Geeking out with Soundcloud

In my non-hobby life, I am by profession an IT specialist in Business Intelligence reporting (yawn) - probably the last time I'll mention're welcome!

Being into reporting, charting and visualizing data it is no surprise that I get a great kick out of Soundcloud's statistic pages. I have a pro-account (an indulgence!) and that lets me get all kinds of cool demographics about who listens/comments/likes/downloads my stuff and some insight into why. Of course my link is available HERE if you want to boost my stats.

I can see from listener stats that many of my friends or frequent peers are listening (always nice since I listen to theirs as well), occasionally I get strangers or random fans and more thrilling, nubile young fans who are dying to meet me, but once the SPAM filters catch up, they seem to disappear (I thought it was the raw sensuality of my music...sigh).

Stats-wise, my music sits in the middle - mostly a small number of hits until I post another which inevitably slows down listens on the prior songs. What I lack in talent, I make up for in volume so I tend to post often.

Its always interesting to see if folks following me show up as listeners - one would think so, but that isn't always the case (see above...sigh).

At any rate, for those of you who listen and read - thank you! If nothing else, the listens, comments and critiques help me get a bit better at a hobby that shouldn't matter that much, but does!
