>stats for issue 21

>I’m going to break out the stats for issue twenty-one two different ways since issue twenty-two was so late going live. I’ll post one set of stats for what things would’ve looked like if 22 had come out on time and another set for when 22 actually went live.

Issue Twenty-One (live from 6/15/08-10/1/08)

6/15-6/30: 54343 page views
7/1-7/31: 87560 page views
8/1-8/31: 96892 page views
9/1-9/14: 38416 page views

9/15-10/1: 60385 page views
Total Issue 21 (through 9/14): 277211 page views
Total Issue 21 (through 10/1): 315627 page views

Even without the extra couple weeks, our birthday issue was clearly a monster: just through the 14th (when it should have finished its run), it broke the previous record for page views by 13.5%. And it seems clear that people were ready for that new issue to hit on the 15th, as the numbers at the end of the month were much higher than at the beginning of the month. I hope my inexcusable tardiness in getting 22 posted didn’t cause us to lose readers. To all the writers in this issue, my deepest apologies. I’ll do everything I can to make sure you’re getting the kind of readership you deserve.


About smokelong

Our Mission: SmokeLong Quarterly is dedicated to bringing the best flash fiction to the web on a quarterly basis, whether writtenwidely published authors, or those new to the craft. The term "smoke-long" comes from the Chinese, who noted that reading a piece of flash takes about the same length of time as smoking a cigarette. All the work we publish is precisely that—about a smoke long.
