EDMONDS, WA ::
To celebrate the 200th entry on johnandkristie.com, I treated the website to a minor facelift. There is a little less clutter than before, allowing the photos to stand out stronger against the darker background. I also got rid of all the serifs on the fonts and logo to give the site a more modern appearance. We hope you like it!
As with the 100th Post
milestone, I'd like to share a few statistics: The website is now composed of over 2200 photos and more than 58,000 words. We continue to log about 120 visits per day, but will spike at times to over 500 per day, particularly around the holidays when people are searching for "vegan sugar cookie
The "Perfect Vegan Sugar Cookies
" entry has received over 50,000 visits, eclipsing every other post on the website. Who knew the world had such a strong need for a good vegan cookie? The "Projects
" are definitely the most popular category on the website. I was even interviewed by a Wall Street Journal Weekend Edition reporter for my entry on the "Mini-Pendant Chandelier
", but I don't think her story about "IKEA Hackers" has yet to be published. The attention and number of comments are inspiring, and I wish I had more time to work on additional projects.
Here's a summary of the top 15 posts and referrers to the website:
We recently discovered a funny group on MySpace dedicated to our website: "The Disciples of John and Kristie
". We have no idea who these people are, but we think we might like to. They seem pretty cool!
Kristie and I continue to receive a lot of joy from this website. We love to review the highlights of our life together and share those moments with our family and friends. Thanks again for all the visits and wonderful comments!
