Happy New Year linkages

newyear092008 proved to be a good year for MadSilence.  December was our busiest month ever with 19,100 views.  The month of December also provided our busiest week (5,700 views) and busiest day (968 views) since MadSilence was established in March 2007.  Not sure why, perhaps the long tail? 

Thanks to all our visitors, viewers and MadFriends.

BTW check out our home page where we’ve added a ClustrMaps™ widget. Kinda cool.  For the time period from 14 Dec 2008 to 30 Dec 2008, ClustrMaps™ reports we had 6,526 visits from viewers around the world. 90% our viewers visited via computers with IP addresses in the following countries:

United States        4,251   69%
United Kingdom  582         9%
Canada                    392         6%
Australia               202          3%
France                       86          1.3%
Germany                  82          1.2%

Wishing all of you a happy and healthy New Year 2009 from both sides of the globe. 

To start the new year off right, and after you’ve seen and heard Beaker’s Ode to Joy,  check out this handful of links to sites of interest we’ve collected over the past year.  Some interesting stuff.

    I agree, amazing stats :) enjoying exploring your links.

    My son and his girlfriend were in Tokyo for New Years Eve and said it was wonderful. I am looking forward to seeing the photos. He said it was so neat to see all the wish balloons released at the stroke of midnight.
