I was astonished to see English/ESL had 415 views today and has had over 500 on three days since the beginning of March. Beats this blog.
So I decided to check the WordPress stats for views in the past 90 days, about the same time this blog kicked off. Let’s start with English/ESL’s top 5.
- How should I write up a Science experiment? 4,112 views and lots of comments!
- Home page 3,118
- Mary Shelley, "Frankenstein" — and "Blade Runner" 1,460
- A student’s “Belonging Essay 1,456
- The "Belonging" Essay 1,190
The HSC helps, no doubt.
My first blog on WordPress was Floating Life 4/06 ~ 11/07. Here’s its score.

And the moral is? Don’t really know… Except, come to think of it, this blog’s not doing too badly. 🙂
The story on Neil’s Sydney on Blogspot (no longer updated) is sadder. For that I can go to Google Analytics.
In the same 90 days there have been just 289 views from 216 visits! This post has been the most viewed in the 90 days – 10 views.
Most of the posts on Sydney on Blogspot have been incorporated into the WordPress photo blog.
