Back in July I switched to Dreamhost for my web hosting, which I’ve been mighty happy with. I thought I’d give you a little half-year-in-review from the other side of the blog, just for funs. (The Dreamhost stats feature isn’t fantastic, but it’ll do.)
Here are the “Distinct hosts served” for each month. This is about as close as I can get to unique visitors:
Wow! What happened in November? Looks like the linkage I got from this. From what I can tell, that may have been the most viewed post of the year.
So let’s see what gained eyeballs in other months.
For July it looks like the 31st is the big day, but all I talk about there is a PS2 game. I think probably those hits came from when “When Fangirls Attack!” linked my monthly Previews post.
I got a bunch of hits on September 21. They’re going here, and again, this was a post that a fair number of other people linked.
There are a fair amount of hits around October 30th, and it looks like at that point someone else linked September’s big hit. My review of an awful comic book got some attention because I posted a link to it on BoardGameGeek.
My controversial theory was the winner in December. This one got some bonus hits thanks to other folks linking it. (I actually tried to pimp it a little, something I don’t often do.)
There were 418 posts this year (more or less). I missed posting on 18 days. Top categories were Comics (43 posts), Politics (42), Misc (41), and Images (39). Only 31 posts were about games, but I’m sure it seemed like a lot more.
For your part, 959 comments were posted. Dave T. was the chattiest, with 85 comments. CounterProductive piped up 59 times, and Lanf had his say on 52 occasions. Blasterhappy, pronoblem, Ken Lowery, Todd Derscheid, Sean, Kurt, and Topher rounded out the top 10 (excluding me, at #2, with 70 comments of my own.)
Top commented posts were:
Musical Zendo (35 comments)
Mornington Crescent, Anyone? (18 comments)
Fourteen and Fourteen (18 comments)
The Geek Phrasebook (18 comments)
And finally, here are some search phrases that got unfortunate people to my site in 2007:
- hermione thong
- wolf uvula
- boobs comics
- bee totem
- centaur name generator
- free labia galleries
- ikki tousen her boobs
- wolf uvula (three more in December)
Thanks for a fun 2007, folks!
