One year blogging

So apparently today is the one year anniversary of my blog.  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:

Blog Stats

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 :("  Seriously... is someone holding a gun to your head?  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.  It's the only way that I can explain that I had over 44,000 spam comments without the visits.  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.  They must return every so often to try again.

So happy birthday to the blog.  🙂
