We had a lot of new entries this quarter pushing the play list to well over 150 blogs. There has also been a lot of movement in the list. This quarter is based on 01 June to 31 August. This period is typically a slower period for many due to school holidays and children home. Posting was a lot lighter this period- I wonder why?
