NurseCentral / Weblog / One Month In


One Month In

I am feeling quite pleased with our first month of live activity. Some of this month's activity statistics are quite interesting and I feel encouraged that nurses in Australia are wanting this kind of site and hopefully this will provide you what you are looking for.

We now have 98 members registered - didn't quite make the triple figures first month in, but that is a great start. We have had over 450 individual visitors who have viewed over 16,000 pages. Our busiest times this month are Tues and Thur between 1100 and 1300.

The vast majority of visitors are from Australia, but we have also had visitors from New Zealand, UK, USA as well as a number of other European and Baltic countries.

We have had a little bit of activity on the forums, but I am guessing that most members have not had much experience using forums, so I am certainly looking forward to that part of the site increasing. We have put up over 50 news articles relevant to nurses and midwives and had 10 events registered coming from all around Australia.

Our most visited areas of the site are the Forums, followed by the Events and News. Welcome to our first sponsor - Victorian Nurse Specialists - it would be great if members and visitors supported our sponsors as they will help the site to remain viable. If you see something that interests you in the Google Ads or Amazon, click through as these also help a little.

Thank you all for your encouraging words and support and particularly those who are referring friends to the site. If you find the site valuable, please refer your friends and colleagues and print out the poster and hang it in your staff room. Thanks everyone - Darren
