TechTalk Blogs … almost 3 weeks

TechTalkBlogs has been alive for 17 days, give or take. Time to look at some other stats:

System Summary
  Mar 13 Mar 6 Feb 27
Active Feeds: 214 196 183
Feed Items: 1,805 1,486 1,174
Votes: 883 1,068 762

Overall, nice growth rate. The votes total went down, as we took out dodgy and duplicate votes.

Today, I am going to look at the top 10 posters, based on number of posts to date.

What an interesting collection - a few devs, a few kiwis, a few ex-pat Aussies, a few IT Pros, a few entrepreneurs.

BTW, Have you been finding TechTalkBlogs useful? Daniel Crowley-Wilson has. He shot an email to an internal mailing list recently:

Subject: tech talk blogs - thumbs up

I'm finding it an incredibly useful way of keeping up to date with the best content in the australian blogosphere. I really like the moderation system, which does a good job at making the popular posts accessible.

I've read many interesting blogs in the last few days that I would never have known about before.

If you haven't seen it yet

I couldn't have said it any better myself!

  2. hey this is a great idea Francis! I just caught up with it. What’s the backstory?

  3. Is it just me or is the rss ( ) kind of weird. The 20 posts I can see range from 2 days ago until sometime tomorrow. I was expecting to get the same list as ( ).
