Stats

I’m going to start adding a “Read more” link to my blog posts. This will serve a few purposes:

  • More content will be available within a smaller area on the main page, also meaning that scrolling down will be easier.
  • I’ll be able to more effectively gauge the interests of my readers, since WordPress counts clicks for me. As it works now, I can only see how many people see the front page–I don’t know if they read the entire length of each blog every time, or if they see that it’s not what they want and then leave.

What does this mean for you? Once you’ve read the first hook of an entry, if it’s going to be a longer one, you’ll have to click on the “Read the rest of this entry” link. That’s if you follow the blog on the site. If you’re reading posts as RSS subscriptions or Facebook Notes, then you will probably have to follow the link to the blog site so that WordPress can add you to the stats.

Sorry if this infringes on your rights to privacy but (click here:) . . . (more…)

Confession. What can I say. I’m a junkie.

Check out my posts for MiddBlog (Middlebury College’s alternative news source) at midd-blog.com/author/caseforthedayjob/. My goal is to write about things relevant people on campus, while I am not on campus. Ironic, indeed.

Or just add the MiddBlog RSS feed to your news reader, and read all the great articles featured on the site.

And while we’re at it. If my Twitter feed in the far right-hand column of this page (>>>) isn’t enough for you, follow me @caseymahoney. My goal here is to tweet about things relevant to me, which at the same time are not overly irrelevant to others. There’s a method to all this.

That is all. Grammar calls.
