Statistical Overview of 2013

Filed under: Site Stuff — Tags: — Brian Lutz @ 1:44 pm

Once again we have come to a new year, and as I typically do at this time of the year, it’s time for me to do my semi-annual statistical overview post (the other post typically gets posted on June 6th, which is the anniversary of when I started this Blog.  As usual, I post this mostly for my own benefit, so I can go back and look at this data later on and see where I’ve been and where I’m going.  As you can see, traffic overall continues to decline compared to where it has been in previous years, but still holds reasonably steady.  Since I long ago gave up any pretense of ever trying to make any money doing this type of thing this isn’t a big deal, although I do tend to think I write better when I’m writing for an audience, which is my main motivation for writing this Blog in the first place and continuing to do so.

For those of you who are still reading this and who continue to do so, I thank you once again for your continued visits to this Blog.  I have no intention of giving up on this anytime soon, and should have some interesting stuff coming up over the course of the next year.
