June 2007 Roundup

RoundUp

I started the “Roundup” from April and somehow missed it in May. The roundup gives readers a second chance to have a look at some of the popular posts and also helps new readers to catchup on some of the interesting posts.

So why just do roundup for the previous month ? Since this site is already a year old, I am including some of the popular posts of June 2006 as well 😀

    Recently i have been seing a lot of blogs do the same you are doing -like Popular Post for the month, etc. Looks like it helps blog do something, which I haven’t noticed yet.

    Yup, in fact I picked up when I saw this in Dan’s weblog (thewrongadvices guy 🙂 ) and I am sure the posts of 2006 would be of more interest as you are already tracking the june 2007 posts 🙂

    Tsewang, it does result in increased pageviews for sure. Thats what I have noticed. But I would definitely like people putting even popular posts of past year.

    Many readers start tracking a blog at different period of time and this would definitely help in highlighting some of the good posts to this set of people.
