Blue Bold Chair by Big Game CH

I’ve coined May 2013 as Blue Chair Month. Thusfar I count 61 Blue Chairs on Chair Blog.

I hope to add approximately 60 more.

This Blue Bold Chair by Big Game CH is number 1 of the May 2013 series.

Top 5 of April, 2013

Based on our Feedburner stats.

In April we have published the second highest number of posts of all time: 233. In January 2012 we count 262 posts.

I’ll explain the reasons for this high number:
In April, 2013 I’ve finalized the second tranche of Tumblr imports that I started back in August 6, 2012 (If you’re interested, read Tumblr and similar Curating Tools). We still carried many “Private” Tumblr imports. That explains part of the high number of posts for April. In addition I created the 100 Orange Chairs for Inauguration Day 100 posts which explains the other part.

In one way or another the higher number of posts published influence the per post number of views in the above ranking which is lower than usual. I believe the reason is interested Feedreader users have to spread their attentions over many more posts.

Furthermore we have lost the site for almost 3 days (April 19, 20 and 21) due to a WordPress and/or server issue. Luckily through a Vaultpress backup I was able to restore the site. The only remaining issue is that we have to recreate a number of imported Tumblr posts, because we lost the photo’s in the process. The conclusion is not to import Tumblr posts anymore, but only to use it for manual inclusion here if and when apt. Moreover I see myself use Pinterest more and more rather than Tumblr.

Update: Oops, after publishing, I saw I had omitted the interesting Imprint Stools. Hence there are now top 6 in stead of top 5 featured.

Stats

Bearing in mind the site was not accessible for 3 days in April, the stats are not very reliable to compare. According to Jetpack stats April had 48,615 views vs March 52,468 views. When you add in stats of the 3 lost days, views would have been approximately the same.

May will be blue chair month. I’m planning to post approximately 2 posts per day. Stay tuned!

This is post number 100 and the final post in a series 100 Orange Chairs for Inauguration Day.

Yay! We succeeded. If you wish, you can congratulate us. Also you can still congratulate us for our 6th Anniversary 100 posts earlier 😉

When I started the series I was not sure I could find 100 decent orange chairs. Prior we had featured only 20 orange chairs. Now even with the help of various people I’ve found more than 100 orange chairs. I’ll feature them in the near future, but the series 100 Orange Chairs for Inauguration Day will be limited to the 100 orange chairs featured.

Thank you all for enduring this diarrhea of chair posts today!

I was planning to feature an Orange Thonet no. 14 as the 100th chair, but couldn’t find a decent one. Therefor I conclude the series with a famous chair Arne Jacobsen originally designed for the SAS Hotel in Copenhagen in the 50ies. After all I’m a hotelier with a chair hobby.

Stay with us in May which we have coined blue chair month.
