The TransLate blog just hit 80,000 page views (see 20,000, 30,000, 40,000, 50,000, 60,000, and 70,000 for historical context). The period of November 26th, 2009 to April 1, 2010 is 17 weeks, which represents a slow pace with a few search engine hits and a few spikes when someone new discovers the blog. There hasn’t been a lot to write about, at least regarding transsexual transition, and maybe that is a signal that it’s time to move on. I don’t know. Here are some statistics and lists that graphically show the recent trends.
Here’s a visual look at the blog since its inception, month-by-month, the initial slow growth coinciding with a slow coming out process, followed by the lofty peaks of April (5076 views that month) as I disclosed my transsexual transition plans to everyone, followed by a lull in May and another set of peaks probably coinciding with my facial feminization surgery in late June 2008. There was a little hump of interest in July – September, after which the blog has seen fairly steady volume of between 2000 and 3000 views per month. There’s an uptick in July and August as I write about my GRS in Trinidad (who doesn’t like to read about surgery, right?), and then there hasn’t been a lot of action since then.
And here’s a graph of the week-by-week look, which WordPress picks up in mid- to late-2009.
Finally, just for fun, this third chart is a time-series graph covering just the past 30 days’ of stats.
