Another Monkey: Year One

May 14th marks the first anniversary of Another Monkey. It was created in the morning before I went to work, after I heard an NPR report about Blogger trying to encourage people to take up blogging. The very first entry was a placeholder under the title "Another monkey with a blog!" which simply contained the text "Coming soon..." The full text of "Another monkey with a blog!" was written later that day, after I got home from work.

Here is the Sitemeter graph of the first 12 months of visits (green) and page views (purple). I didn't set up my Sitemeter until the end of the first month, so it looks like I had zero visitors in May 2004. (The truth probably wasn't that far off.)

Another Monkey: Year One Posted by Hello

Recent increases in visits can probably be explained by the popularity of my site on search engine searches for "Cathy Baker" and "Monkey Riding Dog". And a feature of Blogger which used to send hordes of "next blog button" visitors my way every day seems to be working only sporadically of late, so I don't expect to equal April 2005's numbers for May 2005.

I was going to post this tomorrow, but I'm going to be out of town at an all-day rock festival (assuming it doesn't get rained out.) Thanks to everybody who has stopped by and read my half-crazed scribblings this past year! Y'all come back now, y'hear?
