Well that escalated quickly

Warning, this post is so meta even this acronym…

This blog just had it’s first month with more than 10,000 page-views.

Wanna guess where most of my traffic comes from? Ok, sure, most of my traffic comes from the Goog. That’s trivial. But where does most of the non-goog traffic come from?

By a long measure too. Years and years of all the other social channels, nary a bump — deleted. Bookface? nary a bump… I think about 7 (s e v e n) people click through from Bookface.

I urge you to click over and join my growing email list before Facebook implodes entirely ;)

Small b blogging is learning to write and think with the network. Small b blogging is writing content designed for small deliberate audiences and showing it to them. Small b blogging is deliberately chasing interesting ideas over pageviews and scale. An attempt at genuine connection vs the gloss and polish and mass market of most “content marketing”.

…and of course, my having just linked to him is one the affect he’s talking about (among several others.)

Zooming out: This reminds me to get back to writing. Several months ago, I began an intentional hiatus from writing every day… and I really miss it. Hop to it, Craig!

1,000+

Meta: This is post number 1,001.

I’m glad I took the time to post this stuff. Aside from my obvious use as a soap-box, it’s a constant source of wonderful memories as I dredge up old, and capture new photography, as well as a place for me to ruminate.

Mmmmmmmmm, first use of ruminate.

Bit of a backlog, sorry

Just in case anyone is actually consciously paying attention to what I post: I’ve a bit of a backlog of things to post, and I’m making an effort to catch up. So there’s going to be something like a post a day, for like, well, 150 days or so…

:^P
