You've given Paul Waugh the wrong link, Iain. ;-)

"131, 137 absolute unique visitors, compared with 142,079 in May"

...representing a cut of 10% in real terms, Mr Speaker. This is typical of do-nothing Tory blogs. Labour blogs have continued to invest and next month will see an increase in absolute unique visitors of 0% blah blah blah...

Oops, sorry, wrong thread!

Mr Dale,

His Grace is delighted to be your No20: you are his No1 referrer, for which he blesses you enormously.

However, you appear to have the link to his blog wrongly entered on your list. When you click it, it says there is no such blog. You appear to have omitted a hyphen.

Well deserved congratulations, Iain. I am a little surprised that Harry's Place, a very lively left-centre forum, is not in your list.

You still have a long way to go to beat uber-pratt and celebrity blogger Perez Hilton. His got 268.9 million page views last month!!! That translates into a monthly revenue, by some estimates, of $15-$20m a year!!

Think us political bloggers need to dumb down somewhat.
