I started this blog 4 years ago today. As recently noted, it was an outgrowth, sort of, from working with Web Matrix. Web Matrix has of course grown up to become Visual Web Developer. The blog was going to be a simple little project -- hey, how hard could it be? For all its subsequent complexity, tho (e.g, did I really need to implement trackbacks?), it's been a heck of a learning tool for me.
Here are some stats, primarily for my own amusement:
- Entries: 1,668
- Entries/day: 1.14. My average is sinking.
- Comments: 1,426
- Word count: 467,246 (using my imperfect word counter)
- Average entry size: 280 (not counting code)
- Hits: 778,889
- Hits/day: 533
- Most popular post: Custom bi-directional sorting in GridView (12,527 hits). In fact, of the top 25 posts, 17 are about ASP.NET, and another 3 are probably the results of ASP.NET searches. If I want more traffic (do I?), I know what I should be writing about.
