30,000

Working It Out, my blog covering my work with SharePoint and my observations about maintaining a career, hit a milestone today in a year marked by milestones.

Today I hit 30,000 total page views (though admittedly a small proportion of those page views – 881 to be exact – were generated by spammers).

Last year, my post “Publish an InfoPath Form to Multiple SharePoint Sites” passed my previous top post (“Tweaking IE 8“) and hit 1,000 page views.  So far this year, four more posts have topped 1,000 hits, and if things continue at their current pace, six more pages will join them before the end of the year.  And four of the posts in the 1K club will move up to to 2,000 before year’s end.

Beyond page views on individual posts, other milestones were passed this year.  On June 24, my total page views for 2011 surpassed my total for all of 2010.  I started my third year of blogging on May 16th, and by July 7th I had more hits in the first 53 days of year three than in all 365 days of year one. 

I expect that by August 15, my total page views for 2011 will exceed my totals for 2010 and 2009 combined.

Before Christmas, at roughly 220 days into year three, I will exceed year two’s total.

Next year, the milestones will continue to fly by.  By day 290 of year three (early March of 2012) I will have exceeded years one and two combined.

Now to work on the next post!

He recently served as Secretary on the Austin Software Process Improvement Network Board of Directors, but left the post to look for a mythical creature he’s heard spoken of, called “sleep”…
