I was surprised to learn that the staff assistants were up to date on the latest details, while a professor I ride with who actually studies blogs and has a 20-month old has “checked in on occasion.” I have a web stats program, but it just tells me things like which pages are most popular, and where most visitors have come from. It doesn’t tell me what I want to know. I want it to tell me “Jenn checked the blog obsessively today.” Or “Renita was conspicuously absent today.
