100th post – some stats

This post marks the 100th logged to my blog.  I figured given that WordPress vastly improved the stats capabilities recently, I’d share some of my findings.

1) Android is an extremely hot topic.  Of the 100 posts on the site, *3* posts, all of which are centered on Android, comprise 35% of my traffic. (3708 + 1094 + 927 = 5729 out of 16353 total views).

2) Getting on Reddit causes a huge spike in traffic (surprise surprise).  The single busiest day resulted from a link on Reddit; the post got a total of 73 views in all the rest of the year; a single day of Reddit exposure led to 268 views.

The top ten posts, in order of page views:

PostView count

Android: Dialog box tutorial 3,708
Android – ItemizedOverlay + ArrayIndexOu 1,094
Android – OverlayItem.setMarker(Drawable 927
R – Sorting a data frame by the contents 799
My ten essential Mac programs 724
How to make a solar system: Introduction 410
Args4j library for parsing Java command 376
An introduction to Scala 359
Clear your cache in NetBeans 355
Code bloat and its inevitability in Java 340

Nothing too earthshattering, but I definitely plan to add more posts about Android in the future.  I’ve been developing some more applications for that platform at work, so I should have some insights to share with you all.  I appreciate feedback from you the reader, so please let me know – what would you like to see more of?  Less of?

    The Lure requests fewer meta posts.

    We got more in a day from being #2 on Google. Also, the Lure disagrees with itself re: the desirability of meta posts.

    How do you make your blog so imminently navigable?

      Are you being sarcastic or not re: navigability of the site?

        Not sarcastic. My biggest problem with the Lure is it is not very roaming friendly. Also, I like how you have a much wider space for comments and how the threaded comments work. Perhaps you simply use a better template. My only readability advice is not to use the same divider line that signifies a new post within the text of a post. Very distracting.
