my blog's stats
many people have asked, so here are the stats for my blog. you'll notice the huge spike around feburary 9th; i attribute that to news.com and slashdot. the little traffic bump in january was when i had originally unpublished and republished my blog entries. at the time, i was amazed at getting a few thousand hits - little did i know a few weeks later, i would be getting 100k hits.
surprisingly, i had to go to a third party site, statcounter, to get web metrics; blogger doesn't have any sort of functionality built-in. i had to take a supplied snippet of code and put it my blogger template manually. while this is not a problem for tech savvy users, i'd imagine average users might get frustrated while trying to add a simple counter to her blog.
also, blogger only has built-in support for atom feeds and doesn't give you stats on that either.
i want stats for my blog! i hope the blogger team is reading :)
btw, i'm posting this entry from flickr (and they are hosting the graphic above too). i'd heard a lot of great things about flickr and so far, i've been impressed. cool stuff, props to ludicorp!
