World Statistics Day 20/10/2010

Trust statisticians to pick a nice, neat date like that for our inaugural day! And I couldn't let the day pass without sharing some of my blogging stats.

(an iris I planted with James)

It's good timing, since yesterday marks 2 years since I put the blog visit counter on my blog. Being a true statistician, I've been tracking it out of curiosity. The average number of daily visits to my blog has increased from 36 two years ago, to almost a hundred. Every time the Bloggers' Quilt Festival comes around, the daily average for that month shoots up, and the highest number of visitors on any single day was over 700 during the festival this time last year.

(me mucking around last night - a rare occasion with Simon behind the camera)

I love looking at where the visitors are coming from (I use feedjit) and get a real thrill when I see a column of flags from loads of different countries! I also like to investigate the blogs they come from, and have found some great ones that way.

And now, since I know this is interesting to no-one but myself, I'll shut up and go to bed!
