Happy Birthday!

By Nick Robison

Today marks the 1 year anniversary of this humble website! Yes folks, one year later and we’re still hanging around for better or worse (probably worse). We’ve come a long way from the horrifically winding, overly wordy, poorly grammarized inaugural post, and hopefully this time next year will be an improvement over the current situation.

As I do, I thought it might be interesting to give a few statistics, complements of _Google Analytics. _Over the past few 12 months this site has seen:

  • 28 posts
  • 52 comments (2.85 comments per post)
  • 1,896 visits (5.19 visits/day)
  • 714 unique visitors
  • 4,560 page loads
  • 2.41 page loads/visit
  • The average visit duration was 2 minutes and 19 seconds
  • Visitors from 36 countries
  • 9 different browsers on 10 operating systems (It appears there’s only 1 blackberry left in the world)

Some cool images:

Where are they coming from?

As you can see, the overwhelming number of visitors are coming from the US.

And, within the US most of the visitors were from Indiana. What a surprise.

Over the next year I’m hoping to keep up with regular posting. One of the professors I worked with challenged me to write everyday, primarily academic writing, but I’m taking that to mean here as well. I’m planning on expanding on some technical projects I’m working on, which will appeal to a much more limited audience but could be kind of cool.

Thanks to everyone for reading, it means a lot to know that you’re out there and hopefully enjoying it. Here’s to another year!

Happy Birthday!
