Blogging Recap

Well, it has been a month of regular blogging. The White & Gold (blog edition) has been visited approximately 700 times during its inaugural month. In addition, the total number of “hits” to the site (counting when the same IP address returns during the same 24-hour period) is approximately 1200 for the month.

Currently, the site is now averaging approximately 30 “visitors” a day. Additionally, there are a number of school employees who regularly check the site and, since the school’s IP is only counted once in a 24-hour period, I suspect that the true number of different visitors is even higher.

So, what does that all mean? I feel that this first month has been a success. The blog site has not been extensively advertised, but it seems as if there is growing interest.

This first month has allowed for a good bit of our new programming to be explained in some detail. Some of that will continue. I also intend to use the forum to bring other state and national issues to the attention of the users of this blog. Also, you can see that the Friday Spotlight is up and running; this feature will be a regular Friday post throughout the school year.

Finally, the blog does allow for interactive use. If you have a question or comment, feel free to add it to the “comment” section of a daily post. You may even have a suggestion for something that you would like to see as a focus for an upcoming posting; add your thoughts.

On to our second month of blogging!
