Blog annual stats (v2019)

This year i have started using Matomo to track visits and have noticed same IP addresses going often every few hours to the same pages. So, stats are a bit skewed by such bots, but in a grand scheme probably are not affected that much. Also, Matomo masks true IP and shows last part as 0.0, so i can’t tell if these are truly the same IPs and of course it is not possible to block them without knowing a real IP. The 2019 stats:

  • Posted 110 entries (+38):
    • Technology – 88 (+32), although there were less Windows Insider posts, but i’ve explored various other topics like cloud services, Android, statistics, also started posting Microsoft 365 news a few times per month;
    • Books – 7 (+7), big increase, hope to keep reading as much and posting about it;
    • Board Games – 7 (+1);
    • Next Game – 6 (+2), reviewed 1 game more than last year;
    • Movies – 3 (-4), watched less movies during Kinopavasaris festival and in general, also not always posting about it, in total probably watched 5 movies this year;
    • General – 3 (+1);
    • Top 10 – 1 (-);
    • Artwork – 1 (+1).
  • Sadly, no comments received this year.

The list of most popular posts (by page views last year):

As last year, my home page received a lot of views also (actually the same number as my number one post – 463). WSUS tag also generated 116 views and Technology category 71. I have updated my About page this year adding a photo and more information about myself. It received 49 views 🙂 Some other posts generated a bit lower view numbers, like Android Q news, a post about Free Teams. The most viewed Microsoft 365 news post was from July 30.
