MarchstatsA record month for readers! (But take a pinch of salt)

March saw the greatest number of unique visitors to this blog ever!, it also saw one particular post shoot to the top of the charts for the greatest number of page loads ever! (An astonishing 21,058 page loads.) The 38,930 unique visitors represented a 90% increase in readership but should be taken with a large pinch of salt as 9,495 came from one source to mainly read one post. Click the thumbnail to see the chart.

This one link from Boing Boing proved the power of the internet in disseminating a story, which went on to be featured by the BBC on it’s website, Breakfast News, and Amateur Photographer magazine, and it is currently being debated on many forums around the world. It has certainly helped raise the profile of the rights of UK photographers and the EDM tabled by Austin Mitchell MP. The traffic from Boing Boing was overwhelming and the ‘event’ lasted five days before things settled down and returned to normal!

Just remembered, here’s a video clip of the BBC Breakfast programme that they wanted me to appear on.
