Year end stock taking

December 29, 2008

It is year end. Time to take stock of the year that went by. I started this blog in August this year with a post on Abortion – Parent’s Choice?, which has so far received a princely 11 views. So 5 months and 62 posts later, as the time between my posts increases, a year-end reflection post provides an opportunity write a new post. The last 62 posts have attracted 109 comments/trackbacks, many of these my own responses to readers who contributed to the 1370 page views that this blog attracted.

Top 5 posts/pages were (3 posts tie for 5th place):

1. Get Barkha off air!

2. How to beat the Indian Politician

3. About

4. Resiliance Against Terrorism

5. Bribe Rate List

5. Do Indian Bloggers Make Money by Bloggin

5. Mumbai Terror Attacks – What’s the Motive


A total of 50 search terms led readers to this blog 119 times. Top 5 search terms broadly related to:

1. Barkha Dutt

2. Blog Header

3. Mumbai Terror Attacks

4. Section 49-O

5. Kashmir


Of the 62 posts and 3 pages on this blog, 2 posts are contributed to the guest author going by the name of jazsania, a complete stranger with whom I chatted for a while before she disappeared into oblivion. Must have been something I said that ticked her off.

So that’s the story of last 5 months of this blog’s existence. Will it survive another 5 months, or 5 years? I don’t know… Keep watching this space 🙂
