Three Years of Blogging
three.jpg
I started wadethefred.com (now wadecherry.com) back in the 90's but began blogging three years ago. Actually, yesterday marked the three year anniversary so I wanted to give a 3-year update. A decade ago when I started my website, it was hosted on the Unviversity of Florida servers and was written using the WYSIWIG Netscape Composer with only a bit of manual editing of the HTML code. Things have changed as it is now hosted on a GoDaddy Linux server with 10GB disk space and 300GB bandwidth, is a dynamic webpage written in PHP using Cascading Style Sheets, HTML, a smidge of JavaScript, and utilizes a MySQL database. I should add more JavaScript, along with AJAX, Perl and Python just to get some additional exposure to these other scripting languages. There are 56 blogs, 142 comments, 14 videos, and 2620 picutres, the oldest dating back to 1999. I plan on adding some even older pics around Christmas time. According to Alexa, this site is the 4,596,870th most viewed website on the internet, it averages 122 visitors per month, with the most being from last May (when I had my car accident) where there were 272 visits. 86% of the visitors are from the US, 3.5% from China, 2.5% from Costa Rica, and 0.04% from Brunei. About 60% still access the site using Internet Explorer, over 25% using Firefox, 7% using Opera, 2.5% using Chrome, 0.4% using Blackberries, and 0.08% using the iPhone. Well, that's about all the interesting webstats I can dig up. Oh, and several people have stumbled onto my site after searching Google for "cherry hollow drugs leander tx".

Wade.....you need to catch on your blogging and stop the bullcrap about Obama. He and his liberal socialist cronies are going to ruin this country....worse than any Republican could ever think about doing. Having said that...Happy Holidays!

No....no more Obama blogging! I dread the next four years! I was really checking to see if you were checking your mail. Where are you residing now?

I'm in Austin right now but I'm deciding between a job in South Florida or San Diego and should be moved and working in January.
