Saturday blog news

The new template I tried here first is now across all my WordPress blogs except my student one, which you normally don’t see.

Stats to amaze myself with

  • Late in the week before last (probably) the Sitemeter count went over the 375,000 visitors. That of course is measuring all the Floating Life and “Ninglun” sites back to 7 July 2001. There have been over 2,000 visits in the past week.
  • Since 1 December 2007 Floating Life (this blog) has had 132,025 page reads, according to WordPress.
  • English/ESL continues to rock. It is already way over last month’s total, thanks no doubt to Trial HSCs in NSW: 12,184 views so far this month compared with the July total of 10,859. The best ever was March 2009 with 14,857 views.
  • More modestly, Floating Life has had 4,445 views so far this month compared with the July total of 6,352. It isn’t true that 2,445 of this month’s views are by Kevin from Louisiana. 😉
  • The top recent posts on Floating Life in the past seven days have been:

What recent posts have been attracting attention?

… for good and ill, I should add! 😉

On this blog in the past seven days the recent posts most visited individually have been:

Except for the last one, there is a bit of a theme going there. The comments have sometimes been agreeable, but many show just how difficult balanced, rather than partisan, discussion is about these matters.

The English/ESL blog has been spectacular in the past week, but then it is Trial HSC season. On Sunday 9 August there were 1,119 views, and on Monday 10 August 929.

Neil’s Sydney Photo Blog has scored well in the past week, but nothing like English/ESL! It is up 48% on the previous week at the moment. Glebe: my home 1987-1988 was the most popular individually viewed photo, but only six views! There is quite a long list of photos people have looked at in the last week though.
