Housekeeping thread

I’m headed to an out-of-town wedding today, so posting will be light… okay, near non-existent until Sunday evening.

Feel free to talk among yourselves until then.

Whatever blows your skirt up.

After looking at GTP‘s traffic numbers for the first quarter of this year, one thing’s obvious: changing defensive coordinators sure is good for business.  2013 was a record year for hits, but this year’s numbers are almost 400,000 ahead of last year at the same time.  It’s the offseason and traffic usually declines, so that’s a ridiculous bump.  It’s not like I’m doing anything differently (i.e., recruiting, which usually gets more attention than anything this time of year), either.

And it’s very similar to what I experienced in 2010, when Grantham was hired.  (From a percentage standpoint, the 2010 increase was bigger than 2014.)

I’ll give you guys credit for consistency.

A grateful blogger thanks you.

I’ve mentioned to you guys before that there’s a pretty predictable pattern to visitor traffic here.  February is typically the month when things drop off and stay that way until fall practice gears up.  And while there was a drop in hits last month from January, it was still by far the strongest February in the history of GTP – up almost 50% from the next best February.  (If that’s a gauge of everyone’s interest in the program, Richt and McGarity ought to be psyched.)

Even better, though, last month generated the most ad revenue I’ve ever earned.  And I just wanted to say how much I appreciate that.  I blog for fun, so in a sense, what I receive feels like found money (although I find it spends the same as any other type of green).  But it’s still nice.  So thanks for visiting and clicking.

Life intrudes.

Home internet access crash + trip to watch my old alma mater whip Tech in basketball = no posting today.

I’ll see if I can whip something up.  Don’t take it personally.

Getting your attention

It’s kind of funny – the top two months for traffic at the blog are last September (501,830 hits) and last month (498,805 hits).  One’s all about beating two top ten teams in the space of a couple of weeks and the other’s about replacing an underperforming defensive staff.

In other words, it’s all about hope, ain’t it?

GTP: 2013 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

About 1,000,000 people visit the Seattle Space Needle every year. This blog was viewed about 4,100,000 times in 2013. If it were the Space Needle, it would take about 4 years for that many people to see it.
