I’d like to say it is blog’iversary time again but I’m about a month late posting this as the anniversary was back on Saturday March 31st. I knew this post would be late but will never forget why.
I was on a bicycle heading for Cape Reinga, New Zealand’s northern tip, and was happy to complete that with a bicycle circumnavigation of the iconic (in NZ at least) lighthouse. Things have been a little slow here recently due to the travel but it’s time to finish a whole bunch of Autodesk University (yes still), 2013 Release and Autodesk 360 draft posts. That’s just the CAD stuff!
I find it hard to believe eight years have flown by since that first tentative post. To everyone, everywhere, thanks for visiting, reading and subscribing!
Last year I wondered if 2011-12 would make me a millionaire (visit) blogger? Turns out that happened some time on September 11th 2011.
Visits & Subscribers:
The weekly “blog beat” is fairly constant apart from a blip caused by over 300 visits to one post on January 25. Quite why the “Love the ribbon” post from 2009 attracted that I don’t know!
In spite of RSS and feed technology not being talked about much use in applications has subscriptions steadily growing.
As always the US dominates but that big spot over Auckland on the city map can’t just be me checking posts? (Google supposedly filters out that stuff)
Browser & Operating System:
It’s interesting to watch this over the years even if it doesn’t really mean much. Compared to 2011 IE lost 6.3% but I was surprised to see Firefox also down 4.75%. The winner was Chrome up 7.9%. Maybe the browser battle will settle down with three fairly equal contenders fighting for our eyeballs & clicks. Probably better than anyone dominating. iPhone/Safari doubled, but not really significant numbers, and iPad arrived on my platform/browser stats. Interesting to see both beaten by Firefox running on Linux! CAD Geeks?
