A Consistent Conversation
I HAVE A BLOG that I am using to show creative multimedia students lessons in consistent viewership.
A lot of things have changed since 2002 on my blog. The biggest change is fragmentation in readership. When I started a daily online journal on 1997, I didn't track the analytics on my stuff but a small snippet of code from Radio Userland told me I got at least 100 visitors a day. When I switched over to MovableType in 2001, daily views climbed over 500. And when I joined the Typepad community in 2003, I had more than 1000 page views every day. Things have gone back to the days of MovableType for me because there are so many ways of grabbing a peek at my blog now and those methods don't involve an actual visit.
On an average day, 735 people read my blog in a newsreader. They get a textual experience with an image but not the sidebar, comments or banner image.
But there are ways of defining a set point for minimum page views and then executing a strategy to deliver on that goal.
That is what I'm discussing with creative multimedia students who ate completing assignments as part of this level modules involving an exhibition, social media for business and web analytics.
