Blog readership statistics.

I am not sure if this is good or bad:

feedburner

On one hand, I have more sub­scribers than ev­er, even con­sid­er­ing when this blog was in plan­etkde (BTW: maybe I should add my pyqt feed there again? Nah, I don't qual­i­fy as "ac­tive KDE con­trib­u­tor")

The dip in the last three monts was be­cause I just post­ed noth­ing, and now I am post­ing again, it's do­ing well.

On the oth­er hand, I am at 50-­some sub­scriber­s, which is a bit pa­thet­ic for a blog that has ex­ist­ed for over 9 years ;-)

On the grip­ping hand (Lar­ry Niv­en FTW!) I am hav­ing more fun with the blog than I had in quite a while, so I would post even if noone read it.

And in case you are won­der­ing what that peak of over 6000 reach (the av­er­age is un­der 100!) it's this. That post had over 12000 vis­i­tors. My sec­ond most pop­u­lar sto­ry had on­ly 3800.

analytics

Here's the most pop­u­lar con­tent in the last 2 years or so, se­lect­ed from 783 posts (784 with this one) and 47 longer sto­ries:

  1. 12228 vis­i­­tors: Win­­dows: My eX­Pe­ri­ence

    So I wan­t­ed to see what win­­dows looked like. Don't wor­ry, I feel bet­ter now.

  2. 3797 vis­i­­tors: Mak­ing Lin­ux sys­tems that don't suck. Part II

    A rant on cron and at. I nev­er imag­ined this would be num­ber 2.

  3. 2968 vis­i­­tors: BOP: Ball Ori­en­t­ed pro­­gram­ming

    I am rather proud of this one: a pyqt-based graph­i­­cal, an­i­­mat­ed in­­ter­preter for FLIP, a lan­guage based on balls :-)

  4. 2888 vis­i­­tors: Good News: Lin­ux gives life to old hard­ware. Bad News: Maybe in some cas­es it should­n't.

    Sil­­ly, yes, but a cool pic­­ture :-)

  5. 1870 vis­i­­tors: Py­­Cel­l­s: The Python Spread­­Sheet re­­dux

    My sec­ond or third at­tempt at writ­ing a toy spread­­sheet us­ing python. I have been at it for about 5 years, ap­­par­en­t­­ly.

    This is pop­u­lar... even when the code it de­scribes is based on a com­­plete­­ly bro­ken li­brary!

  6. 1841 vis­i­­tors: Squid au­then­ti­­ca­­tion via POP or IMAP

    This was al­ready about 4 years old when I start­ed coun­t­ing, so I have no idea how many vis­i­­tors it re­al­­ly had. It is a handy scrip­t, I still use it some­­times!

  7. 1813 vis­i­­tors: The Lin­ux Boot­ing Process Un­veiled

    I re­al­­ly ex­pec­t­ed this one to be much high­­er. It's even linked from wikipedi­a! Ev­ery day it has 2 or 3 hit­s. Then again, the first 3 years are not be­ing coun­t­ed ;-)

  8. 1706 vis­i­­tors: Queue Man­age­­ment for Qmail

    While the tool it in­­tro­­duces is lame nowa­­days, the ideas are sound, and it ex­­plains a re­al prob­lem.

  9. 1548 vis­i­­tors: Cus­­tom wid­gets us­ing PyQt

    Very ob­­so­lete, noone should read that.

  10. 1505 vis­i­­tors: How to make your own dis­­tro in 3 not-­­so sim­­ple steps

    Oh, this one. It is wrong. It gives bad ad­vice. Yet noone seems to no­tice ;-) Not my best idea, not my best ef­­fort, still get email about it ev­ery month or so.
