Here’s to me for passing the 100th Post mark! And to cheeky old broads! photo source
This is my 101st post! I started the Biodork blog in December 2009, and started posting (nearly) daily on December 31st. WordPress has amazing stats, so with very little work on my part I can show you what’s been going on in the way of traffic for my blog:
|Views:||1,559 (not including me!)|
|Avg Views Per Day:||14|
|Busiest Day:||4/26/10 with 84 Views!|
The Busiest Day – February 26th with 84 Views – came right after I published WTF, Barb Davis White? *singsong* I think someone’s google alert was tickled! Let’s find out…
From My Tag cloud, I can see that the majority of my posts have something to do with Humor, followed closely by Science, Political, Dinkus-ness, Adventure and Ubergeek. Yup…that sounds about right!
The blog statistics are fun and all, but they really aren’t – and can’t be – the reason to blog long-term. At least not for me, someone who blogs as a hobby. This is a repost of a comment I left on a friend’s blog about a month ago, and I think it’s fitting to re-copy it here, today:
My reasons for blogging are constantly evolving, but the one underlying purpose for me to write something new is to remind myself that the world is full of wonderful, exciting things. My blog posts are snapshots in time – I can go back and see what caught my attention on any given day. My blog posts do also have the secondary purposes of sharing myself with my friends and family and to pass on “important” new stories now and then, but the main reason I write is always for myself. And trust me, with an average view rate of 10-20 views per day…it’s gotta be that way.
Thank you blogosphere for providing me hours of free entertainment and a place to share and record my thoughts! And I have to say…after four months on WordPress, I have been – and continue to be – pretty durn happy with this blogging site. So thank you WordPress, also!
Enough of this crap – On to a funny picture:
I had this for lunch yesterday:
Smart Food + Not Smart Food = Zero Net Calorie Gain or Loss, right?
