I do not often look at the statistics about visitors to my blog, but WordPress posts a bar graph of past visits atop the page where I add new posts, and so I noticed today that there appeared to be a major spike last Thursday.
When I just looked to see why, I learned that a record number of visitors, by far, by a factor of about 2-3 times the next greatest number, had clicked through from a Patch article about planned road repairs. Patch had picked up my blog post, but did not list the streets, so people had to click through to see which streets were being worked on this summer.
What this tells me is that there is a huge thirst for town information about what departments are planning that directly impacts people. FYI, my fist two goals on my list for the selectmen this year are to develop a system to push town information to people and to improve the town’s website.
These are the statistics for my blog from last Thursday:
