The past few six months have seen a lot of changes here at scienceblogs.com. A new wave of bloggers came in, super readers were recruited, channel photos posted, and lots of other cool stuff, but one of the biggest changes is the amount of traffic. According to a release that popped in my e-mail yesterday, traffic to ScienceBlogs shot up to about 14 million visits during the first six months of 2008, an all-time high and 60% increase over the same time period in 2007.
I really am proud to be a part of ScienceBlogs. I truly consider blogging to be one of the most valuable things that I do and writing here has benefitted me tremendously. This blog has allowed me to actually contribute something to the ongoing conversation about science and I don’t think that I would be able to list a number of my accomplishments on my cv had I not been invited to join here. I’m still a few months away from my 1st blogiversary as a member of Sb, but given all that has happened so far I am certainly exicted to see what the future brings.
