Nine Years of Publishing Fun

Posted Monday, March 30th, 2015 06:27 pm GMT -5 in Housekeeping, Mini Posts

Today is the ninth anniversary of the first post here at 7minutemiles.com. As I tend to do every year, here are the latest stats (based on server logs, not Google Analytics):

  • 5,866 Posts
  • 191 Pages
  • 73,896 unique visitors in 2014
  • 1,248,423 pages displayed

This past year saw a few tweaks here and there – added the last nine Instagram photos to the bottom of the front page, edited and rewrote the biography, made some changes to my résumé, added a new coursework page (with transcripts) and changed the format of the list of lists page. Wanted to add a video post type, but still haven’t quite figured out how to best do that between the smaller, three-column front page and the single post format that appears when you click on a story.

I’ve also been experimenting with options to make the theme “mobile-friendly” per Google’s new guidelines, but 1) the easiest method (the WPtouch plugin) doesn’t work well with my content and 2) I really don’t care all that much what Google thinks about my personal site. That said, I do like some of the responsive design things other people are doing, so I’ll probably make it work eventually.

As always, thanks for visiting!
