Post stats after one month

I have done zero real advertising about this site other then Facebook, setting up google sitemaps and mentioning it to friends. No pingbacks, trackbacks or putting up my url anywhere really. Some how, however, I managed to get 185 unique hits for the month of October. That is without my hits from the three locations I would go to it from and without any bots. That’s right, 185 people went to my website and they weren’t me!

Here is a rundown of the top 10 most popular pages. These are not unique hits but represent the total number of hits per page.

Page Number of visits
My RSS feed 6348 (wow, a lot of you added me to your rss viewer)
Home Page 1126

Assert Yourself! 13
T1, T2, T3, T4, TResult, Hut, Hut, Hike 13
xaml attach WPF – ContentProperty post 7
C# Category 6

So how did people even find the site? Well, google really. Here is a partial list of google terms that led to this site:

61 different keyphrases Number to site from Search
get mouse position to screen in wpf 6
hibernate upsert 4
formatexception 3

wpf contentproperty 3
cannot implicitly convert type system.linq.iorderedenumerable 2
contentproperty wpf 2
postgres insertorupdate 2
c# sql server upsert 2
upsert postgresql 2
Other phrases 53

Anyways, I’d like to have one significant post a week and one trivial post a week. As I saw with October that’s not an easy task but I think I’m up for the challenge. I don’t profess to be an expert on anything. Anywhere I might sound like an expert I try to link to a real expert. I’m just trying to pass on the knowledge I gain in the form of ramblings on developing in the Windows(tm MS i’m sure) world.

My next step is to try and generate some contriversey. I think my posts so far have been too “tutorial” in nature. I’ll try to keep those going since I have fun writing them but I think some topics intented to spawn debate need to be next. So any recommendations from those of you who stop by on a regular basis would be nice. I have allowed anonymous comments so tell me how you really feel. Of course I reserve the right to delete and edit posts as necessary but don’t let that stop you 🙂

Thanks to all of you that stop by and don’t be afraid to say, “Hi!” (and yes, i mean literally 🙂
