitors have provided some commentary activity (69 comments, about half from me). I only have eight other blogs linking to me (ranking the blog 316,042 at Technorati) so I need to get the blogrolling thing going better.
It is amazing the amount of spam comments that are generated. My system has protection against such comments (Akismet) and it has caught 2,205 (!) spam comments.
My posting frequency is down a little bit with 83 posts (I’d like to get it up to a consistent twice per week) ; comments are up to 123, again half from me; 20 blogs point to me putting my Technorati ranking down to 415,686. Average visitors per month has gone from 1000 to 2000. The big increase: I received 38,000 (!) spam comments. Unbelievable!
The best thing: we are starting to see more blogs on OR. So check out the blogroll and spread the word!
