Blogger Generation

VANESSA SMEETS

This is my first class blog, presented to my Erasmus Mundus classmates from the Journalism, Media and Globalisation programme 2011-2013. I discuss the workshop from this evening, which focused on Blogging&Tweeting: how to blog, the history of blogs, the blog definition, etc…

I also include a list of which people blog in the class, as well as addresses to fascinating blogs. The reader is also given instructions on how to blog efficiently and effectively using WordPress.

Blogger Generation.

In 2010, there were 14 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 65 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 53mb. That’s about 1 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was September 9th with 1,109 views. The most popular post that day was Maties’ “gay kiss” goes viral.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were guardian.co.uk, facebook.com, queer.de, queerty.com, and Google Reader.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for kevin carter, gay kiss, james nachtwey, men kissing, and vsmeets wordpress.
