First milestone - 5000 hits!!!!

The first milestone has been reached......5000 page hits on the 47th day. Thanks to everyone of you, for enabling me to make it so soon.

Long way to go, isn't it?

When I look back, it is surprising to note that I took this decision 7 weeks ago. Ok.. a separate series of postings will follow on this experience. Let me reserve my thoughts for those posts, which are likely to appear soon.

At this juncture, I would like to thank Jammy & Kaps, who prompted/inspired me to start this blog. Thanks to Thennavan, Chakra, Twin-Gemini, Balaji, Senthil, Narayanan, அடேங்கப்பா!!! Prabhu as well, for the suggestions/links extended in the initial days of blogging. I just wanted to share some of my observations on the statistics recorded. Just extend your views as well...

a) Maximum hits
The maximum no. of hits were received for the following posts.
-- 4600 carats diamond - Thanks to Google & the hoax-loving visitors.
-- Nayanthara - Simbu in Vallavan - Nayan's craze is going high after the controversial ad.
-- Anna University permission for more Pvt. Engg colleges (Post-1 & Post-2 - Thanks to Teakada)
-- Other Cine-searches were mostly on actresses, navel etc., (due to my Oxymorons post and nothing else!!!)

b) Categorisation
If I categorise all my 97 posts during this period, the most no.of comments received from fellow bloggers were for Films & Tamil posts. Eventhough, some mentioned that they couldn't comment on cine posts, it seems the majority likes to comment on those subjects. I love to blog on all, eventhough I am keeping my interests intact on films.

Films / Tv - 34 posts
Tamil - 11 posts
General - 49 posts
Personal - 3 posts

c) Visitor attitude
I observed that 60% of the visitors stay here only for less than 10 secs. It seems, those who are coming here thru search engines are getting disappointed, when they don't get what they search for. (I couldn't help them). Another observation is that 75% of the hits are thru first time visitors (thru other blogs & search engines) and the balance are from those who have become regulars nowadays. I wish the % changes in future, to my favour.

Once again, thank you all to keep this going....Still, it is a long way to go and search for something in that open sky, as in the picture above.

Congrats Ram. When is the treat? The harsh reality is that only a miniscule percent of the visitors actually comment ...the others are like transit passengers. Suggest you maintain your film niche and also top it up with Tamil kavithai, DBI and your insights on current events etc. By doing so you can please a diverse set of people.

Hello, I noticed an interest in music and movie download sites on your blog .I just started a blog about the ethical aspects of downloading for free from the Internet, and I love to start a discussion about it on my blog.So if anyone wants to give his/her opinion feel free to do so.
