Halloween Poll

Sort of. Last time I promised the little numbers game I play here would be a little more up to date. The fact that I collected data and made notes on October 31st just seemed like a neat tie in for another list of the most popular categories. It also happens to be data from exactly one week prior to... Sign in to see full entry.

Almost a handful of you found my little "something different" useful enough, or interesting enough, to give it at least a quick look-see. So, a week later, I thought it might be interesting to do it again and see if the passage of a week showed any interesting changes or trends. As last time, the... Sign in to see full entry.

Something a little different

Off and on for nearly five years I’ve posted lists of the most popular categories in the Top 100. Early on I devised several elaborate methods of ranking the most popular categories, most of them centered exclusively around the blogs in the Top 100. My reasoning for this was that the Top 100 was a... Sign in to see full entry.

Blogging ritual

Every day that I sign on to Blogit I have a little ritual I go through. After a quick glance at the home page to see if anything interesting catches my eye, I click on “Write” so that I can note any change in the number of page views I’ve received. I use this as my counter and use it to determine... Sign in to see full entry.

Forty days and forty nights

Well, close enough for horseshoes, anywho. Flash back to July 22-23 for a minute when I got ambitious enough to track down and crunch a lot of numbers about activity on Blogit. The numbers were gathered from the July 22 update, and the results of my number crunching were posted on July 23. Now flash... Sign in to see full entry.

Has Blogit shrunk?

Yes, if you consider the number of blogs active within the last seven days to be significant. And this, more than anything else, is probably the bellwether indicator of the health of Blogit. Indeed, activity within the last seven days serves as the basis for the overall Top 100. In the words of... Sign in to see full entry.

I don't know nuthin'

Sorry about the double negative, but, as is usually the case when one is used, I'm expressing my ignorance of how things really work at Blogit. What I mean, of course, is I don't know as much as I thought was the case. For instance, I thought the alarming (to me) drop in the number of different... Sign in to see full entry.

Missed me, didn't you?

No? Well, I was afraid of that, but be that as it may, I've been otherwise occupied lately. It's called self-preservation. I got so sick I thought I might have to take a side trip to the ER, able to afford medical care or not. To make a long story short, I simply didn't have the energy to sit at the...

Wheee! Here we go again.

A chart of the most popular categories in Blogit's Top 100, as of the July 22 update, would look something like this: Poetry (45 different blogs, #1 = highest ranked blog for the category) Journal (15 blogs, #3) Everything Else (13, #7) Opinion (6, #4) Humor (5, #5) Religion & Spirituality (4, #10)...

One more time...

and then I have to break myself from spending so much time compiling these figures. It just so happens that I've checked on the Top 100 for 10 consecutive days from July 2 through July11, so here's a summary of the results presented just so it won't seem it has been a total waste of time: Poetry,...

Improvement? Not really.

Thirteen different categories made it into the Top 100 on Blogit July 4th and 5th. That increased to 15 categories with the July 6th update. This makes the Top 100 a little more diverse, but it does nothing to relieve the stranglehold the Poetry category has on the top 100. It simply means that 12... Sign in to see full entry.

It's not Poetry I'm complaining about

...although I think there are a disproportionately large number of Poetry blogs on Blogit. Everyone seems to want to get in on the act, some of them several times with several poetry blogs. I don't have anything against multiple blogs, or even against having a couple of blogs in the same category,... Sign in to see full entry.

Red Flag! Red Flag!

Same old, same old...still.

It's been a while since I've checked the Top 100 to determine what are the most popular categories on Blogit. Day before yesterday, and the day before that, I finally got around to taking a look again. It was hardly worth the effort. Poetry still far outdistances all other categories by a bunch with...

Is it just my imagination, or is Blogit shrinking a little?

I really don't know because I've hardly been around for more than a month, and I've only posted a handful of times before today in something like three weeks. Usually when that happens my earnings drop off to practically nothing pretty quickly. But not this time. If anything, I seem to be running... Sign in to see full entry.

Is the bloom off the rose?

Is Poetry pulling a big fade from the scene as the most popular category on Blogit? Maybe, but probably not. It has, however slipped somewhat in its dominance of the neighborhood. Facts, figures, and thoughts to come. Stay tuned. Sign in to see full entry.
