Census Day

Overly Excited Llama is overly excited about the fact that it's been three years since the last website census, and the fact that I can remember this time period is astounding, considering how hard it is to get me to the dentist at least once a year.

As you can see from the chart below, visitor counts to the URI! Zone have declined only minimally over the past three years, in spite of the hyper-competitive web of today which offers so many other ways to waste time on the Internet, from Animals Being Dicks to all of the websites where every article starts with a number in the title. I'm not sure what the spike and decline in 2009 was all about -- perhaps people left after my marriage because they preferred sites with a higher ratio of ho's and a lower ratio of grocers' apostrophes.

It is also more difficult to track visits since the bulk of visitors now read the URI! Zone through a feed reader. According to the stats (and stats don't lie), I have 17 readers using Google Reader to consume this website, in spite of Google's insistence that Google Reader is a dead project.

In order to coax lurkers out of the woodwork, I am having another incentive-based census. Click on the "comments" link below to:

  • Say hello
  • Link to your blog or Twitter feed
  • Say something funny, clownfish

A randomly selected commenter will be chosen to win a $10 gift certificate to Amazon.com for their troubles. Hooray! I'll leave this post open for a couple weeks to catch all of the folks that no longer visit every day.

(If you are a feeder, you'll need to click through to the actual website to post).
