The day I hit 40

Yesterday, my site statistics reached 40,000 hits.

Whew! It was a long journey. Took almost one whole year to reach 40,000. Here are some milestones / highlights in Technobiography stats:
  • Totals as of July 29 2005:
    * Page Loads : 40,176
    * Unique Visitors : 22,587
    * First Time Visitors : 18,686
    * Returning Visitors : 3,901
  • Daily averages:
    * Page Load : 184
    * Unique Visitors : 114
    * First Time Visitors : 96
    * Returning Visitors : 19
  • Most hits in one day: 529 hits, October 26, 2004
    (the day Technobiography was featured on Inq7.net)
What thoughts shall I share on the day I hit 40? Well, I've become more conscious of statistics lately. Mostly because of my renewed interest with Google Adsense revenues. My interest was renewed after reading an article of Abe about a blogger earning US$14,000+ from blogging in more than 20 blogs. Will I ever hit 14, ya think? Will I ever hit US$100 per month, like abe does? Ah, time to day dream and *do* again ...

It's also especially nice when I see some visitors going through my archives, going through my favorite articles, going through many links within Technobiography. It send me the message that some people like what I write.

I haven't had any hate mail naman. So I don't think I've been stepping on other people's toes. But I did get some creepy texts. And I blogged about it as "therapy" to relieve me of my horrors.

And of course, I'm delighted to get word from people around the world, most especially those who are interested in my work in m-commerce for microfinance. In fact, I've had a couple of phone calls from the US and another one this morning asking me about my research. Neat, huh? ;-)

Curious visitors

I get most of my hits from search engines. Some of the curious searches that turn up on Technobiography:

  • ano pa ba? ... madagdagan nga ito next time ...
