Two years ;)

It feels like I just posted the One year blog anniversary post, and today it's already two years. I'm really glad that after so much blogging I still have a lot of ideas to write about, and what's more important, that people find it interesting to read and comment. I love coments, so keep them coming! :)

One year ago I wrote that it would be cool to have 1000 visitors monthly - I achieved that about two weeks ago, when I published The ultimate guide to prim twisting. It was posted on the official Second Life blog (thank you, Torley!), on Massively (thank you, Tateru!) and on many personal blogs of SL residents (thank you, thank you, thank you!). It quickly brought more than 6000 unique visitors to my blog in just 14 days! That's fantastic!

Let me now share some statistics.

I've got about 100 regular followers that I know about (there might be more, I only know of those who read my blog through Google Reader and the 'follow thingie' on Blogger). As to daily visits on the blog, after the wave of 6000 new readers that I mentioned earlier in this post, the visits stabilized at 200 unique visitors daily.

I know it might not stay this way forever, but why not make things a bit challenging? ;) I'm setting a goal for this blogging year to keep (or increase) the 200 visitors daily. It won't be easy but I hope you guys will help me with this goal by coming here often and commenting my posts a lot :)

A bit more diversified than last year, which is great!

Finally, I'd like to thank everyone who contributed to this blog through commenting and sending me IMs, items and other fun stuff in-world. You, my dear readers, make all this writing worthwhile :)

Time for some cake! Cheers!

    Congrats! :-) I'm one of your new fans who first discovered your blog through the prim-twisting post, and I can promise you I'll be one of the 200 (or more) who will stay.

    Congratulations on your second anniversary. That is an impressive jump indeed.
    Don't forget those who follow you on bloglines, although we are a mere 7.

    Thanks, JMB :) That jump was a big surprise for me - I was happy when a friend told me about Massively and then Torley put the tutorial on the official blog, but I didn't think at the time it could bring that many visitors :) It feels great though :)

    Thanks for letting me know about my followers on Bloglines - I never used this service, so I didn't know ;)
