A view on the first year of my blog

It's now one year since I've started this blog.  I haven't done as much blogging as I set out to do, but that was to be expected; overall there are now 27 posts (28 if you count this one), 19 of which have actual technical content.  I consider this actually pretty good, for my standards.  The trick of course is to make next year better!  I'll have to juggle that with my new life in Rennes, but it's a challenge I can rise up to!

Popularity-wise this blog has not done too badly either.  Blogger reports about 1864 hits to date; the most popular article being about my Amiga 1000 mod - though if taken together, the SIDschield articles are the main draw (this is counting individual article hits only - blogger can't show tag requests AFAICT).  The SIDshield is something I definitively will continue working on, but I think I will focus more on VHDL once I'm in Rennes.  I think I will shift my focus on the research and MATLAB related content in the future.

Weirdly, I have only ever received one comment, on Further adventures with Mercurial, which is now effectively out of date (the relevant packages on the latest Ubuntu releases are at sufficiently high versions).  It's a pity; any blog writer really likes comments, it makes one feel relevant. :-)

Onwards to the next year of posting!
