Thanks For Your Feedback

Over this long weekend I sent out an email to every registered user. (If you haven’t received one then you must have used a phoney email when you registered on ysb. I know who you are and put your registration on hold) The feedback has been very positive.
Thanks for all your suggestions and encouragement.

I do have google analytics and reading the data is very informative.
Some of the information is as follows:

  • In the past month ysb.co.nz has had viewers from 33 countries.
  • 1477 users in the last 28 days
  • We have had 40596 page views.
  • The average visitor spends 4.5 minutes on each page.

One suggestion from many was to get Guest Posts. I am only too willing to post any subject you may wish to talk about. Just send it to me, admin@localhost.
If you know any budding journalists who are feeling stifled by their editors in getting their true opinions out in the media, get them to send their opinion pieces to me. They can remain anonymous if they wish. I don’t have to agree with what they say, but it needs to be relevant to the upholding of free speech.

With the local body elections coming up soon, I am sure some of you will have local issues that will want airing. Sometimes the MSM are too busy on the headline stuff and forget the local interest stuff. If there is anything else you want to talk about, send it to me and I will post it as a headline post.

I am surprised at how easy it has been to get topics to post each day. I am enjoying the challenge and love your feed back

Thank you again for your support.

This blog is not going anywhere but up. If the woke lefties think they have got us cowered into a corner. Think again suckers.

    • Looking at the user numbers and actual commenters, only about 20% actually post their thoughts daily. Finding the time to engage was the other noticeable reason readers don’t post their thoughts.

      • Come on lurkers, don’t be a shurker! Give it a go, get it of your chest! You are welcome to comment on anything. We have a troll here and I think we are not too unkind to her! But I think it would be fair say that we are slightly rightys here. Give it a go your neighbours, workmates and family will not even know who you are!

  1. Greater participation is going to be challenging in an environment where freedom of expression is increasingly under attack.

    I’m sure there is a degree of ‘wait and see’ going on with some registered users, to see if this blog draws fire and if participants get ‘outed’ and de-personned by the mob on the left.

    I also suspect that at least 50% of registered users are from the ranks of the enemy (either the Police, the MSM, the fascist leftist political parties) and that there is a degree of weighing up going on as to whether:
    a) the blog is so small that it’s not worth giving it the publicity boost of a smack-down
    or
    b) whether it’s becoming a threat to the ‘more equal than others’ pigs on Cindy’s Animal Farm and you have to be made an example of

    The real question is how can you assure registered users who want to comment but are afraid to, that they’re safe? That if the thought police come to you and demand your mailing list, that you won’t be forced to surrender it? Or that you won’t get hacked and people will be thrown to the mob that way? It’s a Gordian knot for sure and I’m not sure there’s a way to cut through that.

    I agree with Salacious C that elections always drive traffic to blogs and hopefully there’ll be a commensurate increase in participation. We as a people are not pissed off enough yet. The Yanks are there, so are the Italians and the Frogs and Poms – we’re always a few years behind major social shifts.

    • Great post DP.
      The average Kiwi doesn’t march in the street protesting that which rankles and irritates our sense of right and wrong. We are the silent majority. It is awesome to have a place to vent verbally, and to follow what is happening with the quiet refusal to submit to limitations on our rights being forced upon us by this socialist rabble.
      In those uplifting words of Britain during the Blitz, “Stay Calm and Carry On.”
      Well done Ed.

      • Just to see that others may also think about things in the same way as your self.

        To appreciate that others may articulate in fewer but more concise words.

        To open up other good or articles and or information and sources.
        To customize some of that to New Zealand circumstances.

    • There will be those that try of course. Political history is full of those that don’t agree and are destructive. Especially from the left.
      who else can’t make a good argument for their existence?

  2. I love that you post and it’s there for everyone to see straight away, so you can have a coneversation.
    With that other blog it’s like the old days with the post officeand writing letters. By the time the letter comes back, you have forgotten what you said!

    • Two hour delays put me off it too. Your comment just gets lost in the wrong place. Keep up the good work Mr. Editor, and may this blog long continue! It gives me hope there are still sane people out there who haven’t been poisoned by political correctness and “progressive” bullshit. Keep throwing rotten tomatoes at politicians who damn well deserve it 🙂

  3. A few points that may be relevant:

    1) YSB is a political blog with a bias to the policies of ACT & to a lesser extent National. With the government half way through its first term interest in things political is at a nadir. Another year of Cindy’s shit & things will be humming!

    2) Peter George once estimated that for every regular blog commentator there were twenty readers. I have no idea where he obtained the stats from but not all of the the blogotariat comment.

    3) In any case YSB’s stats are pretty good for a new blog. Congratulations!

  4. I think you are doing well, Ed.
    It will take time.
    I set up a login to Farrars blog and only used it to uptick or downtick for more than a year before posting a comment.

    I suspect blogs have a lifecycle. When I first read Slater’s one circa 2012 it was punchy with excellent contributions. Within 3 years it was simply quoting excerpts from mainly the Herald newspaper then critiquing that. And they hated the Herald. Weird, huh!

    You have drawn from a much wider source of material, Ed. and that is a good thing.
    WO stopped adding value. In the earlier days there were extremely valuable and informative comments from followers. Now apart from one person (Huia) there is little value add.
    We also find that some of that was a pay for play as hit jobs on people. I think this has poisoned that well for all time. The paid hit job on the headmaster of Kristin school was appalling.

    When the blog became the source of income for a family of four plus the ‘Pete’ ban-man it took to taking risks and we don’t know how genuine the posts were. eg Slater needed a lawyer and used the same lawyer as Winston. Then he started promoting Winston. How much was Quid Pro Quo?

    I think it is better to have quality over quantity. The ‘Have Your Say’ daily thread seems to have 60 to 110 posts. This is absorbable.
    If you get up to 300 it becomes a matter of rationing the number to read.

    At present I think YSB is crisp, fresh, and polite.
    To be free of the types of Pavletich, Steffi and the ztev makes things flow better and allows focus on positive knowledge sharing.
    At Kiwiblog, before the excessive censoring, was a lot of threads of shouty people shouting at each other in text.
    This added to the comment count but did not add knowledge or value.
    IMHO it also began to fail a few years ago because of the propensity to down tick what someone said even if factually correct. The hate flowed freely and that is what Farrar should have censored.
    So far YSB has not succumbed to that.

    I repeat what I said at the beginning and others have said.
    You are doing well and I think the comment count is absorbable.
    Remember: you never have to recover from a good start!

  5. Now you have found the right ad. “Free Speech Zone” just needs site details at the bottom. A great example of the KISS adage Keep It Simple Stupid while being very hard to miss. It’s got it all with the green green grass of home under a clear blue sky while the punchy message tells it all. This could be the something beautiful , really beautiful as DT would say. ?

  6. Congratulations to our editor. He is doing a good job. I want this blog here in the long term. I believe the editor may need some advertising income. So be it. But the editor must never ever sell out to advertisers. For to do so would destroy the wonderful blog that has been set up.

    • Thanks for your thoughts re advertising. I am at the stage of my life where money is not a problem. The ironic thing is my superannuation is funding this. It just gets paid into an account and not touched until I have an expense from YSB. Once it has been set up the costs are minimal. The drunken dwarfs winter heating payment is more than enough to cover this. I just love the thought of him (via the taxes we pay) funding a blog that takes the piss out of him and his cronies.
