About a week after starting my blog, I realized it was tough to come up with ideas. Yes, this should have been self-evident, but I’m beginning to realize that perhaps I’m not quite as bright as originally hoped.
On a whim, I posted the process of making my boy’s Halloween costume – Steve from Minecraft. I posted the Illustrator files of both Steve and Creeper, not thinking much about it.
For the first few days, my stats continued to be single digits. I remember hitting 12 and thinking, “Hot damn, I’m finally catching fire.”
I followed up the original post with my attempt to build a Diamond Sword and hit 32 views. Interest waned and I went down to 22, then 15. On October 8, something crazy happened. I surpassed 200 views. What? Really? It was just squares on a box.
My steady climb continued until October 30 when I hit the momentous number of 1387 views. 1387 human beings took the time to look at something I had to say. It was intoxicating. Another blog even linked to me, accounting for about 100 hits.
And today I crashed back down to Earth. However, I would like to thank the 109 people for taking a moment out of their day to see what I had to say.
Now I just have to think of something else to talk about.
