TOTAL BLOGS n= 211

-----------------------------
Notes:
-----------------------------
  • Start date of blog is the current blog and not any previous incarnation of that blog or bloggers connected with it (unless the blog has been removed in a complete form to a new format).

  • Blogs without any posts for 3 months are removed to the Defunct? list, denoted: "df".

  • Posts and comments of all blogs are manually monitored. All comments and posts have been rounded to nearest 5 or 0 of last digit (above 15).

  • Alexa (international not nz) ranking approximate average daily traffic equivalent (see how we calculate blog traffic). Site counter if available will be used instead of Alexa if credible. If Alexa data includes break-down of blogs on a platform then that percentage is used, otherwise all blogs within a website are taken as half (x0.5) of main page traffic if appropriate. An nz Alexa ranking will round up, and no nz ranking will round down.

    "!" between the squared brackets of the past ranking numbers denotes a blogroll link to Tumeke! and will be used to break a tied score; failing that the Alexa nz score will be used.

    PRIVACY NOTICE:
  • Authors blogging under pseudonyms will not have their real names divulged unless they have themselves disclosed it publicly.
  • Bloggers who forward their traffic stats to the compiler (editor at tumeke.org) will only have the relevant data (ie. average daily unique visitors) used on this site - other information that may be contained in the data will not be used and will be kept strictly confidential.

    Being Frank Admin said...

    Hi Tim,

    (Posted this in the Feb survey by mistake)

    We've had some requests to add Being Frank to this site. Details below:

    Being Frank
    www.beingfrank.co.nz

    "Being Frank provides a forum for a faithful conversation initiated by seven 20-something New Zealand Catholics. We provide perspective on the hot topics of today as witnessing, proud Catholic Christians."

    I'm not sure what else you need in terms of site data? We have a new post from one of the team each day, and our posts get anywhere from 20 - 200+ comments from the community. Please let us know if you require anything further.

    Thanks,

    BF Admin Team
