Jan 19th is the 3-year anniversary of this blog. I started back in 2005.
Some obligatory stats:
- Total posts - 244
- Total hits - about 715,000 - almost 3/4 of a million
- Total comments - 270
- Most difficulty blog entry - Silverlight TruckWars - I spent a good chunk of time writing a Silverlight arcade game.
Some things to note:
- The popular posts are never what I expect. I spend 10 hours writing a detailed post, and it gets little traffic; I spend 5 minutes whipping out a brain-storm, and it gets a thousand hits. Ironic.
- User comments have been great. There have been some discussions on posts, some people who have added useful enhancements to a post, and others who just let you know that they're reading it.
This is also a good time to point out that in the upper right corner of this blog, there's a "Donate" button to the Lupus Foundation of America to help find a cure for lupus. If you've ever been helped by this blog, consider giving even a $1 or $5 donation to help people with Lupus.
