2009: The Year In Blogging

Despite my lousy blogging habits in 2009 the blog continued to grow and I almost doubled my amount of unique viewers over the year. Below is a graph of my total number of absolute unique readers which totaled 206,881 over the year. The drop in late June was due to a serverside attack.

The top ten referring sites to Artifacting (with search engines removed) during 2009 were:
1. Yahoo Answers
2. Boing Boing
3. Facebook
4. Dethroner
5. Stumbleupon
6. Twitter
7. Reddit
8. Serious Eats
9. ui.
10. Sensible Erection

I found it surprising that there wasn’t a single personal blog on the list this year. Are personal blogs going the way of the ghost?
