Blog tech update

Just installed and got Akismet working on the blog: spam is down about 90%. Amazing. I never felt the need for it because WordPress’ built-in spam filter was so effective, but its a definite time-saver.

This month has also seen the highest traffic ever on this blog – up to 3.8GB of traffic (about triple what I normally get), despite a bandwidth saving blog reskinning. I hope you’re all enjoying it!

I’ve also climbed up Google’s PageRank and broken the top 200,000 in Technorati.

I’m not sure why any of this matters, but it seems that when you have access to statistics about yourself, you start to find them compelling…
