March 31st means it is blog’iversary time again. I find it hard to believe nine years have flown by since that first tentative post. To everyone, everywhere, thanks for visiting, reading and subscribing!
Last year broke the million visit mark and in spite of reduced posting from me this year, this is a hobby!, visits held up.
Visits & Subscribers:
The weekly “blog beat” is fairly constant apart from a blip caused by over 300 visits to one post, of only two I made, in April.
In spite of RSS and feed technology not being talked about much and, soon, Google actively discouraging readers subscriptions are still steadily growing.
As usual the US dominates but nice to see Australasia third behind Northern Europe in the regional list.
Browser & Operating System:
It’s interesting to watch this over the years even if it doesn’t really mean much. Compared to 2012 IE lost 4% and Firefox was also down 5%. iOS Safari also rose to 2.2% from 0.68% last year.
The winner was Chrome up 6% and, for the first time on my blog, overtaking IE.
Windows 8 arrived in my platform/browser stats and, perhaps more surprising, someone out there is still using Windows 98!
Thanks for reading, see you in year ten!
