318,478, to be exact. That’s how many visitors lindsayfincher.com received in 2008. That’s 26,539 visitors per month and 870 per day. Not bad for a blog about nothing.
Yes, it’s Excel. Shutup.
Unfortunately, I’ve never really tracked data from past years so I have no idea whether the number of visitors has risen or declined. I’ve owned this domain since September 2000 and have been using blogging software to update this site since 2001, when I installed NewsPro because I was too lazy to manually edit the HTML and upload it via FTP. Since then, readership has grown from my parents and friends to people who don’t even know me. The most heavily trafficked parts of this site are definitely my travel posts, and I usually get around 4-5 e-mails a week from random people who have travel questions or just wanted to let me know they liked the site. Although it might take me a while to respond to the e-mails, I definitely appreciate them.
I’m going to try and make more of an effort to update this site with actual content, i.e., past travel stories and what not, and hopefully 2009 will bring some international travel.
Wow, a week in California really threw me off my regular posting schedule (ok, I never had one to begin with). I’ve got a ton of stuff to write about, but have been clearing out my RSS reader, catching up on e-mail, working out, playing Wii Mario Kart, and doing various other things. I also won 2/3 games of beer pong on New Year’s Eve. Not bad, huh? And tonight I am going to see Gogol Bordello at the 9:30 Club. OH DEAR GOD I LOVE GOGOL BORDELLO.
