Blog stats for May – “Mt Albert Month”

A definite theme in popular posts here this month, and another steady rise in reader numbers -- which is very good news (as Tom Waits used to say, it would have been kind of lonely if none of you showed up), yet while reader numbers have gone up Alexa and Technorati ratings have gone down.  I’ll leave that as an exercise for readers, and for blog stat compilers who rely on them, to work out what that means.
And I think David Slack might need to work on his manners.  ;^)
