One reason it’s useful to have access to three blogs is that I get to compare the stats. That allows me to have a much better picture of what works and what doesn’t, what times are good for posting, etc., than I would otherwise have.

I think Diana and I may have figured out why. It’s about a fundamental difference in our blogging styles.
