This is the time of the year when we are looking back in the past and start thinking about the next year. Although, next Monday will be a normal Monday, it somehow feels as if someone is going to press the reset button this weekend. For us 2012 has been a great blogging year. The amount of unique visitors increased with almost 200% and You are one of them! Thank you for visiting us! Knowing that an increasing audience is reading, and even better using the knowledge we like to share is really rewarding. Let’s have a look at what you seemed to like most over the past year.
Skype was having issues too often
Several Skype updates caused serious issues. In May many Windows 7 users couldn’t connect to Skype any longer. We quickly found a solution and decided to share this. It resulted with the highest amount of visitors within one hour ever on our blog. Some days later we could more or less see the impact of this update. By the end of May we had to suffer again and in June as well. Rumors which probably all had to do with the merger with Microsoft could be noticed, but in our opinion that couldn’t be the case and it wasn’t. Based on a new traffic peak on December 18 we had to conclude something went wrong again, but we didn’t face any issues ourselves at that time.
Although, it’s nice to see these post generated a lot of traffic on our blog, we hope Skype will be more reliable in the upcoming year. Too many people are relying on the availability of the service. We will for sure write about the changes that will be made by Microsoft. That’s because we really believe to notice the first changes by 2012, since the merger was already approved.
Java and .NET development knowledge really appreciated by our audience
We’ve been covering many more topics on our blog than those mentioned above. We invite you to browse around and to find what suits you best. As I noticed, next week will start with just a normal Monday again, so we will continue blogging like usual. Please tell us what you would like us to write about by leaving a comment below, or use the bottom “pop-up”.
Thanks for your support! We wish you all the best for the new year.
