Today (2nd Nov 2013) my blog reached a milestone. Blog stats shows it has reached 100,000 hits & I am impressed with that. When I started my blog in April 2012, I never thought it would become this popular, but I was wrong 🙂 I started this blog as my study notes in preparation for my CCIE wireless exam. Within very short period, I realized it benefits lot of other people & that motivated me to keep it going. Even after I passed my lab exam on Aug 2013, I keep this blog running as it become the conduit between me & the rest of the world to communicate on wireless technology topics.
As always, starting was the difficult part & I have done few blog posts (18 in total) during initial 6 months. As my CCIE studies get serious , I have done more than 180 posts during 2013 & blog become more attractive.
My blog helped me to keep in touch with lots of other Network professionals. If my blog was not there, I may not know about these blokes. Now it is being followed by 103 users .
Here is daily hit-count and 931 was the maximum so far. It was the day after I passed my CCIE wireless lab exam (21st Aug 2013).
Here is the stats where my readers are coming from. Most readers based in USA & account for more than 30% of the hits during this period. India, Australia, Germany, UK, Canada, Sweden, France, Thailand & Greece are the rest of top 10 countries in the list.
As you can see most people interest to see “How many CCIEs in the world ?“. Then “Lightweigth to Autonomous AP conversion“, “Backup & Restore WLC config” post become number 2 & 3 respectively. Also QoS & Multicast related posts are dominating in the list. These two technologies are my favorites & I spent lots of time to do a good post about these. I think readers are like that.
“How to become a CCIE wireless ? ” also become a popular one which has got 1200 hits within first 3 months of its publication. I am sure next 100k hits won’t take that long based on the current trend.
I am thankful to every one of you read my blog & gave some encouragement during my study period (specially after failing my exam in 1st attempt in May 2013).
Thank you for reading my blog & good luck for your CCIE studies….
