    That really interesting. I'll have to check it out soon.
    Where do you find these things>

  • Kim 20.1.08
     

    a rather roundabout way Cooper
    I think I was checking my stats through Stat Counter and followed a link from there through visitor activity....
    I love to look at tables ..lists and graphs ...so this really appealed :)..I think it's a visual thing :0

    Hey Kim, I signed up too!
    I learned that only some good friends stop by my page, and not many else :-)
    I put the badge at the bottom of my page ... they still need more info as of yet. Quantcast is watching old Speedy,

    I think (and I could be completely wrong) that they are using part of Alexa's stats, which I can see displayed on my toolbar all the time with SearchStatus firefox addon... and Compete does the same things too ..

  • Kim 20.1.08
     

    I like the pie graphs that show how many "addicts" one has ...I thought that was funny...does that mean they will visit your site for a hit !!
    I think having regular... faithful readers is very important....and you have quite a lot of those Eric ;)

    you could be right ...Pearl...I was pretty impressed with their layout and visuals and the fact that their pages load instantly....
    they also have some very professional people working for them who seem to know what they are doing ...not like some that I could mention ..*cough*
    Compete? haven't heard of them...will have to check them out :)

    Funny!!!
    High speed internet is awesome! ... but now I am off, back to home. s l o w n e t

    I think they should have an award for the slowest loading sites Eric...
    eg Stumble Upon and Stumble Upon and Stumble Upon...
    as you can see I am not enamoured of SU :)

    Thanks, Kim! You're always coming up with new info and tricks to share with us! I'm going to check this out. :)

    Hope all is well. How is your portrait of Alex coming?

  • Kim 20.1.08
     

    ah Lynda...very slowly...:0
    I have painted Alexander's hand over 3xs and I have less than a week to enter it ..
    oh well will have to put in my back up portrait if it doesn't come together by Wednesday :0

  • Kris Cahill 20.1.08
     

    Thank you Kim, again! I appreciate all the useful information you so kindly share. I will be sure to check this out.

    I'm still working my way through your fabulous list of artists. What fun, and I am struck by how much work that must have been for you, wow! I know you enjoy it, and it's such a great service to all of us.

  • Kim 20.1.08
     

    you're welcome Kris :)
    I am constantly amazed at the boundless artistic talent in the blogosphere and it's a real pleasure visiting new sites every day...
    thanks for calling by :)

  • Lynda Lehmann 21.1.08
     

    Well you can't rush these things, can you? I'm glad you have a back up--that's smart and takes the edge off needing to finish. Hands are difficult!

    Good luck finishing it!

  • Diane 21.1.08
     

    I am going to have to get me a self-hosted blog so I can use all these great things people recommend ... I could fast turn into a widget-freak though.

    I love tables and graphs - stats in general. Must be the Maths teacher in me coming out to play.... :)

    That's interesting to know about Quantcast. I haven't heard of it before. I'm certainly going to check this out.

  • Kim 21.1.08
     

    thanks Lynda...
    I think the hands are too much of a focal point at this stage so will see what happens...:)
    it's a day by day thing and tomorrow will be taken up with ultrasound and x ray....so hopefully I'll know the extent of the damage...

    hi Diane
    I thought your blog was self hosted :)
    it's very easy to get addicted to widgets...hah...

    hi Virtuozzo ...
    definitely worth checking out!!!
    just to see the stats :)
