When I’m camping in Sweden and Lapland, after fighting with an elk over the possession of my trunks, I will inevitably think about Life, the Universe, and Anything Related to My Blog.
In the next two weeks this blog will be kept fresh and interesting with guest posts from other authors. I've been able to find eight people kind enough to supply me with original articles, to make sure you people won’t be bored.
Quite coincidentally, this blog post happens to be my 297th. And my next post will be the 306th, so I think the timing is right for the regular x00th reflection, which is becoming sort of a tradition on my blog…
Blog post #200 was on January 2 of this year. Since that time this blog has generated a quarter of a million page views, with 175 thousand unique visits. The spikes in the graph are all caused by the usual suspects: my various top 100 blog posts (see below).
Apart from Google, the most traffic to this blog was sent by various software development sites, like Reddit, DZone, InfoQ and StackOverflow. As for the social networks, I am quite surprised to see StumbleUpon ranked higher than Delicious and Twitter. But the most unexpected entry on this list is Scott Berkun's blog. Thank you, Scott!
The number of feed readers (RSS subscribers) has doubled to around 4,000. It was 2,000 on January 2. (Note: FeedBurner's estimates fluctuates every week, with a dip in every weekend.)
As I said, the most popular articles on my blog are all the lists that I make. Whether it is lists of blogs, lists of books, lists of Twitter accounts, or lists of interview questions, you guys just can't get enough of them. Well, neither can I. So we're a good match…
