Day Two of my virtual tour and I'm visiting Sia McKye’s Thoughts Over Coffee. I talk about my goals with writing, venturing online, and how it's affected my world.
Don't forget about my CONTEST to win a free copy of CassaStar! And see my sidebar for another CassaStar giveaway.
I'd also like to share some odd and fuzzy blog statistics with you.
First up is the subject of blogfests. Participation in a blogfest usually increases visitors to your site. However, the size of the blogfest doesn't seem to affect the grand total.
There were 83 participants in the Top Ten TV Shows blogfest on September 20 and almost 200 participants in the Creating Compelling Characters blogfest on September 24. I commented on every blog for the first one and almost every blog for the second. The amount of comments on my blog? 115 for each one. Exactly. Not sure how that happened.
Second fuzzy statistic - word verification. Nine out of ten bloggers don't like it. (Based on comments I received on a post about this topic.) However, as I traveled through the blogging world and leave comments, I noticed something odd - five out of ten bloggers use word verification. Now that's some fuzzy math!
Any other fuzzy stats you'd like to share?
