August Blog Stats

The latest Open Parachute statistics are out.



Thanks to the team here at WOBH we are number one again. But of course we couldn’t be number on without the readers.

Of interest, if you add up the stats of Number 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 they still don’t surpass our numbers. Thank you all for your ongoing support. 

In the interests of transparency here are my Google Analytics statistics for August.

GA stats


And from WordPress…they are reading Whale Oil Beef Hooked everywhere.



Here are some comment stats:


Thank you to all our readers, commenters and most importantly to all those people who send me the thousands of tips, post ideas, emails, photos and support.

We have built and are building what I now consider to be the best political (and most feared) commentary site in New Zealand. We cover topics others fear to cover and allow (with only a few exceptions) open and unfettered discourse. It is now so much more than just a blog containing my personal views, it is a place for opinion shaping, breaking news and opinion.

I think the best motivator for me was when a “decent journalist, trained and skilled” declared we were irrelevant…how’s that working out for him these days?

I am proud of what I have started and what we have become…Onwards.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
