Site Statistics and Blog Banter Archeology

For the curious, here is what my site statistics overview looks like:
Since I've been using Google Analytics in May 2009, I average below 20,000 page views per month with that spike in January 2011 coming from when I hosted the guest fiction from CCP Headfirst.

I also took a second to find the list of participants from the very first Blog Banter Crazy Kinux hosted back on October 29, 2008:

The four bolded one are the blogs with posts since September 2011. Some blogs went silent just last summer and others are gone entirely or haven't posted in years.

Food for thought.


  1. Nice to see I'm throwing some significant traffic your way. I always feel weird talking about numbers, tbh I'm not sure why. Sad how many blogs are gone though, some of my all-time favorites are in that list.

  2. I used to do a monthly roundup but also felt weird about it. I figured a one off is ok this time ;)

  3. Oh sure, I didn't say that to make you feel bad m8. It probably is extremely interesting to other bloggers and even non-bloggers.

  4. I understand the weird feeling regarding posting such stats as it may just feel like bragging or belittling to smaller bloggers (Oh, God! My blog is such a failure when compared to these numbers.), but I find this very interesting to see. It's also gives hope to us smaller bloggers of one day not being such a failure.
