Anniversary: 2 years of Blogging!

In General by Michael SheehanLeave a Comment

I can’t believe that I have been blogging for (only) two years. Tomorrow will be the 2 year anniversary of this incredibly information-filled post. I think that I have progressed a lot with the quality of my posts. Blogging has really become a passion for me, as I tried to quickly articulate on Blog Action Day but it goes further back than that. I really have one major goal in mind when I blog, to provide some type of information to someone that can help them in some way. In fact, my 2nd blog post was a tip on how to fix a printing issue with HTML emails.


I haven’t really taken the time to analyze my blog stats or anything so I guess that now is as good of a time as any to do so. It seems that I installed Google Analytics in September 22nd, 2006, so I have almost a full year without stats. But I DO have a full year with stats, however, Google seems much lower than other stats I have (e.g., from and the WP-Stats plugin). Not that anyone is really interested or not but here are some tidbits of stats:


The good news is, my site is starting to trend up in volume as more and more people are discovering it. This snapshot from Google Analytics tells a good story:


Statcounter shows my year to date trending pretty well as well (note that this stat was taken the 2nd day of November to Nov. stats are low):

Anyway, thought that I would toot my own horn here. 2 years is a pretty long time. I think I will have many more to come and hopefully my posts will become even more informative, useful and refined as time progresses.
