For one: there are a LOT more of you commenting these days. I have to approve the first comment of a person who is posting for the first time; I did that 40 times over the last month — and more than half of them came back to chat on other posts. Welcome to the conversation, guys!
Also, yesterday set a new high for site views: 625 hits!
- Daily hits on weekdays now hover in the mid to high 500 range, probably fueled by Town Meeting and news that the teachers intend to work to rule;
- Weekends, however, tend to drop to 200-300 hits, probably because everyone’s goofing around with their families rather than just goofing off at work;
- Site hits were 4,822 in August, 9,456 in September and 11,150 for October;
- Top posts for the month: Anyone looking for a writer?, 9:46-10:54 p.m Hunting down terrorist deer, Help turn on the lights at GHS, 10:55 p.m.-12:05 a.m. The Powerpoint from hell, What work to rule means — and why;
- Most comments on a story: 21 on The Powerpoint from hell;
- If someone drops in from another blog, most of the time it’s from Train Stopping;
- Forty-four visitors clicked the link to the Friday Night Lights contest, making it the top click on the blog, not counting the dearly departed Working… With Kids;
- If you’re wondering why the cameraman cartoon is included with this post, I’m wondering why he’s consistently the top image search that brings people here. Seriously, I get hits on this guy every. single. day.
Fun thing I learned this week: Jeff Barnard, who writes Wormtown Taxi, is a Grafton native, and he very nicely wrote about Greater Grafton here.
