Happy Blog Anniversary!

Yes – it was late May 2012 when I decided it might be a good idea to start a blog to capture the various and sundry useful information I was giving out to friends.

In the past year I’ve written 118 posts, which have been viewed 10,288 times, with 82 legitimate comments left… and 14,060 spam comments! I strongly suggest you set up Akismet or another spam filtering service if you run a blog, as it caught 99.91% of these.

By far the biggest boost to my readership came last September, when my article Why I Volunteered To Play With Amanda Palmer was reposted by Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman, then linked in other articles about the controversy. To this day I still get several visits a week from people clicking an external link from one of those references. The next most highly viewed post, on making Origami paper cups, was reblogged on a few Tumblr sites.

So if you’ve joined me recently, here are the most-viewed posts from the last 12 months:
