The Blue Skunk Blog is now three years old.
In 36 months, there have been 787 posts (averaging of 22 posts a month) on the Skunk. In July 2006 I posted only 3 times and in May 2008 I posted 36 times.
Over the past year (August 2007 to July 2008) these are the stats generated by my blog host:
|Page Views / Month (Avg)||50,489|
|Unique Visitors / Month (Avg)||21,197|
|Robot Hits / Month (Avg)||40,968|
Or in a more graphical format:
The Skunk has 2,213 subscribers and GooglePage rank of 5/10. The Technorati authority rating is 183 and ranking is 28,458. I am not sure the significance of any of these numbers and I hope I haven't embarrassed myself. I've never gone out of my way to try to increase readership or ranking. As I've opined before, the Blue Skunk is the boutique not the Wal-Mart of blogs, appealing to only the most intelligent and discriminating of readers. (Deep enough for ya?)
Enough navel gazing. The important thing is that this entire experiment is just about as much fun as one can have with one's clothes on. Onward and upward.
