Watched Blogs

I read on a blog somewhere that there is now a facility to see how many people watch specific blogs. But I can't find it anywhere. Do you have to be a gold member or something to access this?

I know it's really sad to want to look at this data, but can someone tell me how to find it?


Blogito ergo sum.

You mean the main popular blog page button listed in the maroon band at the top and bottom of the page?

Check that out.

Don't make me come smack you, Mav - there is no such button on my PC. I'd have been there if there were. There is the Actively Watched Blogs (the slots), but that only shows a random selection of three, and doesn't tell me how many people are watching the blogs shown on it.

I'm talking about what smosmof is talking about, and which seems to no longer exist.

Unless of course it is now only visible to gold members, which you are one....

Are you asking if there is a way to see how many people have your blog, for example on a "watch post"? If so I'll see if I can hunt that info down for you.

One way to see who has you on a watch is to see for repeat visitors and posters. Should give you a pretty good indication of who is watching.

Kind of worked that one out, Masato!

I did see such a list appear on the Blogs page a week or so ago, with astonishing results--Angelofmercy had about 1400 watchers, while Mzhuny had about 800 (if my memory serves me well). The next time I restarted, that display was gone.....

This is the list I'm talking about - I too got the impression that it must have disappeared before I ever got a chance to look at it.

I tend to find the blog stat thing rather overwhelming and wonder if rather than for interest and edification it is an heuristic instrument - i.e. one that induces us to behave in a desired way ...... i.e. blog more. It's funny how we have this curiosity about how many visit and watch whom, but I'm not sure it's always healthy, as so many factors determine these things.

Yeah, I know Warm. But I have an insatiable urge for information!

Ok, under "get local", same maroon band.

Your blog is #11 in the UK. Recent comments 65, all comments 799.
In Kent you are #2, under Tabithaelectra. Tabs has 101 recent comments, 1042 total comments.
In all of Europe, you are #17.
In the world, you are #126. (I am #44)

Is this kinda what you were looking for?

Oooh, Mav, the excitement. A List! Best forget it before I get all heady at the thought of trying to climb it

Seriously, no, what I was after was a number which said how many people watch my blog, as this was what I had seen posted about (and which smosmof also recalls having seen).

Wow, you are #44 in the world.

they had the stats up a few weeks ago and seem to have taken them down. i was pretty astounded by them as my blog had more viewers than many on the pop list, but then i know that if someone is on the pop list, i don't put them on my watched blog list as it just makes the watched blog list too long.

I run a very short watched blogs list (7) in comparison with lots of other people. I will often nip over to a blog of someone who has posted on one of my blogs, but I won't add them to the list. I try to have a life elsewhere as well as on AdultFriendFinder!
