A Modest Food Blog By The Numbers

Most people don’t think about what it takes to support a decently-trafficked website unless they’re in the industry or have a thirst for nerdy data.

As the product guy here @ Foodbeast it’s my job to make sure both the user-facing part of the site and the infrastructure is running well. In order to make that happen I get to see some pretty interesting stats, and thought there might be 4 or 5 people out there interested, so here they are.
