On 3rd September, the Upside Learning Blog completed six months of existence. Its a good time to review how we have done thus far and to move the goal posts. The blog has 70 posts, attracted 150+ comments, has around 300 subscribers (reported from FeedBurner), and has received over 22,000 page views.
The WordPress Blog Stats graph of monthly page views for the last 6 months. Since we started tracking only towards the end of April, the numbers for March and April would be little higher than those shown here, but certainly lower than those of May.
