One Hundred

So, a bit of a departure. This is the one hundredth post I’ve done for this blog, which I started on February 7, 2008. I thought I’d take advantage of the centenary post to look back on what I’ve done.

Here are a few statistics:

  • 100 posts (duh!)
  • 24 pages
  • 7 categories
  • 211 tags (Man, I was overusing tags at first.)
  • An average of 530 hits a day
  • An average of 106 unique visitors each day
  • 4,996 spam comments filtered out by Akismet

When I started the blog, I figured that I’d get a few people checking it out for the Dresden Files RPG playtest stuff, which would trickle off as the playtest ended, and then I’d probably abandon the blog.

That didn’t happen.

I’ve got into the habit of writing for the blog. It lets me talk about things that I find interesting, to rant about my opinions, and to sort out my thinking on a variety of topics. After the initial rush of the DFRPG playtest, I was a little burnt out, but then I got back into the groove, with an almost-regular posting frequency.

And you people keep coming to read it.

The big rush of reading was, unsurprisingly, during the playtest period, but I’m still getting around a hundred unique visitors each day. Even on days when I don’t post.

So, thanks. I’m glad to know that I’m doing something that people find interesting.

I think I’ll keep going. Here’s to the next hundred posts.

    Note: I’m not sure whether this tracks hits from those of us who have you on RSS feeds.

    The RSS feeds seem to be tracked in the overall hits, but not in the unique visits per day. At least, that’s how I interpret the dispaly from the stat plug-in I’m using. If anyone knows exactly how Short Stat handles this sort of thing, I’d love to hear it.
