We are at the close of another year here at routedinterface.com. Lets take a moment to reflect on the blog and personal achievements from 2015;
Starting with personal, the biggest thing that happened was I relocated my family to sunny Atlanta, GA. I left my previous company to take on a Network Architect role with a large beverage company. Needless to say going from a media company like Viacom to a company like my new one, for me at least was a real culture shock. Next, I finally finished my CCNP Data Center. This was an uphill battle in and of itself, but I am glad I saw it through. I was named a Cisco Champion for 2015. This I can honestly say came as a shock but it is a good group of people to be apart of. Finally, I have been A LOT more active on Cisco’s learning network site, specifically in the CCNA and CCNP Data Center study groups.
Now on to the blog, I can’t express enough my gratitude for everyone who visits my site. Lets look at some statistics.
Here is a map of where everyone came from in 2015
Last year, this was my total visitors and views for the year,
Not to shabby to have 4,419 visitors who viewed 7,714 items. This year however,
WOW! Almost a 50% increase across the board! Year over year since the blog started in 2011, every year I see anywhere from a 40 – 60% increase year over year and I am truly grateful for everyone who has stopped by once for 50 times!
I want to do something different for next year, I want to know what my blog readers would like to see content wise and the format that you the readers want to see on routedinterface.com. As I will try to do my best, I can not guarantee that I will be able to blog about everything that I receive, but I will do my best to start with the most popular and work my way through them. I will still blog about my normal stuff and since I am teaching myself Python, I will also throw in some Python posts.
With that being said, I would appreciate it greatly appreciate if everyone can take a few minutes out of their day and fill out this very short survey, it shouldn’t take more than 5 or 10 minutes to complete. The survey is completely anonymous and it will help me gauge what my readers want to see from me in 2016!
Again, I can not express how grateful I am for my readers and look forward to a 2016!
Thanks for your support and Happy New Year to all!
