Taking Stock 2012 and Looking Ahead!

Posted by infokelele on January 18, 2013

Happy New Year 2013 to all my readers!!! When I started posting 8 months ago, I had no idea that there would be such a strong interest in the topics I have described in the ‘About the Author’ section of this blog but I have been pleasantly surprised. At the close of last year, with only 13 posts, we had a total readership of about 800 people, October being our best month with about 300 unique visitors.

In case you are wondering, the most popular post has been ‘The Quartet of Open Access, Broadband, Romeo and Juliet’. ‘Is there a Gini co-efficient on Open Access …..’ and ‘Open Access: The Good, The Not So Bad and The Ugly?’ come a close second and third, suggesting a wider interest in the Economic Impact of Open Access and the role of Broadband in the Openness of development.

Geographically, we have a global interest with visitors from nearly every country ranging from nearly 500 views in the United States to an average of 50 in countries like the Netherlands and South Africa and about 20 in Switzerland.

With this level of interest, I am encouraged to keep posting this year. I look forward to your continued interest, patronage and a healthy discussion.

To keep these discussions going, be sure to continue visiting this blog and while at it, leave a comment, like a post, ping me and feel free to link content to your own and other blogs. Re-blog if you must but please acknowledge the source!

Thank you so very much again!
