A few New Zealand bloggers pay attention to their traffic statistics. Some are even interested in how they do in the local blog ratings (NZ blog ranks – March ‘09, nz blogosphere rankings: February 2009 & Half March Half Done Stats).
But here’s something to aspire to.
US scientific blogger PZ Myers reports that his blog, Pharyngula) recorded 2,296,911 visits in March! (See What are all you people doing here?). My detectors show Pharyngula has almost 6000 Google Reader subscriptions! It also comes number 1 in the international Atheist Blog Ratings and anecdotally is known to be the most popular science blog.
It’s great to see that a blog promoting science and reason, (and opposing hatred, superstition and ignorance) gets so many readers.
