One year later...

     Well everyone, we've made it. One full year after I registered and started the domain I am still here and building up a web community. Though of course I plan to continue to expand and grow, let's take a look back on the year, shall we?
     So it all started in March, but to be honest, NOTHING HAPPENED IN MARCH. In fact, there were only a total of 1900 hits (not visitors) and 1000 of those hits came from me updating my blog. That, was a bad month. Probably because the site was just getting started... Well I only managed to pick up 5,206 hits in April, and with double the amount of blog entries that was double the amount of hits from me. In other words only about 3000 hits, but hey, it's still only my first full month! As far as blogging went, it was decent: I wrote a fairly good story about my trip to Alaska, offered people blogs which no one accepted, and ranted about little things that annoyed me. Sure, it wasn't great yet, but it was good.
     This was kinda where my spirits plummeted. The month of May brought me FEWER HITS. I only 2536! That was almost as bad as my first half-month! And this time 1100 hits were from me! OH NO! The reason behind that one may be in combination with a lack of "fruitful" posts on my blog. There was an interesting factoid here or there, but overall, it BLEW. So that kind of turned people off. The hits started climbing back up the next month... and then went back down after that. There wasn't much happening due to the fact that I basically stopped posting over the summer. So no one bothered to visit.
     The next month seems a tad bit more promising, August! The month of my birthday! Well... It felt more promising at 5828 hits, but a full 3623 of said hits came from me again. This was because I was testing a CGI proxy, which now gets practically no hits, but was once very well used (or maybe abused) by its users. Blogging started back up again that month, and it reveled three things: I can't draw very well, I have a serious addiction to Anime, and that I may very well be mentally unstable.
     The hits from September were very similar to august: a lot of hits, a lot from me. But since the school year had just started back up again, there was a new crop of readers for my blog and I started writing more interesting articles and stories, as well as a sure sign that I've cracked. The next two months, things stayed very much like september: getting better at writing, and starting to experiment with javascript. It also gave way to my Bush Article. Pretty much after that it's been as it is today. I'd write more, but it's late, REAL LATE. So I have to get some sleep for school tommorow. Anyway, Happy Birthday Kitkorp! May you and scuzzstuff live on in harmony! Posted by Kickmyassman at March 17, 2005 11:55 PM

Happy Birthday Kitkorp! I bought you some "bandwidth" and "RAM"! If "bandwidth" means "Love" and "RAM" means "hope for the future! Keep on truckin', Kitkorp! You remind me of a lone vigilante, but I'm not sure why. Maybe I just wanter to write "lone vigilante". Anyway, all the best for the future, and I promise to stop by as long as you are around.
Best wishes,

Las felicitaciones a alcanzar un año repleto. Sólo parece ayer más un buncha otros días que vi primero su sitio. Diría 'vigilante solitario' los trabajo bastante bien.

Or, if you prefer, in short English--CONGRATS.


P.S. I decided on a present. Some possible additions for

Porn isn't abuse, its "alternative web surfing."

Congratulations Kit on your ongoing self-made status.
