Career Services and Social Media: Todd really says it best ;-)
@EricStoller If there is a single Student Affairs dept that could *pwn* social media it is career services.
Let’s shift some paradigms: Introducing my new blog at Inside Higher Ed.
Challenge and Tech Support: Student Affairs practitioners and Tech Support departments…please let us be admins.
Do you YouTube? Don’t forget to add captions: Would you build a new building without an elevator? Nope… Then why would you ever create videos without captions?
George Orwell, Web Stats, and Your Site Visitors: Student Affairs + Web Stats….Nerdvana :-)
I didn’t monitor my web stats in 2004 (shocker!), but here’s a snapshot of how my little blogging experiment has grown from 2005 to 2008:
It is public knowledge that I am a web stats addict. Web stats are a variable reward system that keep me coming back to check on my referrals, keyword searches, and recent visitor activity. I think Wendy is going to host a web stats intervention soon… Is anyone else hooked on their web stats?
More web stats goodness after the jump.

The web site statistics for my presence in bloglandia have increased quite a bit since January 2007. Prior to September 2006 I was primarily blogging at my Oregon State University web account. I transitioned the OSU account over to ericstoller.com in September. Web statistics for September 2006 to January 2007 were fairly consistent: 2,000+ Unique Visits and about 4,000 Page Views.
How many times have I checked today? It’s like a sickness. Statcounter.com is my home page for FireFox! I check my site statistics to see how many visits I’m getting on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. I have obsessive web statistics disorder. My dashboard in WordPress now has a menu item called “Reports.” The plugin, called WordPress Reports, utilizes my Google Analytics account and pulls information into the admin interface.
I love looking at referrals, recent keyword activity, and page views. I love “optimizing” for search engines. I have OWSD!
Go ahead, admit that you love it too.
Update: I forgot that I also have the “Live” plugin installed which lets me view my website activity in REAL TIME!!!
