Man, I gotta say having a website is an amazing experience.
Since last week over 8000 people have visited my site! Some of the hits of course are just spambots trolling the web but you can tell if it’s a real person looking at stuff by the length of time they stay and also by which page they are looking at.
The biggest hits here by far are for my 2D animation page and the Storyboards page both of which have various clips from Tazmania, Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain and Xiaolin Showdown among others.
Lately, since I’ve updated the site and added some content I’ve noticed a marked increase in traffic. People from all over the globe see this site which is pretty cool considering that I am just small part of the animation business in Los Angeles. Just in the last few days we’ve received visits from The Netherlands, Mexico, Brazil, Russia, The Arab Emerites, Saudi Arabia, The East Coast, Midwest and West Coast of the US, the UK, Ireland, and Thailand!
Some of the traffic is people searching directly for me, but most is people looking for animation studios, or storyboards, or Flash tutorials or sometimes they’re actually looking for animationinsider.net (a great website for animation news) and they come to animationinsider.com which is one of my domain names.
It’s incredible really that so many people can view my small site. People I’ve never met before (and unfortunately probably never will), all with a genuine interest in animation like myself.
I LOVE THE WEB!
If you visit the blog, we’d LOVE to hear from you!
In other news Happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there. I myself am the proud dad of two sweet girls, Melissa, who’s 8 and Megan who’s 6. I love them more than my own life and am so glad that God has brought me these two incredible gifts! If you have kids you know what I mean!
