Dave!It's been one year since I started Blogography, which makes today my first blogiversary. It seems kind of strange that I've continued with it as long as I have (my two previous attempts never lasted over 3 months). Most of the credit for this blog's longevity can be attributed to Adriaan Tijsseling and his amazing blogging tool "ecto for MacOS X" (formerly known as "Kung-Log"). Keeping a blog current can be quite a chore, but ecto makes it nearly effortless. Microsoft sufferers will be happy to know that ecto for Windows was just released last week... if it's only half as good as the Mac version, it'll still be amazing.

Another round of thanks should go out to Ben and Mena Trott, creator of the sweet Movable Type software that powers this blog. I can't wait to see what they've got planned for version 3.0!

Blogography was started so that I could keep friends up-to-date with what I was up to, and had an initial audience of 8 people. A bit more people are reading it now, and I've met some terrific new friends because of it. Here are some stats I've put together...

  • Number of entries: This is #359.
  • Average no. of visitors per week in April 2003: 74.
  • Average no. of visitors per week in April 2004: 1678.
  • Most popular entry: Who asked you bitch? (02 October, 2003).
  • Most infamous entry: Send in the clowns (20 February, 2004).
  • Most direct-linked entry: Lame! (02 March, 2004).
  • Most surprisingly political entry: Humanity (30 August, 2003).
  • Gratuitous Elizabeth Hurley plug: Elizabeth Hurley (31 August, 2003).
  • My favorite entry so far: Toothpaste (30 March, 2004).
  • A close second: Leather jackets (07 April, 2004).
  • Most popular search referral term: "Hard Rock Cafe."
  • Most popular Blogography search: "bitch" (huh?).
  • Most popular subject archive: Motorcycles.

So there you have it. Even I am interested to know if I'll make it another year.
