My first big bump in readership happened in April 2012. My one-year mark playing EVE Online, and also the month I discovered Reddit. I had a couple CCP bumps that month as well (linkage via the official EVE Online Twitter and Facebook accounts.) The numbers fell off after that, but I remained consistently at double the readership I had the previous year. It was looking like I'd maybe plateaued. Which was fine. I had a collection of readers. Many of them. Which is a great thing for anyone writing a blog. If we write words, we want them read.
Then December 2012 happened. The old April 2012 record was broken. Again, I thought, this is going to be hard to top.
This January has been stellar. Not a single CCP bump, yet I'm averaging over 2000 pageviews per day. And not a single day that dropped below 1200 pageviews. Again, I'm thinking, this is going to be very hard to top going forward. I'm not quite sure how to account for January, yet. I don't think I've done anything in any particularly different way.
So, to all the people that read my words. Those that enjoy them. Those that hate them. Thank you. I wouldn't have this platform without your interest. Going forward, I'll endeavour to improve. Those that enjoy my style, I hope you'll enjoy it more. Those that hate my style, well, you'll probably continue to hate, but that's okay. Dissent is as important as assent.
Thank you everybody. Thank you for reading.
