Lack of posts at Frihost

I have noticed that there has been an unusually low number of posts last month (March 2013). There were only about 3200 posts during the month of March. I am quite concerned by this. Also, March has 31 days which makes the month longer than usual. It may be because Seasonal Affective Disorder usually happens in Spring or more people would be less energetic which causes a drop in the number of posts. The post count as also much higher a year ago so it could also because of having less active users. What do you think of the causes which causes the drop?

I think there's something about this season. Few daylight hours (at least for some of us) so people are at work most of the time when the sun is up and then they go home and it's dark. It also seems like people are pretty busy, either with work or trips or family, personal projects even. I'm kind of the opposite since I'd go crazy if I didn't have this outlet right now so I've been blogging like a fiend. I haven't been active on the forums but that's mostly because I feel like I've commented on all the topics I feel like commenting on. We need some new content out there and I realize it's not that hard to create one.

Good point. Thank you for replying within a very short period of time. Thank you very much for your ideas. Also, we should try to invite people to Frihost but not associate it with free domains or hosting to prevent people from posting just to get these rewards nor we want Frihost to appear on search terms such as "free domains" on top of the list as it attracts these kind of people. Just say that it is a forum.

Good I hope to see more posts soon.

Agreed TG. Many people cash in with the Easter holidays and add on personal leave. I think it's also the school holidays then. So let's hope then that the number will increase during April.

School holidays are already over for me. It has ended a few weeks ago. I hope to see at least 4000 posts for this month. Can we try to post more often to try to increase that number? If we are lucky, the post count could go as high as 4500.

Agreed. The blogs certainly seem to be generating many posts. Haven't seen the Blog Section as active as now in all of the years I've been posting at Frihost. Am enjoying the blog posts as well.

Wow. I was surprised that you said that. By the way, is it true that Frihost is decreasing in popularity as there are less posts?

I don't think so. It's seasonal. April is usually school holidays as well as Easter holidays.

The number of posts have dropped slightly for the last few days but I hope that the number posts would increase over the next few days.
