The Tap Blog Moves Up

Wikio puts The Tap at UK Blog All Categories 1406, which is a climb from 1850 odd last month.  The Tap is at 213 in UK political blogs, up from 246.  I’m happy with that.

The big story that got most attention in March was the blog post of Heizo Takenaka stating that Japan had been threatened with an earthquake machine.  As this was mentioned first on The Tap in December 2010, it makes a good story to provide some political aspect to what might lie behind the recent events in Japan.

”Who Owns The Bank Of England?” continues to get readers by the thousand each month.  The Jill Dando Cover Up keeps getting readers year in, year out.   Google show me having 27,000 page downloads in March.

Traffic is also becoming more global.  The UK is under half on many days now.  I noticed recently when I spent a day blogging in the City Centre that only one hit was logged on the site counter, when I accessed the blog six times throughout the day.  I had noticed before that many people here in Manila mentioned that they had accessed the blog.  Yet very few hits ever show up locally.  I now wonder if hits from Third World countries get picked up by site counters.  If not, I might have another cohort of readers in many poorer countries around the world.

Many mention that they can’t get comments through on the blog.  One commented on the blog, saying that they couldn’t get through to me by email.  For some reason someone ensures I don’t get as much feedback as I might otherwise.  This interference has gone on too long to be mere chance.  It makes no difference.  Enough excellent comments and feedback get through to keep things going.  Many of my best subjects have originated in readers’comments.  So keep them coming, please.

    I, for one, would comment on your postings a lot more if the comment moderation wasn’t on.

    Every blog I see that on means I don’t post anything (this being an exception).

    WV=frends. I shit you not!

    I’m a new reader. Great blog!

    I’d comment more if it was easier to do so, such as if comments were published immediately.

    Thank you, anonymous. You get spam on blog comments every day which need filtering out somehow. I accept 99% of peoples’comments so keep commenting.

    i’ll try unmonitored comments as an experiment. i suspect moderation will be on again before long, for various reasons. How will I see who’s left comments where?
