Reading Chris‘ recent celebratory post related to reaching the tipping point I was prompted to check out where I was on the tipping point scale, (I wonder who else had a quick check of their stats after reading Chris’ article?).
It was interesting then when Emily came to check about a ping back that had appeared on her blog, to check out her post/comment ratio. It was very heartening and indicative of a mature attitude to the internet that Emily wanted to know what “a ping” meant and I was pleased to assure her that the pingback was actually a big compliment to her blogging.
Checking her stat though I was aghast to find out that Emily was already well past the tipping point with 24 posts attracting 42 comments. Checking her Clustrmap revealed that she has attracted some 818 visits in the two months her blog has been active. These are pretty impressive stats and indicative of a site chock full of information. I was even more impressed to find that one of her commentators was a dietitian delivering some advice on her expressed desire to also work in this area.
Oh my ratio is close to the tipping point 216 posts vs 209 comments, damn and I’ve moved the point again :). Please feel free to tip me over.
