I'm a bit late with this as it happened a week or so ago, but I just noticed I've been prattling away on this blog for a year now.
Apropos of nothing, here's some mostly useless information about this blog.
- I've "published" 322 articles; I've got 14 in progress (some of the "in progress" is just a title and an idea).
- That's an accumulation of approximately 350000 words (!!).
- I've had almost 2000 comments! Crikey, that comes as a surprise.
- According to Google Analytics (which I installed about a week after I started), I've had 25000 people visit the blog.
- My busiest day was Mon 8 April this year. That day I knocked out four articles, which helps:
- A reader asks me: "CF10 for a new start up?". Answer: no
- Moving House... Mango Blog? (note that I have not moved it yet... I'm still on Blogspot)
- Now with comments on the mobile version
- onApplicationStart() will run whilst onApplicationEnd() is still underway
- The most viewed article - by far - is the article my mate Chris wrote on his adventures getting Railo working on his Raspberry Pi! I'm not proud, so I've had a bit of a laugh with him about that. I should get him to write more stuff. The next four most popular were:
- However the most +1`ed article was one of my own: What do I want to see in ColdFusion 11?
- The most commented-on article (with 41 comments) is - surprisingly - the very non-controversial "Unexpectedly performance differences between listFind() and arrayFind() in ColdFusion"; second to that have 40 comments, and was "Which CFML-oriented blogs do you read?"
- In January this year (so after the first six months), I was averaging 94 unique visitors per day; Over the most recent six months, it's about 150 per day. So not a huge amount of traffic still, but at least it's something. And it's generally building week by week, so that's a positive sign.
To close, I'd like to say special thanks to a few people whose participation in this blog has been helpful, interesting or thought-provoking. In no particular order, and it's certainly not an exhaustive list:
