Juli 21st marks the 10th anniversary of vNinja.net! #
2010 to 2020.
That is a long time.
A lot has changed in these 10 years, and looking back at my first post on this site makes that very evident — the name even changed, pre launch! The original name was vmaware and I even had the domain registered and configured, but before I made the site live I found out someone else was already using that, but under a different tld. Luckily I caught it, rookie mistake on my part — I know, before I launched the site and changed it to vNinja instead.
vNinja.net was powered by Wordpress from the start, until I moved it over to Hugo in 2018 — incidentally almost to the day eight years after going live, so this also marks two years of running Hugo as the site generator. If I had noticed at the time I would have postponed the switch a couple of days to have it aligned.
Clearly the focus has been more on virtualization and specifically the VMware suite of products, more than any other technology I mentioned in my first post, but like everything else in life, it evolves. Who knows what is going to change in the next ten years? I sure don’t, so I won’t be making any predictions.
Content Statistics #
Ten years online has resulted in a bit of content, and a quick line and word count resulted in the following raw statistics:
- Total number of posts: 357 (~ ls -la | wc -l)
- Total number of lines: 18.742 (~ cat * | wc -l)
- Total number of words: 136.548(~ cat *| wc -w)
A “novel length” book is usually between 70.000 and 110.000 words, I guess I’ve published enough content to actually go beyond that definition. It’s even closing in on it being two short novels, in total. Not that I think any of the stuff I’ve published here should ever really be found in print, it’s still fun to think about.
As far as traffic goes, I don’t really keep too track of it, so I wouldn’t know many hits or pageviews the site has have over the years. It’s been a bit, that much I can say.
