DimeCasts.Net day one in the rear view mirror

WOW, what a fun 24 hours.  Yesterday was arguably the most fun 'deployment' day of my career.  And not simply because it was a project I created, but because it was a project that I am passionate about.

Releasing DimeCasts.net yesterday was such a high, but what made it even better was all the positive feedback I have received from this.  I thought I would share some day one stats from the site.

Stats

Total # of Downloads? 747 (times the download link was clicked)
Total Unique IP's w/ Downloads? 235

Total # Page Views

7700+

Total # Visits

5100+

Total # of KB transferred

7.2 gig (S3 here I come)

Browser Breakdown

Firefox (54%) IE (37%)
   

What is next

Well, I am going to continue to add episodes, but that was a given.  But most importantly I am going to continue to add features.  I already have updated the site a few times to add some subtle features, but I also have a backlog of 10+ things I would like to add.

Some of them include:

  • Streaming video's
  • Ipod/Zune support
  • Recommend a topic feature

Hope everyone likes the site, please let me know your thoughts.

Till next time,

you may want to look at SimpleCDN (blog.lotas-smartman.net/simplecdn-exactly-what-it-says-on-the-tin). i am using them for some of my sites, and they work quite well!

I'd love to be able to add these to iTunes as a podcast! I tried to add the dimecasts feed to iTunes but it didn't work. It thought they were text-only episodes.

@Scott,

I am working on getting the RSS feed to work with iTunes, hopefully in the next week to 10 days.
