Today’s post is to share with you some information about what 2016 represented for GrepOra.com.
In 2016, the first official year of GrepOra.com, we had over 26,000 accesses from more than 160 different countries. Indeed, almost every country in the world was in GrepOra.com this year. And this is spectacular considering we discuss very specific topics about Oracle Database and Applications.
The accesses are still growing every day, which show us we can expect even bigger numbers to celebrate in 2017. See below our monthly accesses graph of 2016.

Besides that, some accomplishments make us even prouder, like being recognized by OTN LA (Oracle Technology Network – Latin America) as a technical reference blog in Database Management and Performance category.
Since this recognition in June, we have the OTN LA logo in our blog page. Also since August, we have the GUOB logo, once I participated in last GUOB Tech Day as Official Blogger.
All this, however, was not achieved only by having the blog. Since the beginning we organized the weekly posting schedule and the author’s pages. The consistency prove itself by our monthly access growth. The organization and commitment to keep posting relevant content is what led us to this point.
Notwithstanding those numbers, recognitions, networking, self improvement in technical skills, writing and mindset changing, there is a rewarding feeling of giving back to community a little bit we took. Since I started as DBA, I sometimes used independent blogs and references in the most critical and desperate moments. This way, nothing is better than feeling useful for someone else. Don’t you think?
Be sure we are preparing lots of news and even more quality content in GrepOra.com for next year.
Thank you all and have a great New Year!
