This is my 700th blog post and so it seemed like a good time to aggregate and reflect on some metadata.
The blogs received on average 79 page views a day and over its three year life I've had 87,657 page views. Over the past 120 days, however, I've had well over 100 page views a day. I set as a goal (and I am not really sure why I have goals for things like this) to have 100 page views a day; now that I have that, I think I'll aim for 1000 page views a week. I've had 373 comments over the lifetime of the blog. My bounce rate is a respectable 75.8%. The average time on site is 1 minute 13 seconds and visitors look at 1.50 pages.
65% of my visitors are first time visitors and this has held pretty steady over the past couple of years. That means that 35% of you like what you read enough to come back! What's pretty cool is that over 20% of my visitors return more than 9 times.
Since my first post, I've had visitors from 149 countries with the US, Greece, the UK, Canada, Italy, Australia, France, Germany, Cyprus and Denmark as the top 10.
I also have had visitors from all 50 states with California, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Illinois, Texas, Florida, and New Jersey as the top 10.
