Our second National Day here on the CDP portal was a disappointment. There was, however, an upside! Doing this job, one must be a firm believer in the possibility of an "upside".
The disappointment was that the theme attracted not one entry from a resident NZ CDP member.
The upside was that the theme attracted 11 entries, one a NZ ex-pat. Here are the heroic members, whose support I treasure:
To publicise each Theme Day, I write an item here on the portal, I link that item to the CDP FB page, and I email each member whose email address I have collected from the Theme Day Linky process (not all emails provided are valid). If you have thoughts as to other methods I can use to get the word out about an upcoming theme, I would be delighted to hear from you. My address is julieostorry[at]gmail[dot]com.
Stats on the Waitangi Day theme are:
Number of entries - 11
Total number of hits on the entire Linky - 78
Average number of hits per entry - 7
Number of hits on the portal post for the theme - 131
