March 2006 review 2 and posts for Tuesday, 1 April

Sitemeter figures finished the month at midnight Sydney time; WordPress figures have about an hour to run, but since that won’t make much difference I’ll finish off my month review now.

Sitemeter stats

The Floating Life Sitemeter covers this blog, New Lines, Old Lines, Sans Words, Ninglun’s Journalspace and a few items on Geocities. The last two figure very little these days. 9,832 visits and 11,975 page views. That is down on February but up on January. Note that all my Sitemeters are configured to ignore my own visits.

English/ESL includes another smallish component on Geocities, but is otherwise purely the WP blog. 7,768 visits and 10,175 page views. That is better than February, but still behind 1) November 2007 (8,515/11,255) and 2) October 2007 (7,778/10,649). Read the rest of this entry »

March 2008 review 1

Despite I am in decline… the month is going to be rather good comparatively. Already English/ESL is the best ever, beating the 11,500+ WordPress page views of November last year; the current 24 hours — 45 minutes left — delivered over 600. New Lines from a Floating Life is a more modest performer, but its 3,000+ is better than the previous best, 2,726 in January.

The Sitemeter total visits to the Floating Life blogs since 2001 stands at 199,914 at the moment. The next milestone there is obvious. There is a chance it will arrive today. 🙂

Go to Apparently Barack Obama is the Antichrist on Ninglun on Blogspot where one of those comment threads has been bubbling along.

Posts with that 1000+ appeal!

In order to show up as “visited” in the WordPress stats, a post has to be individually clicked on. Of course most visits are “generic” — that is, people look at the latest page and that’s it; they don’t hit an individual entry unless they choose to read the comments or make one of their own. The other reason, perhaps the main one, that an individual post (or page) registers as visited is that a search has led to it.

Posts for Easter Sunday

Tibet again, but with a difference perhaps. On New Lines from a Floating Life: The Dalai Lama is a living treasure; on Floating Life Sans Words: How big is Tibet?

Later on Floating Life Sans Words I introduce you to some of our Surry Hills fauna. If you are arachnophobic, don’t look.

And as you will have noticed, there has been a total template change through all my WordPress blogs. The previous main template, I found, was slightly erratic in the “previous entry” link at the bottom, which could be very annoying for anyone doing searches. I trust the new templates are better for that.

Milestone

Sitemeter shows the number of visits to the Floating Life blogs (and ancestors) since 7 July 2001 as 198,016. Visitor #198,000 came from Sweden at 7:46:46 pm my time and read family stories.

Posts for Holy Thursday 2008

On New Lines from a Floating Life I follow up on Thomas’s post on Barack Obama’s Philadelphia speech. In the afternoon I added Yawning Bread’s views on Tibet.

Floating Life Sans Words lives up to its title with Holy Thursday: Tintoretto “Last Supper” but strays a little on Train set for Morris Iemma? Then I couldn’t resist About the Tom Roberts painting in the side bar…

STATS NOTE: Sitemeter

So far this month Sitemeter says the various Floating Life sites have had 7,439 visits and 9,010 page views (as at 1.30 pm). March 2007 totalled 8,919/12,833. However, at that time English/ESL was included in the count… To date, English/ESL has had 5,832/7688 this month. The real comparison then is to 13,271 visits and 16,698. Just thought I’d mention that. 😉
