Happy Birthday, Superdrivel!

The G20 hits 50,000 miles

Speaking of birthdays, the van turned over its 50,000th mile recently. It's doing great, though we both almost died while I took this picture.

Celebrations all around! Superdrivel turned 1 on October 24th.  Of course, I didn’t really start bloggin’ on it till January, and even then it was just to whine about blogging.

DID SOMEONE SAY PARTY FAVORS? HOW ABOUT SOME STATS?!!

  • 33 posts (prior to this one) – that’s 25% more than every other week!
  • 64 non-spam comments (almost 2 per post!)
  • 69 spam comments, all but one of them blocked automatically by Akismet.
  • Top post (by pageviews) – the iron gym is great (~1200 views)
  • Top post (by comments) – Is Gentoo dying? (14 comments)
  • Top search topics (paraphrased) – “iron gym”, “the a-team van“, “gentoo”, and “benjamins
  • 28 Google Reader subscribers – I missed the FeedBurner boat, so it might be even more.
    • I ❤ all of you. I would feel pretty silly if no one read this stuff.

Lately, I’ve also been averaging around 20 hits per day to the blog in general. Not that traffic is important, just wanted to let you know you’re not completely alone in this remote corner of the intermist.

PARTY IN THE COMMENTS! Now’s your chance to tell me how to be a better blogger/friend/person!
