I first started this blog to coincide with the sale of my first western novel - I thought it would be a good way of publicising the book on the cheap. But gradually I became addicted and I've posted something mostly every day since starting. When I'm writing and I hit a rough patch, I open up the Tainted Archive and start a post and before you know it I'm back to the current project I'm working on. I find the blog a useful way of kicking writers block. Course I sometimes spend hours browsing other blogs but that can be inspiring too.
Anyway recently I found a great tool that records a blog stats - you can check where in the world people are logging onto your blog from, the number of daily visitors, which is the most popular post and loads more. I've printed my stat graph for this past week here. Incidentally yesterday's post got the highest one day stat thus far.
Anyone who wants their own stat counter scroll down to the counter in my side bar and click on it. You'll have to register your blog but it's all easy and more to the point free. If I, a man who recently deleted his address book and once telephoned a PC shop to ask where I could buy a new driver that my PC said it needed, can get it working then anyone can.
