Traffic to the blog has been pretty good this year. I try not to let that influence what I write but because it is a sure way to stop me from writing but I also can’t help looking at graphs and numbers. The biggest year for this blog was 2018 and a lot of that was due to unpalatable nonsense (rather than my preferred genre of palatable nonsense) plus a nice award nomination. I think 2021 will exceed 2018 at the current rate and before this week it had already exceeded the other years. I mention all this as context for this graph of daily traffic:
Those previous columns used to look really tall but they all got downscaled after the link from Whatever. That’s the power of Scalzi’s blog, which probably is one of the few of the most notable personal blogs from the golden age of blogs still operating as a personal blog.
Anyway, the new traffic is nice.
