//engtech is 5 and a half months old

Posted in Statistics and Navel Gazing, Technology by engtech on October 03, 2006

This is part of a series where I take a measurement of how this blog has grown (1.5 months, 3 months, 4 months). I wouldn’t be surprised if no one finds it as interesting as me, but I think it’s kind of neat to watch a blog grow from nothing to thousands of hits a day. Since my last post on the subject I was Dugg for the first time. Now I also show up on sites like TechMeme when I comment on a popular news story. Cool!
