I started the New Santa Ana blog last year, on September 1. Through December we averaged less than two hundred visits a day. But the new year has seen a huge increase in our readership. We are now averaging closer to 300 visits a day,and over six thousand visits a month, as you can see in the graphic above, according to Sitemeter. Most blogs our size average only 140 visits a day, according to Google Analytics.
Blogs take time to develop an audience. We are lucky that we have a very popular sister blog, the Orange Juice, that has helped us build our audience. The Orange Juice is one of the top-rated political blogs in California. It was also the very first political blog here in Orange County.
