Kevin Aylward discusses the much-anticipated debut of TypePad from the makers of Movable Type. It doesn’t look very promising, frankly. They are way overpriced for the bandwidth allocation they provide.
Bandwidth doesn’t correlate very much with visitors, if my own experience is any indication. My unique visitors, visits, and bandwidth since opening the current site on HostingMatters:
4/03 6170 16860 2.94 GB
5/03 6836 19010 4.17 GB
6/03 5816 17705 3.57 GB
7/03 9624 25250 9.35 GB
Part of the upsurge in July had to do with two massive file transfers of my photo archive, which I FTP’d to my hard drive to consolidate (since I post from both work and home), reduced to 75% to conserve disk space, and then FTP’d back to the site.
