Two Hundred

This is a bit of a filler post, something I’ve decided to do every hundredth post. It’s just an overview of what I’ve been doing, and what the readership on the blog is like. It’s mainly for my own interest, but some others may be curious.

Keep your eyes peeled, though, because I should have the first set of DFRPG questions and answers up sometime this evening.

It’s now exactly two years since I started this blog, and this is my two-hundredth post. It’s fitting, in a lot of ways, that the Dresden Files RPG, which I started this blog to talk about, is once more featuring in my posts as it begins its headlong dash to the June release date.

I was going to do a comparison of stats over the past year with the previous year, but at the beginning of April, 2009, the stat package I was previously using stopped working, and hadn’t been supported by its creator for a while. So, I got a new (and significantly better) stats package from the same creator. But this meant that I’m missing about a month and a half of data, and the new package tracks some things very differently from the previous one.

Still, here’s a look at how things stand, from April of 2009 to present:

  • 200 posts (obviously)
  • 24 pages (no change)
  • 10 categories (up 3 from post 100)
  • 308 tags (up 97 from post 100 – I created roughly 50% fewer these past hundred posts)
  • 480 comments (up 161 from post 100)
  • Average of 108 hits a day, including RSS subscribers
  • The U.S. accounts for roughly 48% of my hits, with Canada in second place at 34%, and the U.K. in third with 8%. Australia, Poland, and France each have about 1% each.
  • Winnipeg, my home town, is the city giving me the most hits, at 2,824.
  • Total number of hits since April 2009: 11,622

All, in all, it’s been very gratifying. I even had one of my posts nominated for the Open Game Table, which I found rather flattering, because it wasn’t me or any of my friends that did it.

So, thanks for coming by. Thanks for reading. And thanks for coming back.
