October on this blog

As ever, a look at the stats for this blog. Once more earlier stats can be found at the pages for February, March, April, May, June, July, August and September.

First off the sites most people come from:

  1. Google (-)
  2. Mars Hill (+1)
  3. Cllr Iain Lindley's Diary (+2)
  4. Jo Salmon (-2)
  5. Blogger.com (+1)

  7. Mark Clarke: Conservative Future Chairman (NEW)
  8. Cally's Kitchen (+1)
  9. Antonia Bance (-1)
  10. Iain Dale's Diary (-)
Dropping out of the top ten altogether is http://mincelot.iblogs.com/ (at 18, down 14). Not a very exciting month with most sites moving at most two spots. The one notable new arrival is Mark Clarke.

  9. blog sutton surrey (NEW)

If I am to continue reading this Blog I expect to see Glasgow (the dear green place, dontcha know?) on that list next time. Thank you.

It depends very much if your server plays ball - not all show the city the reader is in and some appear to be located elsewhere - for instance people viewing from within the University of Manchester network have been listed as "Coventry". So we'll see if Glasgow appears next time.
