Two recent postings were mentioned on blogs with much higher readership than mine, which provides an opportunity to measure the impulse response of the blog to an external simulus.
It looks like an external blog mention is good for 50 to 60 hours of fame. After that, the search engines take over again.
You can tell nearly everybody arrives here from search engines, because the monthly view increases slightly more than linearly with the number of posts.
I’d love to believe that’s the start of exponential growth, but that’s just not going to happen!
Speaking of search engines, here are the top terms…
|arduino pwm frequency||235|
|triple alert redemption||83|
|arduino command line||79|
|arduino fast pwm||66|
|cold solder joint||66|
|cold solder joints||47|
Obviously, Arduino, electronics, and machine-shop topics are hot.
Who would have imagined, however, that so many people search the Internet to find pix of staghorn beetles? As of right now, though, Google gives my post two of the four image results and puts it on the first page. Evidently I give good writeup. Now, if only I were selling something, huh?
The most-viewed pages…

The Alpha-Geek Clock isn’t representative, due to the sudden peak that slapped it to the top of the list. It’s nice to know that folks are finding (and, presumably, using) the tech info that I put together.
A tip o’ the engineer’s cap to the two dozen of you who keep track of goings-on through the RSS feed. These posts are mostly for my own amusement and record-keeping, but I trust you find something useful every now and again.
A Happy New Year to one & all… and keep on building stuff in your shop!
