Six Years of Blogging

Hey everyone! Another year has passed and it's been 7 years since I've been blogging here at! In this post I want to summarize this year's statistics.

See the one year of blogging, two years of blogging, three years of blogging, four years of blogging, five years of blogging, and six years of blogging for the previous years' statistics.

Let's start this year's stats with traffic:

Traffic statistics from Google Analytics for Jul 1, 2013 - Jun 30, 2014.

This year: 784,992 uniques. 983,890 visits. 1,376,933 page views.
Last year: 903,468 uniques. 1,191,596 visits. 1,695,544 page views.
Delta: -118,476 unqiues. -207,706 visits. -318,611 page views.

I haven't been blogging much at all and that explains the negative delta. I've about 200 articles in drafts so stay tuned for some quality articles soon!

Feedburner stats: At 16,500 rss subscribers this year. Last year 16,343. Delta 157. subscribe.

Feedburner is a dead service now, so the rss subscriber count has become a meaningless, random number that changes daily. It fluctuates around 16,500 subscribers.

Github stats: At 1700 followers this year. Last year 1400. Delta +300. follow me.

Twitter stats: At 4130 followers this year. Last year 3774. Delta +356. follow me.

Total articles written: 20. Top 10 articles:

That's all folks! Now let's have some 7 year birthday cake,

And let's meet for the cake next year again! See you!

Congratulations on 7 years and thanks for visiting my blog! I blog about software development too at -- although I'm on the QA/delivery side and go at it from that angle.

Congratulations! I stumbled upon your blog today because I was looking for good material on RECURSIVE regular expressions which you had written about previously, then got curious. In these 7 years you covered a lot of ground. Most original bloggers from "back then" are not around anymore. Hopefully you make another three years to celebrate the tenth! Your captcha is also very clever and betrays the self-made developer - most automatic breakers probably don't know what to do.

Congratulations. It's really hard to write, but the important thing is maintaining your high quality
