Harmonium Numbers

This from one of our tech-savvy staff members:


"HARMONIUM READERSHIP UPDATE:

so it turns out we're doing better than we thought

we only started keeping track of stats like 9 hours ago, but since then we've had nearly 100 unique visitors. that's way more than i figured we'd be doing in a day, let alone 9 hours at this point. extrapolate that number to per week, and that's probably between 800 and 1000 unique visitors. in case you don't know what that means, a unique visit is the first time someone loads a page n a given day.

saddle creek said we needed 30,000 unique visits a week before they'd send us stuff. so that's 4200ish people reading us a day. i say that we achieve this goal, but then still not go out of our way to review saddle creek stuff.

over a dozen people are subscribed to our RSS feed since we started tracking it using feedburner. that's a pretty solid number, since the vast majority of people have no clue what RSS is.

good werk, everybody

Actually, after 24 hours of keeping track of stats, we've had > 200 unique visitors and 450 total visits. So if you extrapolate that, that's well over 1000 unique visits a week. Maybe as high as 1500. Saddle Creek wanted us to have between 3 and 4 times that before they started sending us stuff. We're way closer than we thought.

That said, I don't really want us to go out of our way review Saddle Creek stuff even if we do pass that threshold because they were all snarky about it, but it's still a nice milestone to reach.

Your Son,
