A Week of Stats

I started this blog back on Friday, 2/11, and since it's now been a little over a week, I thought it'd be interesting to share some stats.

  • There has been a total of 111 pageviews, not including my own.
  • The most popular post so far has been "How Did It All Start?" (the second post), with 25 pageviews.  Next comes "Why a Blog?" (the first post) with nine pageviews, and then "Game World Inspirations: History" with nine pageviews. All of the remaining posts have three or fewer pageviews.
  • There have been three referring URLs: Hotmail, Google, and, which bills itself as "a cool place where bloggers play games."
  • Out of the 111 pageviews, 106 of them have come from the USA.  Interestingly, there have been three from Canada, one from Malaysia, and one from South Africa.
  • 70% of readers prefer to use Firefox as their browser, followed by 10% for Safari, 9% chrome, 9% Internet Exploder, and <1% Mobile.
  • 82% of readers are using the Windows Operating System, 10% use Linux, 3% Mac, 1% other Unix systems, and <1% iPad.  If you're thinking that doesn't add up to 100%, you're right, but I don't know where to find the missing 3%.
  • To date, we have one follower (thanks, Jeff!)

So what does all of this mean?  Well, nothing much, other than I think I need to do a better job of promoting the blog to get some more readers and hopefully generate some more comments. 

It's also nice to know that gaming and geek culture is alive and well in Malaysia and South Africa. 


  1. Sounds more like it means that Martin discovered Google Analytics...

  2. I use Google Analytics for my campaign website because it's kind of built it, but for blog I just used the Stats tab in blogspot. It was easier than trying to input the code in order to be able to track the blog through Google Analytics.
