Yesterday, this here blog cleared its first year. At this point last year, I had just finished punching up my research into Singapore’s new CPL, and that article remains the most viewed piece of content here yet.
A big thanks to all who frequent here; seriously, thank you.
Some numbers, then, from the first year:
- 234 individual posts
- 315 glorious comments
- 15,211 visits from 7,674 visitors
- a pretty consistent 55% return visitor rate
- 22,922 pageviews for 1.51 average pages/visit
- 574 downloads of keekercast episodes
Top content from Volume I:
- CPL: Valencia still shareholder, but “no operational role” (1,516) The firestarter.
- Hexagon grids: coordinate systems and distance calculations (1,076) For some reason, this post got some serious Google juice behind it.
- Keekercast #6: Ben ‘Fishstix’ Goldhaber (449) This episode hits the podium thanks to some decent reddit traffic
- $200,000 paid to CPL 2007 World in Conflict winners (396) I honestly expected to find this in the #2 spot, as it was the other ‘big story’ I was able to break this year.
- Keekercast #4: Patrick ‘Chobopeon’ O’neill (348) Quite honestly this is my favorite of the bunch so far, I and plan to catch back up with him in September.
- The Watchability Problem (336) Some rich discussion on this topic; it spawned two more posts on the subject and was reposted to ESFI.
- Mainstream or Bust? (278) Getting nitpicked by djWheat over twitter on an ancillary point without addressing the thesis was fun stuff.
- ESEA renegs on ‘high quality, well produced, live stream’ for Season 7 LAN (192) Well they did. ESEA forums referral traffic: activate!
- Some early NA Star League reactions (175) Some douchebags from wellplayed.org flipped their shit.
- Schumacher: CPL has no legal obligation, may make good on prize debts anyway (157) The official reaction to the top post rounds it out.
