  • 4 years of last.fm

    Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to commemorate the 4 year anniversary of one pecusita and last.fm. 4 years. Who knew it would last this long?!

    Cold Hard Facts

    Total Scrobbles
    1st year - 47,036 (includes tracks scrobbled at sign up)
    2nd year - 76,168 (+29,062)
    3rd year - 98,209 (+22,041)
    4th year - 127,105 (+28,896)

    Number of artists in Library
    1st year - 649 artists
    2nd year - 1,119 artists (+470)
    3rd year - 1,844 artists (+725)
    4th year - 2,816 (+972)

    As you can see both stats have gained significantly, up 77.26% for scrobbles and 65.48% for artists! Just like I mentioned before, a steady stat profit increase. Yes, I still use blip.fm quite a bit. To this date I have 1,379 listeners; 7,507 blips; 6,767 props. …
