facebooktwittergoogle_plusmailfacebooktwittergoogle_plusmail

Thanks to our sponsor, Kids-N-Cribs.com, we have the luxury of giving away a sporty, anti-rebound-bar equipped Learning Curve/The First Years True Fit Premier C670 convertible carseat in Blue Aurora today!  It will be shipped directly to the winner from Kids-N-Cribs (shipping is free in the 48 contiguous United States, but a charge will apply anywhere else they can ship).  You can also read Heather’s review of the True Fit Premier C670.

All you have to do to win is leave a comment!  You are not eligible if you have previously won a carseat or sponsor giveaway at CarseatBlog.com (our own giveaways of bags and such don’t count if no sponsor was mentioned).  Blog writers and editors are also not eligible.  Only one entry per household/family, please.  If you leave more than one comment, only the first one will count.  We politely ask that you only enter if you intend to use this convertible seat and would also appreciate the favor of a followup comment about the True Fit Premier in reply to our review.  Eligibility outside of the USA will depend on where Kids-N-Cribs.com is able to ship this product.  A random winner will be chosen one week from today (July 29) out of the eligible comments left in reply to this blog. 

We reserve the right to deem any entry as ineligible for any reason, though this would normally only be done in the case of a violation of the spirit of the rules above.  We also reserve the right to edit/update the rules if necessary.  Good luck!

Please note: Your comment may not appear immediately if it is your first comment at CarseatBlog, if you are using a different computer/device or if you are using a new email address.  It will not be lost; it may just take a few hours for it to be approved.  Thank you for your understanding an patience as this is the only way we have to reduce comment spam.

This giveaway ended 7/29/09.  Thanks for entering!

Blogiversary: More Lists!

Today I have two top 10 lists.  First is where our readers have clicked to go from CarseatBlog in the last year:

And where do CarseatBlog readers come from?

Blogiversary: Stats and Another Top List

CarseatBlog currently averages over 1600 page views a day from 700 unique visitors a day.  Our peak day was Monday, June 29th, with well over 2000 views.  Our weekly and monthly stats have been growing steadily.  Our busiest week was last week, as it is almost every week.  Our monthly traffic was about 21,000 page views from 5300 visitors last December.  It has more than doubled in 6 months, up to over 50,000 page views from 14,250 unique visitors in June, according to the awstats utility provided by our internet service provider.  July looks to be even busier!

Mondays are our busiest day, followed pretty closely by Thursday, Wednesday, Tuesday and Friday.  Saturday is our slowest day of the week and Sunday isn’t much busier.  Our busiest time of day is around lunch, followed by another spike after dinner.

Google is by far the biggest search engine referrer to our blog, significantly more than all others combined.  Yahoo is a distant second, about the same as Mircosoft (Live/Bing), followed by AOL and Ask.  Here’s a top 25 list of search engine terms that have brought visitors to the blog over the last year, mostly from Google:

As a followup to Kecia’s Blogiversary, I thought I’d post some “Top” lists.  Today, the top twenty (out of almost 270 blog entries) list of the most viewed blogs and pages at CarseatBlog.com over the last year, according to our blog stats counter.

So, I guess it’s no surprise that our reviews and ABC Kids Expo posts were the most viewed, though possibly not the most loved!
