So apparently today is the one year anniversary of my blog.Â It's kind of hard to believe it's been that long in some ways, and in others I can't remember not having it...
According to my blog dashboard:
There are currently 82 posts and 253 comments, contained within 12 categories.
Akismet has protected your site from 44,694 spam comments.
I have to say that my personal favourite spam comments are the ones that start with "Sorry :("Â Seriously... is someone holding a gun to your head?Â Give me a break!
According to Feedburner, I currently have 61 people subscribed to my blog via RSS as well.
Just for fun, here's a map from Google that shows where the majority of visitors come from and some other related stats:
I believe that the visits listed in the stats are unique visitors, not gross visitors.Â It's the only way that I can explain that I had over 44,000 spam comments without the visits.Â I'm fairly sure, based on the IP addresses in the spam queue, that I don't have people just sit here posting multiple spam comments.Â They must return every so often to try again.
So happy birthday to the blog.Â 🙂
