Hard to believe that I have been blogging for 1 year already

Yesterday, October 21st marks the 1-year anniversary of this blog. When I started I was not sure what I would write about and if anyone would really care.

I still struggle with ideas. I want to keep the content focused and relevant. And I don’t want to repeat topics that so many others have already covered. I have tried to write about things that I had to learn the hard way to document them and to make it easier for the next person to learn the same thing.

Looking back over the last year I am amazed at the amount of traffic I have received. I didn’t expect much and my numbers are a mere drop in the bucket for other, more established, bloggers. But I am proud of them. In the last year have had 4838 page views from 3260 unique visitors. I would have been surprised to hit the 1000 mark when I started.

Here is a list of my Top 10 posts ranked by page views:

Article Title Page Views
Using PowerShell and EWS to monitor a mailbox 1520
Understanding Byte Arrays in PowerShell 1164
PowerShell error: NativeCommandFailed after installing KB3000850 — fixed! See KB3062960 314
Installing BMC’s ARAPI.NET library 310
Simple ARAPI.NET Query Example in C# 163
Script to list the data fields on a Remedy Form 148
Using ARAPI.NET from PowerShell 114
Fixing “The specified module could not be found. errors when using ARAPI.NET” 91
Working with certificates in PowerShell 76
Use PowerShell and EWS to find out who is sending you email 70

The top 2 articles are a bit surprising. I wrote those as NaNoWriMo entries for PowerShell.org last year and they appeared in their newsletter. I got a few incoming views from that but don’t know how many people read these from the newsletter and never visited my site. Nice to see so many hits.

So, if you are reading this, thank you for coming. I hope I have provided some value in the past year. If you have any suggestions for topics I could write about I am always interested.

Thanks for a great year!
