2,144 emails

100 days ago, Dave Malinowski was announced as a finalist in the 2008 Blogging Scholarship.  Since then, FIT has grown considerably, both in readership and in the content offered.   A few random facts for the 100-day period:

The FIT admins have sent 2144 emails to each other.  That is not a typo.  There are probably a dozen FIT projects/improvements that we’re developing (but don’t really have the time to fully implement).  It’s not all FIT-related business, though, we also pass along links and events.  It sounds like a lot but the emails are usually short, it feels more like asynchronous instant messaging.

Found in Translation had 3,144 visits and  10,101 pageviews from 55 countries.

Monday, Feb 9th was our most-visited day, likely due to Usree’s various posts around that time.  Dave’sWorld Language Proficiency in California, Day 1” post in which he covers the UCCLLT conference also contributed.

Sunday, Jan 18th was our least-visited day.  Dave was in Italy and Usree was stuck at the airport, so there was a 2-day gap in new posts.  Tues-Wed tend to be the days in which FIT gets the most visitors, with Fri-Sun generally being lighter days.

Since Nov 10, FIT has had 188 posts, or 1.88 per day on average.

    Fascinating! I never knew blogs knew the day of the week.

    I think FIT is also approaching the coveted 2 comments per 1 post ratio. Perhaps this too will increase?

    The stat I’m most interested in knowing, though, is who has accessed FIT from the most unique IP addresses…

    The stat that stands out for me is: 2144 emails. OMG, did we really? Thanks for this, Youki. I’ll wait for your email! 🙂

    And…I think we know the top three IP addresses…they’re ours. 🙂

    Just curious to know wheter a well-known Korean website called “Daum” (www.daum.net) shows FIT on the list of websites when I type “found in translation” and found this:

    웹문서 Found in Translation

    I find it impossible not to read subtitles if they are provided, and so even through Mumbai Hindi I understood (the language of the first third of the film), I found myself reading the English translations. The transition from Hindi to …
