Whew! That's a mouthful to say. How about if I just say, "Happy Java-Is-the-Best-for-IoT New Year!" That's better. In 2014, for this blog I hope to explore new and interesting ways to make your Internet of Things smarter by using Java SE Embedded.
As a look back at 2013, you can see by my blog statistics (in the picture) that it seems like there were a lot of embedded developers out there who were interested in the blossoming IoT topics that my blog covered over the past 12 months.
You can also see my blog's Page Views, Unique Visits, and Returning Visits for all of 2013 vs. all of 2012 (for comparison).
The overall numbers for 2013 look great, with 152,262 unique visitors who stopped to read my blog last year (2013) compared to 108,162 of you who stopped by in the previous year (2012). And, the 2013 visitors read 202,818 pages of my blog for all of last year. Whew! That's a lot of pages read!
Thanks to all who follow my blog! As you can also see in the chart, last year there were 16,183 returning visitors to my blog compared to 7,738 returning visitors in 2012. So, hopefully, I will keep posting technical updates, DIY IoT projects, and interesting news and articles about Java SE Embedded in 2014 to match what you all wanted in 2013 when there was such a big uptick in my return visitors.
Leave me a comment if there are any specific topics you'd like me to cover related to Java SE Embedded, Internet of Things, and how to make embedded devices smarter for 2014.
In the meantime, I hope everyone has a Happy New Year! :-D
