No Blog No Read
No Blog No Read by cogdogblog

With travel and being busy at the 2008 NMC Summer Conference, my blog posting sputtered off between June 7 and 14 with no posts, and my stats show the consequences.
Interesting as there is lag in readership? Peak was on June 9 and then the drop off.

If you dont post, people don’t read. Seems simple enough

But today I am crawling back into action, as it were, with no idea what may emerge. When in a rut, I often do as I am today, blog something directly from flickr, as it takes minimal effort.

Profile Picture for Alan Levine aka CogDog
An early 90s builder of the web and blogging Alan Levine barks at on web storytelling (#ds106 #4life), photography, bending WordPress, and serendipity in the infinite internet river. He thinks it's weird to write about himself in the third person.


  1. I too enjoyed the flickr coverage. :-)

    And the stats seem to indicate your fans have real lives and do non-RSS stuff on weekends, but look forward to cogdogblog Mondays. ;-)

  2. I’ll always be reading your blog :-)

    what you’re seeing is the baseline Google traffic becoming visible when your “regulars” have already seen all of the latest content here. Like you said, once you start posting again (2 in one day so far ;-) the regulars’ll all come back to check it out.

    that’s the beauty of RSS. You can go traveling the world, dropping off grid, and when you return your faithful readers are here waiting for you.
