My little blog (and it remains very little) has seen an odd trend the last few months.
When I started this in November or December of 2007 (I can’t even remember when), a good month saw maybe 50 hits. That changed in January 2009 when I spiked at 489 hits that month … one of my stories about Cubs fans was autolinked at Dallas Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban’s site, and the traffick rolled in. But things went back to normall. Through November 2010, I only had two months with over 200 visits (June ’09, November ’09). November of 2010 saw only 93 hits.
Since then, the trend in hits has been up … 236 in December 2010, 153 to start 2011, then 238, 400, 483, and May saw a run at the end that got me to 402 last night.
I have been looking at which posts draw the most traffic … many of the posts on teaching have been viewed the most … but many other posts have quite a few number of views as well.
My blog is still a humble little blog … 400 hits is nothing compared to even the moderately small dogs. I just took notice that there seem to now be a number of months that are seeing sustained viewership.
Maybe it is time to look into selling ad space?
