The First 100,000 Visits
I've been blogging for a long time, longer than I've owned this domain or had Google Analytics. Â Beyond public blogging I also keep a paper journal, and in fact cart an entire box of my old journals with me whenever I move (which has been often). Â I also wrote more than 500 blog posts on the Twilio blog, and have guest posted for TechCrunch.
Recently this blog has been enjoying some popularity but I hadn't looked very closely at the stats. Â I fired up Google Analytics and it looks like I very recently crossed 100,000 all time visitors -- from August 2008 to present -- which is a bit of a milestone. Â My blog archives go back to September 2007, when I started working for the first tech startup of my life: Pelago. Â It was also a month after I married Kevin.
