Use comments to inform me of omissions or mistakes.
(1) I am now using a different method to get the averages from those sites that use Extreme Tracking (which are Random Reality, Little Red Boat, Scary Duck, greenfairydotcom, and LinkMachineGo.com). I take the total visits from the last week, and divide it by 7. I do this because the "Average" figure that ET gives seems to be an average for the whole time ET has been tracking the site, which may under-report the numbers for those sites who started off low but who gained readers as time has gone on. (If you think this is the wrong way to do it, please leave a comment.) This means that the figures for these sites are considerably up on yesterday. (I did a similar thing for EU Referendum, which uses CQ Counter.)
(2) This is just a bit of silly fun. Popularity isn't that big a deal. Don't get too worked up about these charts (unless you can do so amusingly).
(3)Take the figures with a grain of salt. Different counters use different methods. Some blogs get lots of repeat readers, especially those which have comments. And the traffic of some blogs is mostly made up of Google searches.
(4) If you don't have a publicly available stats counter, you can't be in the game (and yes, I am well aware that there are big blogs out there who aren't included as a result).
(5) If you don't have a publicly available stats counter, feel free to send in an daily average at some stage for inclusion in the "Self-Reporter's Chart", which will appear now and then. (Send in a single figure only, though, not a range). Or else allow for me to have access once a week (as eventually this chart will become weekly).
