January Blog Stats [updated]

What with holidays, recovering from holidays -- and now recovering from rolling power cuts around my home and office -- I haven’t done my blog stats for quite some time. Here's some of the main stats for NOT PC last month which clearly indicate that holidays are not good for blog stats, even if they’re damn good for bloggers:

NZ Political Blog Rank for NOT PC: 3rd (November: 6th)
Alexa Ranking, NZ: 1,155th (November: 538th)
Alexa Ranking, world: 251,650th (November: 239,877th)
Avge. Monday to Friday readership: 1011/day (1591)
Unique visits [from Statcounter] 32,605 (45,674)
Page views [from Statcounter] 45,351 (70,548)
