First month overview, in case anyone is interested.

I'm just going over the first month of page views and I guess I'm doing all right with over 1000 pageview in the first month and definite growth there in the last week, peaking at over 100 a day in the middle of the week. It's not the most popular blog on the web yet but I think I am doing all right. Most of my views come from Australia but I have a growing number of pageviews coming from the U.S. and a small but steady following in France.

The top 5 posts (in order) were:

 I do have to say, as an entomolgist, I'm very disappointed in you guys. I imagined my audience would be more interested in the freaky but biologically interesting creatures, not the weird looking charismatic macro fauna. All three fish came in the top 5 most viewed pages and vertebrates made up 5 out of the top 10 most viewed pages even though they are less than 1/3 of the posts. Only 1 insect made it into the top 10, despite the fact that they are nearly ¼ of the posts and that was probably because it was the first post and has been up there the longest. Oh well, I guess there is no accounting for taste, you guys like fish. To your credit Ophiocordyceps is Number 1, and I guess it is definitely a contender for the coolest of them all.  

Tell your friends about your favourite post in this blog.


  1. Which insect made it in to the top 10?

  2. Papilio troilus was the only insect to make it into the top 10, coming in 4th.
