Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Thanks for all the support so far (and your continued support).

Well, its been exactly a week since I started my own blog up after I decided it was better that I have my own to rant and rave on instead of using the Progressive Blogger site to do so and run the risk of being accused of using it to further my new found Party and leader. I’ve been extremely pleased/surprised at the response so far.

Granted, when you’re the most visible person at a site with very high traffic (I did 90-95% of the diary postings amongst the moderators at Prog Blog over the last year, I figured) you probably expect to have some of that readership add you to their blogrolls if they liked or were interested in what they read, plus it also helps I’m now on the Liblogs list where I’m exposed to the Liberal bloggers who arent members of Prog Blog or who dont get over to read that site much, but still, the relatively good traffic has been a pleasant surprise:

Total Hits since last Tuesday: 2439 (348.4 hits/day). Total Unique Hits: 938 (134/day)

Total Hits in the last 24 hrs: 381. Total Unique Hits: 190.

I just wanted to say I appreciate that a lot of you find me worthwhile reading (agree or disagree) and I thank you for it and for your continued support. ๐Ÿ™‚

PS – And yes.. I will say it again since it keeps getting asked of me, I STILL am a moderator at Prog Blog and will be so for the foreseeable future. You’ll just see site announcements and administrative stuff from me there is all.

    There’s enough of those floating around without one here to drive away traffic :em21:

    However.. if there are any decent holiday snaps of me at Christmas next week, I might be persuaded to put one up. (Maybe if there’s one of me with my infant nephew or baby niece.. I think photos always look better with cute kids in them – particularly if it distracts from me :em66: )

  • Excellent hit numbers.

    I found more people looked at my “About” page when I linked it to my photo in the top corner. When can we expect a photo of you? LOL

    I have plenty of time on my hands right now, and it wasn’t of my own choosing. Believe me, I’d prefer to have less time on my hands to do this.

    If I can offer a personal critique, lose the “HOME/ABOUT” menu or redesign it. Having a left-aligned menu (and a small one at that) on a three column page is jarring, as the column layout creates a centered effect.[/quote]

    I kind of like it the way it is. I didn’t want the “ABOUT” in the left hand column because there’s a lot there as is.. so I decided to put it at the top.

    And yea.. I LIKE the centered effect ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 381 hits?! Wow. I guess this would be as good a time as any for a thumbs up
    :em69:

    I think thats a symbol for a rabid drooling Tory. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Scott,

    I don’t much agree with anything you say, as a general rule. But I keep coming back for some reason. Perhaps the biggest draw to your new site is the emoticon options. What I’d like to know is the emotion that this freak represents… :em36: ?
