Over this last weekend I discovered where my hosting service stashed my server logs. They keep changing boxes on me in an ongoing search for the ideal platform. After downloading the log archive, I ran them thru AWSTATS to see if there’s anything going on here.
In Sept 2004, the first month of the new server, there were 171 visitors to the host. That dropped to 134 in October.
October was when I really started the CogDiss blog with WordPress.
In Nov 2004, the site had 495 visitors. The CogDiss main page got just over 1100 views.
As of Sunday March 27th, we had 1380 visitors for the month. The CogDiss blog main page was viewed over 3200 times! Terra Incognita’s main page got 1440 views.
And that’s just this month!
I don’t have a break down of page by unique visitor — or if I do, I haven’t found it in AWSTATS yet. But that still looks like the readership for CogDiss has about tripled in four months.
There’s only one thing I can say to that.
