My first year of blogging

After my first year of blogging I’ve decided to run through all the entries, statistics and some of my favorite blogs. These are the results:

1. I wrote 124 blog entries during the year. I usually write at 6AM before going to work.

2. As per blog-city statistics, during the month of May my blog had about 20K hits. I’m not exactly sure what the “hit ” means, but the number of them steadily grows.

3. Some people have subscribed to my blog so they receieve an email every time I publish an entry. I do not know who they are – subscriptions are anonymous

4. The following blog entry set up the record on the number of reads (I’m not sure why though): Java failure can lead to death

5. And these are my 10 blog entries that are a like more than others:

Why People in the USA are Polite and Smiley

My Upcoming vacation: JavaOne

Interviewing techniques: Give a second chance

Sun Microsystems must hire me. I’ll wait till they complete the announced layoffs…

Why do I blog? Because I like. I usually have my own opinion on everything that’s happening in the software industry, and since there are plenty of news every day, I just put my opinion on “paper ” without thinking twice. Some bloggers would say that they blog “to give back to the community “. What a BS! I do it for myself. Once in a while I write to promote my books, training, or whatever else. But I need you guys to read my blog. Please do so and leave your comments: I read each of them.

Have a great weekend!
