10 Years

15 04 2017

Another year has passed for my little blog, or rather the blog at this current domain and space, and now we welcome the big 10 year anniversary. Yeah I actually persisted this for a decade, with an entry every day though sometimes I pull from my reserves rather than blogging one entry every day. Well I guess on average I still write more than a single entry per day, at least in recent years. Since I have stopped my search terms series (actually it’s because it had too little data to do on a more frequent basis), there will be a small section on it after the “usual” statistics update. Hopefully there will be something to show after a year’s worth of data. So let’s start with the main stats:

’16-’17 statistics:
– Day with most visits: 2 April 2017 (98)
– Week with most visits: March 27 – April 2 2017 (137)
– Month with most visits: June 2016 (135)
– Average words written (more like published) per day: 269.73
– Average number of visits per day: 7.04
– Average number of comments per day: 0
– Average number of spam per day: 5.02

There is yet again a slight increase in number of words published, probably helped by the fact that there were some reserve entries being thrown up recently due to insufficient fighting game videos entries to go around but yeah I guess it’s still pretty low in that sense.

Space utilisation wise, it seems to be just a little over 6%, so I guess I really won’t have to worry about running out of space. I definitely wouldn’t live long enough to use all of it even if WordPress does survive the test of time for that long. Seems like my reserves activities are not sufficient to increase the usage even though I thought I have sort of drafted more entries in recent years. Hmm, maybe picture compression has improved slightly or whatever. Lol. Yeah well, let’s move on to some search terms. Let’s see what we have (to be honest, I haven’t looked at it). Hmm, on 2nd thoughts, after looking at the results, I think I will probably scrap this idea for good, unless the traffic on this blog increases to something substantial enough to have some sort of decent results that’s worth to do some random rambling about. Ah well, so I guess that’s it for this year’s update. Will an 11th entry come in 1 year’s time? Stay tuned to find out…

9 Years

15 04 2016

Again, I am writing this again during the night, something I shouldn’t really be doing on an eve of a work day, but I thought I should just keep this annual tradition while I am still at it. So 9 years ago, this version of my blog was born and amazingly, I am still at it and going forth it will be the 10th year. As usual, there will be some statistics provided, which I will mostly follow the format from last year though I don’t expect it to be anything fantastic.

’15-’16 statistics:
– Day with most visits: 20 December 2015 (141)
– Week with most visits: 14-20 December 2015 (242)
– Month with most visits: June 2015 (613)
– Average words written (more like published) per day: 254.05
– Average number of visits per day: 11.7
– Average number of comments per day: 0
– Average number of spam per day: 2.57

Seems likes there is a slight increase in the average words published per day but it remains low thanks to the majority stake of fighting game videos which usually doesn’t have too much text per entry. But I guess the reserves have been increasing in terms of entry count and I guess there are much more words written in those than the ones published. You will see them in time to come, I guess. Traffic into my blog is falling, which I suppose is contributed by the fact that it is not exactly very informative nor interesting.

After all these years, the space utilisation is still only at a mere 5% despite my “increase” in entry drafts which involves a picture/poster. It still looks very sufficient to last me though, since it’ll take nearly to the end of the 22nd century at this rate to finish it. Surely I won’t be around by then, even if WordPress still is. I guess I will be pretty much continuing what I have been doing all these while, perhaps making some changes here and there but I don’t expect those changes, if any, to be very great. I will probably see my reserves grow in the next year as well. Here’s to an unknown number of years ahead… See ya





Search Terms Volume #38

1 01 2016

Well, it is time for another quarterly update, but after pondering about it the last couple of days, this might actually be the last in its series, or perhaps I will change it to a yearly entry. For starters, I am too lazy to manipulate data to get the country stats, and for another, the traffic to this blog is decreasing anyway which has a direct impact on the amount of search terms will show up anyway. Either way, it will probably be a long time time, if ever, before you see #39 I guess. Anyhow, here’s some terms to look at

1.

Yes, you read that right. It’s a blank search, or at least I am shown blank text. And it even has 3 hits. Wow, this is gotta be the rarest I’ve seen thus far.

2. 7 match gyromancer
make 7 gem match gyromancer game

Hmm, looks like it’s back again. Perhaps the recent humble bundle helped in this aspect?

3. rumble fish 2 move list
the rumble fish 2 move list
rumblefish 2 moves list

While I don’t play this anymore, good to see that my efforts put in are still being sought after even today.

Hmm, the rest are pretty uninteresting (to me), so I guess that’s it for this time. No country stats (too damn lazy). Anyhow, it’s 2016 – a brand new year. Here’s to having another 365 entries to come for the rest of the calendar year.
