As a fourth year doctoral candidate, in addition to having completed comprehensive examinations and prospectus and working on the dissertation, my thoughts are also turning towards the job market and securing that first academic position. This purpose of this blog is to chronicle the trials and tribulations of completing my Ph.D. and finding that first job.

Statistics for December

Some stats for you for the past month...

We have had 125 hits to this blog in the past month - which brings the total to 1104. These hits have come from 79 different visitors to this blog, 65 of which have been first time visitors (most of them from the "Next Blog" feature - given that 36 of them spent less than 5 seconds here) and 14 people who have seen reason to come back again and again. This makes an average of 4 hits per day from 3 unique visitors.

Now that I have started to get some content back up here again (at least later in the month), the popular entries have included:

Other than the 36 mentioned above, the average person spent from 30 seconds to 5 minutes viewing the blog, with one person who had nothing better to do and spent longer than an hour looking around.

The people who found this blog came from Florida, Georgia, California, New York, Oklahoma, Virginia, Michigan, Indiana, Minnesota, South Carolina, Mississippi, Illinois, and Ohio in the United States; Alberta and Ontario in Canada; along with Singapore, the United Kingdom, the Ukraine, Bangladesh, Spain, Lithuania, and Poland.

Until next month...
