366 days ago the Rainmen played their first ever game and blew out the short handed Boston Blizzard. 365 days ago I started this blog. My first post had zero comments and probably a dozen readers at most, since then I’ve cracked the 30,000 visitor mark. (oddly enough I actually had visitor 30 000 sometime this morning) That post demonstrates poor and innaccurate analysis and the first, and only, Dennis Hoffman joke to appear on this blog.
I started the blog because I went out looking for info on teams and players on the internet and found very little. What I did find was kind of hard to dig up, so I figured I’d pass it along to other people who may be interested so they didn’t have to go digging. I also wanted to create a place where people could talk about the team – not just talk trash like on OSC, but also to discuss what happens on the court. Pretty soon I started getting e-mails from people who had info they wanted spread around. It’s been fun and I am looking forward to another season of rumours, bitter comments, giving advice I am unqualified to give and trying to make information on minor league hoops just a tiny bit easier to find.
Here are some random facts about the first 12 months:
- 210 posts
- 839 comments
- 30, 065 hits
- Most read post.
- Top five most popular searches that people use to get to the blog: Rainmen blog (or some variation of), Eric Crookshank, Kadiri Richard, Lantrice Green, PBL Draft.
Here’s to another year of writing about minor league basketball on the internet instead of doing school work.
