I realised I haven’t done my blog stats since November last year. Naughty Blogger. And what I find when I tot them up is that November last constitutes a high point in hits for this blog, following which there’s been a steady decline in readers, if not (I trust) in writing quality.
I’d be curious to know whether other blogs have been experiencing the same thing?
Anyway, here’s the rest of the stats for last month:
Unique visitors [from Statcounter]: 44,251
Hits [from Statcounter]: 64,866
Avge. Monday to Friday readership: 1595 readers per day
NZ Political Blog Ranking for NOT PC in December (the last time Mr Selwyn measured this): 5th
Alexa Ranking, NZ: 1192nd
Alexa Ranking, world: 381,592nd

- Just a bigoted state
“Cross the Atlantic now to Arizona, where a bigoted state now requires everyone to carry around their birth certificate, just so they aren’t mistaken for someone who’s living and working in the state without big-government’s blessing.”
Q: What do the Reserve Bank and a drug dealer have in common?
- QUOTE FOR THE DAY: On Belief
Just how much consideration should we have for the irrational?
- Now, THIS is a Decent Budget!
I’m very pleased to see a budget released today that frees New Zealanders instead of shackling them further.
- Cameron Slater (aka Whale Oil) in hot water again
The not-guilty verdict on a claim the man assaulted his son looks to have been delivered based on a very interesting wrinkle indeed in Sue Bradford’s anti-smacking law
- “Tax cuts don’t cause growth”?
Fisking more of the Sub-Standard’s economic illiteracy.
- Grass-roots revolt among the Nats
It had to happen..
- Perhaps you could do me a favour
A blatant cry for help!
- “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day”
Even before it kicked off internationally there was already plenty of mockery from which to draw much mirth.
- House, by John Randal McDonald
“My favorite words in this world,” says McDonald, “are, 'Would you be our architect?'”
