Note that Livefyre was removed two months later. More here.
Reviewing blog analytics since July 25 when Livefyre was installed here, you will notice a steady count of visitors.
Your fine eye may notice a slight decline in readers which is likely due to a mere 12 articles published here over the past month. Weekly visitor metrics from every Monday elaborate:
June 20: 408
June 27: 516
July 4: 338
July 11: 430
July 18: 429
July 25: 400
August 1: 364
August 8: 399
August 15: 444
If visitors remained near-constant, what of comments? Disregarding the initial article that introduced the comment system, the subsequent 11 articles saw an average 8 comments.
It is notable that frequent commentators prior to July 25 are no longer here — but that may also be due to my commenting on their blogs less. It’s hard to know for sure.
Questions develop every week about the commenting interface and kudos to support whiz Jenna Langer for her quick responses. As for you, thank you for continuing to read and share.
