Assistance?

Could you all do something for me?

Or rather, Hubby? As some of you know, Hubby is a lecturer in Public Relations at one of our Universities here in Scotland. Guess what he was teaching about today? Blogs.

He`s set up a test one here..... Hubby`s Test Blog.


Now, one of the things he wants to be able to demonstrate is how StatCounter works. It can show the blog owner minor details as to which country the reader lives in, what pages they looked at and how often they come back, also how many visitors you get in a day. (It can`t gather personal data on you though, I promise.)The trouble is, Hubby`s test blog isn`t going to get readers because there`s nothing there but a front page. So, please, pretty please, would these of you who so feel inclined please click on the link and go there? Just to give Hubby some traffic to analyse for his teaching demo? I promise, nothing nasty will happen to you at all and no personal details harvested, or spam sent, or anything that doesn`t happen on all the normal blogs like this one you visit every day.

And maybe, just maybe...well, I was going to say I might put up a slight wooly incentive, but as neither Hubby or I will be able to tell who the h**l you are anyway, I won`t know who to send the incentive to. So you`re all just going to have to be happy with a brief puff of good knitting karma from me, no?

Thanks, all.

Many thanks to all of you for your clicking.

I've now got something to show my students.

Thanks a lot, keep clicking.

:-) Hubby.

If there is a dot out on the east end of Long Island, NY it is me...

And I even tried putting it on my blog - hopefully I did it right lol

Isn't statcounter fascinating? I love seeing where blog visitors are coming from.

Thanks for your posting - it's all ridiculous, isn't it? The thing I found difficult is that 'our glorious leader' started this awful shenanigans, and now won't face up to it. Who said lknitting was relaxing?

I can't tell you who I am because I don't have a blog of my own, so the Powers That Be on your blog will only allow me to publish anonymously....BUT,well,it's not very exciting, your hubby's blog....he needs some pictures or interesting facts, or SOMETHING on there (students might be more inclined to look too!) Here's something...I just had facial surgery to remove something flaky and brown on my cheek, and went outside the house to be told by a gang of passing schoolboys I have 'shit hair'....distracts from the bandages I guess! Best of luck!

I've clicked.

Sounds like an interesting assignment for his students. If I'd had a blog when I was a student I would have done even less work!
