200K, 1K (or less) At A Time

While I have not been keeping up with my blogging habit over the last 18 months or so, Synthetic Daisies is still reaching milestones. As of today, we have reached 200,000 reads! While this took 7 years and 6 months (as of June 15), it is quite a milestone. A few historical points.

Frequency of posts over time

The bulk of posts (particularly the longer posts) were written during a period from late 2011 to early 2015. Some of them have had longer lifetimes than others, as you will see below.

Logos over time
2008-2012. Classic version

2012-2015. New design, pretentious slogan.

2016-present. Cleaned up new design.
