News Hounds Stats for December

Reported by Nancy - January 1, 2006 -

Back in October, we changed the way we track our site statistics, & began tracking numbers of subscribers to our weekly digest & number of subscribers to our RSS feed. We now have 3 months' worth of data, but I'm still not convinced they accurately capture much useful information. Nevertheless, for your interest, here are the statistics for the past 3 months. For traditionalists, I've also included the year's summary of the stats we previously tracked. I've also updated the list of other countries where we have readers.

Subscribers to our weekly digest.
