On February 20, 2006, I sat at Kava House and relaunched my personal blog. Prior to this, gillikin.org was nothing more than an e’er-shifting set of content-management systems, static HTML and butt-ugly white-on-black design. With the new launch, the site adopted WordPress as its blog engine and I’ve only had perhaps three major template changes.
In the last five years, I’ve managed to blog at least once each month. Current stats:
- 308 total posts
- 6 pages
- 11 categories
- 166 tags
- 199 comments
- 5,403 spam comments rejected by Akismet (99.82% accuracy)
- 534 visitors in the period 12/1/10 to 2/27/11, with 801 pageviews (Google Analytics)
- More than 200,000 words
A Mild Voice of Reason isn’t the most prolific blog on the market. But it does have the benefit of longevity.
Thanks to my readers for paying attention. Here’s to five more years!
