This website is sort of like my 4th child – a 7-year-old that is surpassing all of my expectations (no pressure for my other 3 kids! 🙂 ). Every day I marvel at the number of people who use the site to help them work more efficiently, finding answers to code questions that are tough to get anywhere else. When someone can’t find the answer on iDigHardware, they email, call, or text me to get individual help, and I often turn these questions and answers into new blog posts. Considering the number of new questions that arise and the code changes that occur every 3 years or so, it seems like I’ll never run out of material.
I take a look at my stats daily, to make sure I’m still writing about what you want to read about. With a resource like this, it’s hard to put a number on success or to calculate the ROI, but it’s exciting to see the increase in the quantity of visits (always double-digit growth!), which countries visitors are accessing the site from (217!*), and how much time people are spending on the site (more than 1,100 hours last month!).
When I reviewed the year-end stats for 2015, I noticed that iDigHardware was approaching some important lifetime milestones, and I’m extremely excited to report that all of the following milestones have now been surpassed!
