"Best of FSK" - September 2011

According to Google Analytics, September was a good month for my blog. I had 7324 Absolute Unique Visitors, just shy of my record 7717 in October 2010. (I wonder why September and October tend to be really good months for my blog. That makes no sense.)

My September AdBrite earnings were $7.73. My average eCPM from AdBrite is around $0.50. That seems low, but at least they send me a check and didn't ban me. I'm at only 1/3 of my goal of making $20/month, which is what I would need to cover a Linode. Now that I'm unemployed, I might move to my own domain, since I have free time. (I'm not interested in cheaper hosting options than a Linode, because I want to write some of my own code, in addition to just having a blog.)

According to Google Analytics, my most popular posts in September 2011 were:

  43. The Nymphomaniac Pattern (38)
  44. Kitchen Nightmares And Psychopaths (37)
  45. Fnord Analysis - "Inside Job" Documentary (36)
I've noticed that "X sucks!" and "X is a scam!" posts tend to do well, especially when X really does suck or X really is a scam. "The New Delicious Sucks!" is underrated in this list, because I published it near the end of September. That post is doing very well so far in October.

Usually, when I say "X sucks!", some trolls come out saying "FSK, you're wrong. X really doesn't suck." Nobody has made a comment defending the new delicious. I really should write "fsklicious". Now that I'm unemployed, I should get my own domain, own Linode, and start coding some stuff. However, I shouldn't feel guilty about relaxing for the first few weeks of unemployment.

If you only count posts published in September 2011, the most popular posts were:
  1. The New Delicious Sucks! (149)
  2. Solyndra Stole $500M "Stimulus" Money (107)
  3. Federal Reserve "Twist" (58)
  4. UBS Loses $2 Billion (50)

Are you gonna do a post about "Occupy Wall Street"? Don't you work on Wall Street (when you work)?
