TechTalk Blogs : +83 days

Time to check in on the health of TechTalkBlogs. It's been alive 83
days. Feb 24 was
when I first posted about it
, so that is the date I am using for
day 0. I've added a new row which counts the Days Alive. I used a handy
little function in Excel called DateDif() to do the
maths. (BTW -- I love what is said about this
function - DATEDIF has, for whatever reason,
been treated as one of the drunk cousins of the Function Family.  Excel
knows he lives a happy and useful existence, and will acknowledge his existence
when you ask, but will never mention him in "polite" conversation.)

Anyways, for the first time since we launched this, there have been no new
feeds added in over a week. Have we reached a plateau??

System Summary
  May 18 May
May 3 Apr 10 Apr 3 Mar 27 Mar 20 Mar 13 Mar 6 Feb 27
Days Alive: 83 74 68 45 38 31 24 17 10 3
Active Feeds: 248 248 245 223 222 219 218 214 196 183
Feed Items: 7,135 6,446 5,497 4,052 3,329 3,030 2,290 1,805 1,486 1,174
Votes: 1,786 1,663 1,633 1,398 1,331 1,178 989 883 1,068 762

The feed items are coming in at a great rate but the votes are struggling.

We have some changes coming to the site which hopefully will see a change in
the voting system. We will count clicks and treat them as a vote (though
weighted less than a thumbs up). Other changes include search, pagination and
some UI improvements which were suggested by passionate readers.

Another observation - 5 members of TTB have exceeding 200 posts, and one
has over 300!! That's a lot of posts

My question to you all - are you finding TechTalkBlogs useful? What else do
you want to see?
