One year ago today, Drofdarb Sports’ inaugural post went up (a picture of me “slayin fishes”) followed by my first real post two days later. The blog started as a somewhat random idea after chatting with Jeff Brunelle (one of the LaxAllStars founders) upon his return to Boise from New York. I was obviously quite nervous when I first started but time has flown by and I can’t believe it’s already been a year. Thanks to all of you, my readers – hopefully I keep you somewhat informed and even entertained at times.
First Year By The Numbers:
255 was the most visits on any single day (8/25/11)
Visits from 108 different countries (United States, Canada and United Kingdom were top 3)
37.29 visits per day
Average time on site: 1 min 21 seconds
These were the 10 most viewed articles though the first year:

Obviously I probably can’t incorporate every suggestion (if I get any) but I really want to hear what you guys think!!
Lastly, I owe a huge thanks to Jeff Brunelle and Lacrosse All Stars for giving me a platform and a voice. Thanks guys!
