In case you haven’t guessed it, yup, I’m talking about this very blog hitting a new milestone and hitting over 3,000 page views a month! I know this doesn’t sound like much for a “serious” website, but for something like this blog it IS a lot! Even more so as a lot more of the traffic nowadays seems to hit my technical articles — though, granted, there’s still quite a bit of traffic from people (my mates I guess?) looking at my pictures from what I can see…

Also, as you might have figured out, I’ve filtered out all the spiders and the spam comments — which is obviously just irrelevant traffic — here’s an idea of how many spiders hit the blog on a monthly basis though:
As they say: small step for man … 😉 My next challenge is to hit 5k a month — hopefully soon I’ll publish some similar stats about that!
