Happy Ten Year Anniversary To Life Of Kriton

Santa, drunk santa, Jopo -bike and gay saunas of Helsinki. Those were among the first things we covered here on the Life Of Kriton ten years ago. Yes, we will celebrate a 10 year anniversary in March. Quite amazing, really. The average lifespan of blogs is hard to determine, but Technorati once quoted that 95 % of blogs will die within a couple of years.

So we're still alive. Ok, the fact is that we're barely alive, but still breathing. The reason of course is that during ten years we've seen the internet coming to and changing our daily behaviour; microblogging with Twitter, mobile and social sharing with Facebook, link sharing with Tumblr, Vlogging with Youtube, live streaming with Periscope, music sharing with Souncdloud, photo sharing with Instagram...you remember Google+??? The list goes on and on. The blogging community is bigger than ever, but the environment is different.

So we have also many other channels to contribute to and maybe we're a bit lazy as well.

After 941 published blog posts it's been cool to see 165.000 unique visits during those years. 2010 was our best year with over 30.000 visits. Interestingly the most viewed blog posts were... Well, they're about Jopos and gay saunas. These very subjects covered in 2006 still bring traffic. Thanks to Google indexing system I guess.

We will promise nothing, this could be our last blog post, maybe not.

Keep it real, homies.

Hard Copy

2016 starts with a fresh HennyMan track as it should. Take 1/4 of old disco feel, use roots sounds as the base and add some synth leads and you have Hard Copy.
