Checking the stats of the blog for the last 3 months, I noticed that the posts with more pageviews are referred from image searches. The images are from Salma Hayek in Ugly Betty, illustrations of Nathan Petrelli and Nikki from the Heroes TV Series, a test post for uploading images with the image of a Singapore girl, and a solar flare.
Why those images generate significant traffic?, I don’t know the answer but my guesses are:
- A lot of guys still have a crush with Salma Hayek even after his pregnancy, which is perfectly understandable.
- The second season of Heroes is premiering in other countries.
- I really don’t have an explanation to the picture of the girl and the solar flare.
Other post that generated some traffic is the papercraft model of Master Chief. I assume that the traffic of this post is because the popularity of the Halo series for the Xbox 360.
While looking at a library book scanned by Google, I found this image, the hand behind the scanner revealed.
Saw this at O’Reilly Radar, and other “hands” are at Book Patrol
Again several WEEKS passed without a new post in this blog.
Why?, well the main reason is procrastination, if we add to that the number of feeds on my google reader account, Digg, Techmeme, my day job, research for my projects and the time spent stuck on Mexico city traffic that would be a good excuse for not posting.
Everyday by the time I finished reading the most interesting stuff, I have some ideas for a good blog post. But I need to justify my paycheck so have to work in the stuff I was hired to do, so I write some ideas on Google Documents, make a mental note, a bookmark, or post something on my Tumblr. By the time I get home I work a little on my side projects, then do some research and suddenly it’s midnight and another day has passed without posting on the blog.
