    thanks for sharing this info, i ‘m actually starting to analyze when to post in my blogs. because sometimes when i think i generate comments or traffic out of my entry it didn’t happen. then there are times also that i don’t know why i have huge traffic.

    for me, it still weekdays especially monday and friday. but i’ll consider your info. i find it interesting.

    Wow. this is very very interesting. I didn’t know that posting a new post at night is not really a good thing because I love to post at night, lol.

    But anyway I guess it still depends on the demographic or audience of the site although I see this as for the majority of audience (not specific though)
