A quick thanks to everyone who visited YBNBY in the last year - hopefully you'll continue to return in 2006. I don't want to get all self indulgent and do a long in-depth analysis of all our highs and lows over the year, but allow me one quick stat...
When we launched YBNBY back in January 2005, we had no real idea if we'd end the year with an audience or not. We ended up getting a whole lot more readers than I think we could have predicted. Above is a graph that charts our page views over the year.
Probably the funniest thing about this is my comment made in June. That was the month we ran our interview with KC Armstrong, and got mentioned in the NY Post, and it more than doubled our traffic from the previous month. I turned to Jellio at the time and said “You realize of course, that we'll never see traffic as high as this again”, and he nodded knowingly.
That's us - the wise old men and women of YBNBY. Happy New Year everyone.
