It’s All About Me

According to the wordpress.com stats helper monkeys, these metrics summarize my 2013 blogging output:

WP 2013 Numbers

Since conjuring up dorky, childish, clipart pictures seems to be my “strength“, it’s not surprising that I uploaded over twice as many pretentious pictures as blog posts.

The WP monkeys didn’t stop there. Those animals also tallied up my most-viewed posts of 2013:

WP 2013

Even though I don’t post on the topic as much as I do on other “stuff“, every single one of my top five “best sellers” explores some aspect of programming in C++ that piqued my interest. But that’s not surprising. Members of two sites with large C++ programmer followings, reddit.com and isocpp.com, decided to share links to my top five on those sites.

In addition to being a blathering blogger, I was fairly active on Twitter in 2013. The talented programmers at vizify.com gratuitously compiled a nice little video of my 2013 Twitter activity (you can see it here) and tallied up my most impactful tweets:

If wordpress.com and vizify.com can create synopses like these, just imagine what the NSA can do.

When a friend recently pointed me toward hupso.com, here’s what I discovered:

Hupso

As you can see, the Hupso.com and the WordPress.com stats aren’t even in the same ballpark. Since I believe my wordpress stats are more accurate, the bulldozer.com “franchise” is potentially worth $431 per year; or $36 per month (LOL!).

Oh well, I guess I can’t quit my day job. But that’s OK. Despite the anti-corpo rants I hoist on this blawg, I like my day job and I like the people I work with and I like the people I work for.

In any situation one finds themself in, it could always be better or it could always be worse. But when one only thinks in terms of  “it could always be better and can never be worse“, then there’s likely to be trouble on the horizon.

The Search For Accountability

May 23, 2012 3 comments

As I’ve said several times before, WordPress.com is a sweet blogging platform. One of the many metrics that the customer-and-product obsessed WordPress team provides to its users  is the list of terms that people have searched to land on your blog:

As you can see, the search term “accountability” dominates all others. WTF is up wit dat? It also looks like people want to learn more about “CSCIs, CSCs, and CSUs“. The funny ones are “lighten up francis“, “firing squad“,  and “disco dancer“. I’m humbled by the fact that some people searched for BD00 directly with “site:bulldozer00.com” and “bulldozer00“. lol.

So, when are you gonna expose yourself to the world and start blogging your thoughts, feelings, and opinions? One of the tag lines of the best boss I ever had was “don’t keep it a secret“. BD00 has internalized it with the addition of “no matter how much it hurtz“.
