Blog numbers and reader survey

Blog numbers and reader survey

I just noticed that I passed 3,000 Twitter followers. That feels like a lot, although nothing compared to legal Twitter titans @nearlylegal (5,435), @AdamWagner1 (13,277) and @JackofKent (46,106!).

So I thought it was time for a periodic general stats and numbers check, particularly as I keep forgetting blog birthdays, the traditional time for self congratulationintrospection.

  • 2,533,689 page views total since it all began in 2007
  • 2,350 email subscribers
  • 39,581 visits in the last month, of whom 20,939 were unique visitors (others were repeat visitors)
  • 79,210 page views in the last month

The blog is using a lot more bandwidth than it used to and the page load time is gradually decreasing over time as the archives grow and grow. I’ll be moving the whole site to a new hosting provider in the next couple of weeks with the help of The Small Axe, which will be costlier at my end but will provide a better and more stable service at your end.

I’m also now planning to upgrade the forum software to bring in better email alert functionality, which I hope will happen in the next couple of weeks.

The way the blog has developed now and in the past has been based on guesswork and it would be very useful to me to get some proper feedback. To that end I’ve devised a short survey of only 12 questions, several of which can be skipped so it will only take a couple of minutes. I’d be grateful if you could take the time to complete it:

Thanks for reading!
