Showing my stats – my rock star status has come to an end

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.
