Hey hey, it's TWO years old!

Birthday Cake

It's been now little over two years since I launched this blog. This isn't my first blog exactly, I had one 2003 to 2005 (if I remember right). That one was in Finnish and I built my own little blogging system with PHP and MySQL. Things have changed since, a lot. And I think most people have forgot I used to blog back then.

This one in English and running on Drupal was first called By the way and later renamed as Tomato Branch. Now it's just tasselflower, as I decided to unify my online presence. And if you wonder what the heck is tasselflower, take a look on how I became one.

Through this time not just the name has changed. This blog has seen a whole bunch of different designs. I use this like my own personal sandbox, tweaking and testing stuff.

Some interesting statistics can be fetched from Google Analytics. For instance currently this blog gets only about 200-300 visits per month. Not much. Average visit takes almost one and half minute and average amount of pages visited is a little less than two.

Half of the visits has been by new visitors. Usually on a good day around 20 visitors come by. For some reason I still don't know on March 28 2011 the blog took in a strange flock of 289 visitors.

I want to thank everyone who has, during these past two years, visited the site. I want to give special thanks to those who have commented, voted on polls and otherwise interacted with me through this blog.

Suomeksi (In Finnish): 

Tämä blogini on ollut nyt pystyssä vähän päälle kaksi vuotta. Eka bloginihan tämä ei ole, alunperin bloggasin joskus vuosina 2003-2005. Silloin kokonaan suomeksi ja itse rakentamallani alustalla. Tämä tapaus on vaihtanut nimeä ja ulkoasua jonkun kerran. Googlen Analytics kertoo, että vierailijoita täällä käy non 200-300 kuukauden aikana ja keskimääräinen käynti kestää puolisentoista minuuttia. Puolet kävijöistä tämän kahden vuoden aikana on olleet uusia. Haluan kiittää kaikkia täällä käyneitä. Erityisesti haluan kiittää teistä niitä, jotka ovat jättäneet kommentteja, äänestäneet kyselyissä ja muutoin vuorovaikuttaneet kanssani tämän blogin kautta.
