Of Design and Data
By Maya on Mar 11, 2008
I turned on google analytics for the blog and will intermittently share the data here.
I turned it on right before Loren's last post
and right away we had 80 or so hits from some of the predictable places. This tells me that most of us probably
have the RSS feed turned on and when
we learn that something new is up on the
blog - we go check it out.
The average visit length is 2.3 minutes. This is good news. People are either reading the blog entries, or there are staring in stupification at the theme :).
Speaking of themes - if you all are like me (and in this respect I think you are :)) - as soon as you see a new theme , you want to tweak it. So, here is how to do this:
- Create a blog on blogs.sun or blogs.sfbay
- Use the "propaganda" theme
- Download the css file I created
- Replace the contents of the theme tab in your blog with this css
You are now ready to start tweaking. Send me the results and I will upload them! Don't want to mess with the css - thats fine - send me hex values for colors, mockups, new icons - whatever! Add your notes as comments to this blog (we can test drive the bug-tracker use case for the blog :)). We will share what you send on the blog itself, and find a way to get it into the css template if possible.
