Total visitor numbers on my various blogs to end January follow. I knew visitor numbers were down, but not the extent. It is a long while since visitor numbers on this blog were that low.
Part of my problem is the that the weekly Express column has added the equivalent of another blog. The added travel time associated with working in Parramatta has also reduced blogging time. When I get behind in posts, numbers drop.
That does not explain the fall in numbers on this blog. Here I have kept posts up. Regular visits are down a little, search engine visits down a lot. I guess that I have been picking less popular topics.
Over February I plan to try a couple of experiments. I will report on these later.
On a related matter, January revenue from Google Adsense was the lowest since I put ads on the blogs. I guess the global recession is biting a bit.

Total visitor numbers follow. This puts the overall January fall in context. The only positive is that January levels were a bit above January 2008.
|July (average June/July)||3,962|
|June (average June/July)||3,962|
Finally, the following table will show total page views. I will add January later.
