CrazyKinux's Musing: Looking back at August 2007

Well August has come and gone, and what a month this was. The Post-a-day challenge is now over, and though I know I wasn't able to do exactly that (that is, make at least one post everyday), I still did achieve my second goal, which was to increase my overall posts for the month. I haven't started looking at all the other blogs which I challenged, but I'll get to it in a post or two (patience young Wilhelm!), and post the winner!

Now, let's have a look at August shall we!

  • 26 posts
  • 1 poll
  • 11,326 pageviews
  • 7000 visitors
  • 1,255 returning visitors
If we compare that to July we're looking at an increase of 44% in page views, 29% in visitors and 45% in returning visitors. During that month my Technorati Authority went from 5 to 23, and I managed to come up below the million mark on Alexa Rank - Mmm, come up below sounds so weird!

One of the highlights of this month was getting one of my posts - My extensive EVE Online wish list - mentioned and reviewed by the charming fellows of Warp Drive Active in Podcast #8. Thanks to Urban Mungral and fellow Canadian, Winterblink for there review. Your critique is much appreciated!

So back to our statistic, I wish I could tell you which post brought in the most hits, but since I'm on Blogger, I don't have that functionality. If you're using this same blogging platform and know of a way to get these stats, then please let me know.

I think that I've managed to find a good balance between playing EVE and reporting about it. I still owe you a few posts on my Myrmidon and I promise to do so as soon as possible. So here's to September and more quality posts.
