Getting Analytic

Please excuse a little self-indulgence tonight…

I started blogging here in January 2009, posting pictures of my tech gadgets, bookcases, and Google Android apps. Then at the start of February I posted about a new music service I’d just heard about called Spotify. After using it for a few days, I had an idea to take some photos of my CD cases and created a simple imagemap so that I could click on a CD and have the album open in Spotify. I thought other Spotify users might want to do this, so I posted about My Spotify-powered CD collection on 18th Feb. The official Spotify blog picked up on this and since then The Pansentient League blog has had over 24,000 unique visitors (according to my Google Analytics page).

Currently around 4,000 people read this blog every month. Here’s what’s been popular:

Thanks to everyone who’s visited here and especially to everyone who has left a comment. Please let us know if there is anything Spotify-related you’d like to see featured here in the future!

Perhaps I’ll check this chart again in about a year or so… 😉
