I ADMIT to being not entirely clued up when it comes to analysing blog statistics. I read somewhere recently that, according to Google, this site only has about 100 regular readers. Well, it’s quality that counts, isn’t it?
But setting aside the “mine is bigger than yours” arguments, this is what my month-by-month traffic looks like in the six months since I began blogging.
Whatever the number of readers (and the figures on the left seem to bear no relation to that, for some reason), the trend is pretty unequivocal. The spike I experienced in June with the whole “Heaven knows we’re miserable now” controversy has been sustained, which is gratifying.
So thank you to everyone who’s paid a visit in the past, and especially to those who come here regularly. I’m sure you’ll agree that high blood pressure and furious indignation are a small price to pay for quality writing.
