Where’s everybody ? June 18, 2008Posted by dorigo in internet, personal.
The daily hit trend of this blog has been decreasing steadily from about 1300/day to barely 1000/day during the last month; correspondingly, I also see a decrease in the number of comments. While the latter may be due to the choice of less-than-outrageous topics discussed in recent times -no outfit of Lisa Randall, books against evolution by Oktar, failed speeches by Ratzinger, or leaks on possible Higgs signals-, the former may be the result of people on vacation, or falling interest for high energy physics. Or maybe ex-readers of this blog have decided there is no new content here. Anyway, check out the daily trend:
Maybe a better view can be had by looking at the weekly hits below. In it, there seems to be no obvious decline in visits (the last week is still ongoing of course):
All in all, I think it is a fluctuation, and in any case I am undeterred… A good thing about blogging is that one builds something big one brick after another. Looking back at the more than 1200 posts of this site, I do see good content, and I am happy it is there offered to the occasional visitor who arrives here through an internet search rather than from a daily feed. And in any case, I know for a fact that the rest of this year will provide this site with a huge amount of exciting material!
