From this post by media journalist Stefan Niggemeier (G) I learn 2 things.
- Many people in the conventional German media are frightened of blogs, condescend to them, and do not understand even basic aspects of their operation. Thus, they keep confusing blogs which receive 500 visits per day with ones that receives 500 visits per month. Boy is that dumb and naive.
- A blog that gets more than 450 hits per day counts as one of the top 100 German blogs. Boy is that low.
My ramshackle little online home, with its never-updated reading list, chaotic blogroll, and laughably crude formatting, scrapes by at between 420 hits per day from the world’s smartest, best-looking blog readers (after a rambling post about Norbert Elias) and 500 hits per day from the world’s smartest, best-looking blog readers (after I mention Knut the Eisbaer or Britney Spears).
This means pitiful little German Joys is scraping around at the bottom of the list of the top 100 German blogs. I’m still trying to wrap my head around this fact.
