The best of Chair Blog in August 2011

Time for our montly update. In August 2011 we’ve aired 65 posts, almost triple the number of July. Total visits 35,199. Total pageviews 76,108. July visits amounted to 36,467 and pageviews to 80,198. August is a holiday month. As usual, The best 5 mentioned are based on our Feedreader stats.

For the firsts time a top of post made it into the top 5.

Maybe an idea to do this weekly as from this post. Please give us your thoughts.

Hope to see you all back in September, just coined our Yellow Month. We love to receive suggestions! Keep the Yellow Chair ideas coming!

Other matters had kept me personally from posting here extensively in June and July. Luckily Julia kept us afloat during these months.

Hence total visits and pageviews dwindled from 53,704 visits and 118,068 pageviews in May, 2011 (52 posts) via 41,216 visits with 88,953 pageviews in June, 2011 (10 posts) to 36,467 visits with 80,189 pageviews in July, 2011 (22 posts).

A new contributer has announced warming up to start posting in August. Hope to see him and you soon !

Update: I had to recreate this post after it got lost when we had some issues with our hosting during the first week of August, 2011.

A close finish this month by our FeedBurner analysis.

Visits (53,704) and pageviews (118068), only a little bit down from April. Total number of posts in May 52, which was a slow down from April (85) and March (102), because I’ve used April and March to catch up considerably with our backlog of posts.

Thank you all for your visits and see you back in June!

Actually I like the format of Popular posts of March 2011. Therefore I repeat it here on the basis of our feedburner stats. I hope you like it too.

Visits (53,729) and pageviews (120,765) were slightly down from March, despite the fact that March started with some considerable down time which we luckily haven’t seen in April.

Maybe due to the fact that we published 15 posts less than in March (85 versus 100) or to the fact that April gave us considerably better wheather than March.

Let’s see what May brings us all.
