Blog Stats

I’m feelin’ the love.

Ten days ago my blog traffic more than doubled. I’ve had spikes before so I wasn’t too surprised. I would now consider this the baseball equivalent of a “Streak.” I know it could end any day and crash like a Wall Street Bank, but I am going to enjoy it while it’s here.

Being a Virgo I am a bit of a little professor with a need to know all the little mechanisms behind the numbers. Why is it after clicking along for months, between 100-200 hits a day, did it suddenly jump like that?

My ego wants to say, because you guys love me. You love what I write about and how I write about what I write about. You love my charming wit, my ink-borne smile, my slightly warped viewpoint and Cliff Claven like knowledge bank. I am a walking encyclopedia of worthless information.

Bu really, I’m not sure this has much to do with what I write about at all. Yeah, I have a pretty diverse blog with lots of different topics ranging from Cousin Eddie (who is good for a dozen or so hits every day) to Captain Crunch.

I think it’s got everything to do with the underpinnings of my blog. The things I have done to increase my visibility in the search engines (SEO.) The funny thing is, the date I doubled was October 29th, pretty much exactly a year from the date I decided to blog daily.

Bottom line is this. I have blogged daily for over a year now. In that time you’ve had a slight glimpse into who I am and what I am all about. Through it all you are still here in ever growing numbers, and for that — I thank you!

Even today it’s not even 9:00 in the morning and nearly 200 of you have dropped by for breakfast. That’s pretty cool!

 

Blog Traffic

As a daily blogger I get to see what people read and don’t read, what they like and dislike. My blog stats are like little gauges into the psyche of the whole planet. (As you can see from my visitor map you literally are from all over the world.)

Some of the most popular posts have been:

Naked London Bike Ride (I still get 2-5 hits a day on that one)

Man Robs bank for $1

Is GE Helping China Compete Against Boeing

Cousin Eddie (Weirdo Wednesday – Feb 2, 2011)

Jeffrey Job-Killer

Rock and Roll Saturdays still get a lot of hits along the way.

So what do I take away from what I am seeing?

If I can ever write a blog about an unemployed and naked Randy Quaid robbing a bank in England and getting away on a bicycle, I should get about a gazillion hits!

On a side note I am getting a modest amount of daily traffic and I thank you for it.
