Blog Status (February)

Hey everybody. I thought it would be interesting to post the status of this blog and some statistics. First of all, I’m looking for new ideas on stuff to add. What would you like to see? Post whatever you want to see in the comments. One idea that came up was an “Ask geowrian” section for people to ask me questions about anything from programming to security to gaming to anime to whatever you can think of. I like that idea but is anybody even interested? Drop me a line and let me know.

Hit the jump to see the blog details…

First of all, the blog is doing better than I expected. I have been incredibly busy lately and missed posting a few times, but I didn’t really expect it to be going so well. I’ll try to keep on my toes and stay on top of things now that I know people are actually reading. See for yourself:

Since the blog was created and records started being kept (2/5/2009), there have been 3090 hits on the page by 1561 different people. The numbers are EXCLUDING bots like search engines and such. These are actual people looking at the website. That alone was shocking…the site is averaging 1100 hits by 442 people per week based on the most recent weeks. I was expecting tens of people per week, not hundreds or hopefully a thousand.

The type of visitors are vast. People are checking out pages on everything from home improvement to gaming to programming to anime. I’m having a hard time reading what is really most popular among you people…no single category is popping out ahead.

We need more comments. I understand the current signup process is a pain. I’ll see what I can do to make it easier. But PLEASE: comment. I want to hear what you have to say.

Spam. While not a concern for visitors since no spam has made it through to the website yet, I’m getting a few spammers per day. Spammers: save both of us the trouble by just not posting here. Your comments will never make it on the site.

Here’s the really strange part….this is what people are searching for on search engines and find my site. On many of the searches, BalaraCo shows up on the first page in Google. Sometimes even results 1-4. Google really seems to like this blog for some reason.
