SAM blog circulation figures for May 2007 - down 3000, but trend is okay
Topic: independent media
Here are the hit rate figures for May 2007 (up to and including June 3rd, as we started on Jan 3rd) for hits to this password protected edited news blog.
As a preface notice the downturn after a high point in growth in April. We looked into this and found unusually high interest in a story about the famous Simpson aka Kirkpatrick and his donkey at Gallipoli prior to Anzac day proper 25th April found via top right calender:

The 'real story' of unionist, anti war Gallipoli martyr Kirkpatrick aka Simpson and his Donkey
That was a gem of an interview with a nugget of original primary evidence of Australian history.
So we hope and trust the hit rate continues to trend upward but is subject to shooting stars as well. We have more faith in the daily discipline of researching, finding and reporting alternative news and gradually growing the information service. As they say, the folks who turn up for work every day end up running the place. At least cumulatively, at the risk of 'circulation spin' we have roughly 35,000 readers (new or repeat) since Jan 2007.
Let's see how June goes:
May 2007 - 9, 059
April 2007 - 12,087
Thankyou to our readers and especially anyone taking the time to comment or offer a story. This particular blog template could be more slick and alot more interactive but it will do for now. Thanks especially for the encouragement from various ngo and other professionals who are also stakeholders (aren't we all) in a vibrant community media sector here in Sydney.
