Tim Selwyn has posted the NZ Blogospehre top-20 for June.
Scrubone has the Half Done stats for July.
Open Parachute has done the NZ blog ranks for July too, with a change in methodology which puts his rankings more in line with the other two.
Being out of the country for all of July with a couple of weeks with no access to a computer had an impact on visitor numbers to Homepaddock. It also showed a relationship between the number of posts and number of visitors.
I’d expected fewer posts to result in fewer return visits but it appears to also have led to fewer unique visits too.

However, while being in the top 20 is flattering, I’m very aware of that quantity deosn’t equal quality.
To stop myself taking too much from my place in the rankings, I note that spam outweighs real comments by about 10 to 1.
If that doesn’t work I look at some of the frequently used search terms which lead people to Homepaddock. They suggest people arrive by accident while hoping for some very strange things which they definitely won’t find here.
