Yes, this is one of those anniversary posts every blog conjures up each year. It may not be that special for most but for me, I write this post for my own satisfaction. Since we all know that three years in anime blogging is really something to be proud of.
First, let me share some of my blog stats with you. And before you ask, no, I am not showing my total hits because I missed my 50k mark and I haven’t reach 100k just yet so I’ll just keep the numbers to myself.
My blog has amazingly steady increase in viewer counts over time. I have no clear explanation to that. Some of my regular referrers, blogroll exchange and some popular post partly contribute to the stat but not entirely. I think it is simply because I have been around long enough.
Ironically, two of my top posts in terms of page view are not purely anime post. I obviously received those hits because of the popularity of the movie mentioned in those posts. Until this very day, I am still baffled by the shear amount of people visiting my ‘Cheshire Cat’ post. Come on!, that post was just about me ranting about…nothing in particular and that movie was barely good!
On the other hand, if I rank my post according to comment count, the list turns out very differently;
1. Which anime blogger has the most awesome avatar? (76 comments)
2. Avatar, Real Drive and Nausicaa: a common theme from different world and time (54 comments)
3. What are the best anime you have NEVER seen? (53 comments)
4.Read for battle: Canne is participating the Aniblog Tourney! (45 comments)
5.Graduation Ceremony: I would rather stay home watching anime and blogging (45 comments)
6. Last post of 2009 (40 comments)
7. Trapped in the past: how many gateway anime do we need, exactly? (38 comments)
None of my regular anime review posts which are the staple of my blog made it into the list. Maybe I should put more question marks into my post title so that they would draw more comments >_<
Ths must be the dullest and most generic search term list any anime blogger could imagine. I suppose I should write something more morally ambiguous or more crazy.
And finally, I must thank all of you who visit, read and share your thoughts on my blog. Some of whom have been around from the very beginning such as Yi, Glo, zzeroparticle, Kitsune and Ryan A. Some of whom came into the picture later this year. And some showed up only once in a while but shared such amazing responses and opinions. I thank you all. I had a lot of fun and I know that I am not alone. ^^
See you again in my next post!
