One Year of Blogging


So with one year of blogging under my belt all I have to say is how in the hell am I going to come up with 80,000 page views in May and no more slacking off in December. Bah Humbug. More blogging, less eggnog.

Seriously, thank you to everyone who has stopped by over the past year. I never anticipated really that anyone would much care about what I wrote when I started this. I’ve been surprised at what I thought would primarily be a vehicle for me to reflect out loud on things like Media Center and TiVo actually becoming something that has allowed me to interact with so many great people. When I started this blog I thought that there might be a handful of people out there who like to geek out about Media Center that might be interested. I didn’t know it would turn into something more than this for me which it has.

Thanks.

And so speaking of a fun game, as it’s been one year I thought I’d do some advanced Google searchs (yes I know it’s not at all scientific) restricting the results to the domain thomashawk.com to see what I’ve been talking about for the last year. I’m sure I’m going to miss lots of companies, people and stuff, so drop me a comment where the holes are:

Ok, I’m getting tired of this. I know I’ve missed some really obvious ones.

Update: George Hottelling asks how many posts I’ve done in the last year. The answer is, I have no clue. Unfortunately due to a bug, blogger cuts off at 606 and stops tracking (hopefully they get this fixed soon). But the answer is a lot. I post most every day and try to write as much original content as I can on my site.

    Well done, your blog is probably the best of all things digital without political/business taintings or agendas… honest down to earth writing and a skilled photographer… hope to be reading and looking for some years to come unless you make mega millions and decide to retire to some chateau in France 🙂

  2. It would be interesting to see the number of blog posts on that graph.

  3. As someone who’s just starting a new blog, it’s great to see stats for a good site such as yours! I hope I’ll get there too. Congrats on a great blog!
