One year ago today, I started this blog. Since, it has served as an outlet for my random yet sometimes cohesive forays into all sorts of coding adventures. I’ve blogged about several languages including Python, Java, C++ and of course AS3. I’ve touched on subjects ranging from form generators for the Android platform, to maze solving with Python and OpenGL, to sound synthesis with the Flash Player. It’s been a blast. I’ve made new friends and found new areas of interest because of them.
So far I’ve written a total of 42 posts, with an average of 2.3 comments per post. Among the most popular have been the Android tutorials. Though my interest in the Android platform has diminished, I still receive e-mails all the time about those early posts and reply when I can.
The readership has steadily increased in the past year. As you can see in the graph below, the site’s first month received about 300 views and in February of this year it surpassed 7,000 views! According to Google Reader, there are approximately 28 people subscribed to the site’s RSS Feed.
Highlights from the past year include the M.O.R.T. Sequencer/Synthesizer being featured in the AudioSilver blog. The site was also mentioned by both Andre Michelle & Richard Devine, two of my music-tech-geek heroes, on Twitter.
The past year of blogging has been excellent. It has provided me equally healthy doses of focus and distraction and allowed me to share my findings along the way.
I’m amped for yet another year of it.
Thanks for reading!
