Progress report



We've come some way and jumped over a few beginner's bumps in a bit over two months that the site is up and running. We've overcome some of the bigger make-up problems we had, we've enabled RSS feed for easier access and not to forget, read quite a few books as well as written about some of them. We also did a big and detailed 2007 overview. I believe that my brother did a nice job with the blog header.

As for you, the readers, we started to follow blog activity since the nineteeth of January. We had 260 visits and 63 unique visitors. The average time spent on Realms of Speculative Fiction is just under 3 minutes. We had 2 peaks up until now - the first one on the 21st of February with 22 visitors and the second on the 27th of February counting 55 visitors, when the "SF&F “Best Of” 2007 (the definite list!)" article was published. The last few days we are constantly visited by a number of 16 to 17 people. About 25% of traffic is direct (mostly us administrators I guess), about 50% from refering sites (thanks again to everyone who mentioned us on their sites or added us to their blogroll), and another 25% from search engines (we've improved immensly in this respect).

We are not done of course, there's still a lot of work ahead of us to meet our and your expectations - and a great wish to improve in every possible way. Stay with us further still, and try to comment as much as possible, we won't bite...too hard ;)

Enjoy,
The Team

Thanks for coming by my blog and commenting. I do try and talk a little about less popular authors and also go back in time to some of the older favorites. I think that a good books is a good book and no amount of time erases that. I've got a few "lesser known" authors in the hopper for the future so be sure and come visit again. I'll be sure to add your site to my reader as well.
