TechnoLlama is now three years old, my first post to this blog was on October 20 2004. In that period of time I’ve written 812 post at an average 5,000 words per month, have infringed copyright hundreds of times by in-lining pictures, and drank Cthulhu knows how many mugs of coffee upon the completion of each post.
Since I started gathering statistics, the blog has had 53,335 unique visits, with 68,012 hits. The largest number of visits on one single day were 1,805 as a response to a story about Facebook. The number of readers has also been increasing, from just over 20 per day back in 2005, to an average 300 readers per day on a weekday, 200 of which subscribe via RSS or email.
The search engine impact of the blog has also gone up. In November 2004 there were 3 sites linking to the blog in Altavista. In April 2006 the figure had increased to 1,700; while in November 2006 there were 2,590 links to the blog. At the start of the month Altavista listed 11,800 links, while today there are 15,600 (the word I’ve been looking for in my mind is ‘momentum’). The Technorati impact appears to remain at an acceptable 57.
I really wanted to thank my readers (habitual and casual) for making it all worthwhile.
