Blog stats

Wow! Since I sent out my invitation yesterday my blog stats have gone from 30 views a day up to 98 for today!. Woutv suggested placing the blog stats for Hoi Gagarin on view. I didn’t think I had much to show but now I’ve changed my mind. So Woutv, I’m taking your advice and publishing the blog stats. WordPress has a handy widget for this too.

I sent the invite as a way of introducing my blog to other SPOETNIKERS and to establish contact in preparation for a chat session. I’ve not had much success with the chat – most people have responded by taking a look at the blog, leaving a comment or replying to my e-mail. These methods of communicating are apparently easier for most of us than chatting is.

The lesson I’ve learned? A little direct advertising does wonders for the promotion of your blog!
