I want to thank everyone who has been posting here. There have been some great posts and the blog has really taken off this year. I'd totally forgotten I had Google Analytics installed on the blog. Here are some statistics to let you know that your posts are not in vain. People do visit the site!

The blog gets between 30 and 60 unique visitors per day. It averages about 5 when the class isn't running so discounting this background rate and assuming a few people visit from more than 1 computer in a day then there's probably still between a quarter and a half the class visiting each day.

Most visitors come directly to the site but a few (probably mainly non-class visitors) find the blog via search engines. Given the eclectic nature of the blog people have found it using some very strange search terms. Here are a few of my favorites:
  • cholera stuffed animal
  • morticia addams nail varnish
  • scrofula humor
  • sports drinks

I wonder what the person who searched for "morticia addams nail varnish" thought when they reached the site...
