Stuff that occurs to me

All of my 'how to' posts are tagged here. The most popular posts are about blocking and private accounts on Twitter, also the science communication jobs list. None of the science or medical information I might post to this blog should be taken as medical advice (I'm not medically trained).

Think of this blog as a sort of nursery for my half-baked ideas hence 'stuff that occurs to me'.

This blog's most popular posts

Thought some might find this interesting. Since I don't know how many hits others get on their blogs I've no idea whether I'm showing off or opening myself to pitying ridicule, I hope neither. It's a continuum ;)

The 'How to find old tweets' post mentioned below is no longer updated and has been superseded by 'A list of tools for finding or capturing tweets' however the old one is what comes up in Google searches a lot and since it links to the later one I'm not planning on deleting it. The 'How to copy and paste using iPhone 3' post was surprisingly popular (well... it's all relative I suppose!), it's another one that just gets picked up from Google.

Edit 7 May 2012 - I've started getting a lot of searches relating to my post on movie studios logos quiz but I suspect this is actually related to a new iPhone app where you can guess the logo.

The second, third, fourth and fifth are the ones I've actively promoted via Twitter but Google does a better job of promoting the first one than I can do promoting its replacement (the fourth one).

Note: these are pageviews, not individual people.

It's odd because quite a few of my posts over on my Posterous blog have several thousand hits - even for posts that aren't particularly thrilling. Hits appear to accrue very randomly on Posterous posts. Possibly as a function of how old the post is, but that doesn't explain the whole thing.

First is the picture, second is the copy / paste of the text so that the URLs work.

Comment policy: I enthusiastically welcome corrections and I entertain polite disagreement ;) Because of the nature of this blog it attracts a LOT - 5 a day at the moment - of spam comments (I write about spam practices,misleading marketing and unevidenced quackery) and so I'm more likely to post a pasted version of your comment, removing any hyperlinks.

Comments written in ALL CAPS LOCK will be deleted and I won't publish any pro-homeopathy comments, that ship has sailed I'm afraid (it's nonsense).
