Ok kids, time to start rocking Lexx again. I let this blog stall out last May for the impending Xanga relaunch, the server move finally started on September 1st, and after going through the shock of watching everything I ever built be demolecularized and very slowly and almost haphazardly reconstructed, I have finally (after 9 weeks into the relaunch) got limited widget service and a little more text editor control. I'm still missing the header and footer freedom I used to have and still can't run scripts, but I suspect they'll be coming back as well over the next month or two.
HOWEVER. I can at least get the reader service and external site tracker back up. As discussed at stats for Lexx fans, and waving to the U.S. Airforce | Arch Heretic, site meter isn't even close to an accurate real time traffic count, plus I've lost tracker stats on it twice now, but it's still cool to have that cute little visitor graphic on the page. I intended to allow the 'plus' perks on site meter to expire at the end of September but it still seems to be running, in a grace period, perhaps, but I've made it public so anyone can click it.
Before the relaunch started I saved a complete traffic inventory, some of my posts have over 10,000 direct hits. I have excellent spam filters, so those are real people coming in from searches, live twitter links, and pings from other people linking me. Returning visitors aren't generally counted much if they return a lot, the tracker programs look for new hits. Xanga's old internal tracking system was much better than site meter, hope they get that back up real soon. I'm very curious to see if it kept counting traffic during the relaunch or if I've just had to miss those stats completely.
I've been alerted to mobile service not being back up yet, so my Xanga blogs are still impossible to read on other devices. Hopefully the feedburner can fix that problem for you. It has worked great in the past, you click on the "subscribe" button at the upper left of the page, and the posts arrive to you as soon as I publish them. This is a clip of feedburner stats. I may have lost all those subscribers during the relaunch, I'm very sorry about that, but it's very easy to hop back on board by clicking that button.
I know a few of my posts are a little hard to read now since the html got chewed up and spit back out. I'm slowly going through fixing things post by post, and it's been a little frustrating because sometimes after I fix something, another maintenance surge comes through and knocks it off kilter again. Xanga was the best blogging host I ever found in the last ten years, gave me so much creative freedom and even public staff support last autumn after Sandy hit and they kept the servers up on generators, so I'm riding this one out and keeping my faith that my Lexx blog will continue to be really fun well into the future. Thank you so much for checking it out, and stay Lexxy.
