Eight weeks have now passed in my Ranking My Blogs Case Study, and I got so busy during the holidays, I didn’t have a chance to update the case study, or even work on the websites themselves, other than basic posting, and a little put of commenting.

As discussed in my 2012 blogging resolutions, I’m going to be more consistent in 2012, and post more often. So below I’ve listed the things I’ve done from weeks 3 to 8. I have also updated the Ranking My Blogs Case Study spreadsheet.

Considering how inconsistent I have been, and have no basis to compare results, I consider this case study to be a failure, but will make a final post about it next week, showing what I can take away from this experiment, and where I’m going from here.
