I could almost use last-week's recap as the same trends are applying this time. I dunno if Mike Sansone got his invitation to the A-List party, but if not, he appears poised to crash it as Converstations is making a run at the Top 6. Other than Converstations, most of the Top 10 was down slightly.

Past the Top 10, Drew's Marketing Minute again had a big week, as did Diva Marketing. And Church of the Customer continues its comeback. Notice an Alexa ranking of 150K won't make the Top 20 this week. In Week One of the Top 25 last year, I believe that the #25 blog had an Alexa score around 450K.

And the final 5 had a better week, led by Hee-Haw Marketing continuing to roll even though the Kohls affect is long gone. And Pro Hip-Hop's Kung Fu was indeed strong enough to post an up week.

Next update is next Wednesday.

Ahh well, it's been nice while it lasted, looks like i'll be shuffling off this mortal coil in the next week or so :-)

Mind you my RSS subscriptions are higher than ever, a daily circulation over 1200, shame alexa doesn't track that.

Never say never ;) BTW Karl I think you use Mint, does the traffic that Mint reports for your blog include your feed readers? I started tracking my traffic through FeedBurner as well as SiteMeter, and it looks like the numbers SM reports are about 5% higher than FB. It looks like SM is picking up a few of my feed readers in the traffic report, and FB isn't.

Does Mint count your feed readers in your traffic reports?

Mack, perhaps SiteMeter is monitoring all feeds from your site; the original xml atom feed included, whereas FB only tracks its own feed?

That might account for the discrepancy.

Actually Mint just pulls in the feedburner stats, circulation primarily, so it doesn't include that in my unique visitors, or visits.

Mind you even stranger, last month was one of my biggest months for unique visitors, got about 9,000 in january, 8k in december, and 7k in november.
