Blog Watching week ending October 5, 2014
For Weather watchers, political observers, would be curlers and those concerned about their drinking water, this was the week to check out the blog.
Those themes and a number of our other items attracted a high level of attention as we wandered our way through the days of Monday to Friday.
All making for some interesting jockeying for position for placement in our weekly review.
Every Sunday we offer up a recap for the week of the top five items viewed over the course of the last seven days. Included in the countdown, we will provide links to the articles in question, offering up with one click of the mouse, those items of the week that you may have missed.
This week, the need for a Boil Water advisory for the Westview area topped all of our items for the week, with our original item and all of our follow up notes on the advisory attracting a large volume of readers.
The approaching storm of Thursday, some notes on the municipal election campaign, as well as the return to Victoria of North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice also found an interested audience this week, as did our account of the Saturday night Curling event at the Curling Club, helped out by local craft brewer Wheelhouse Brewery.
Kicking off this weeks review some background on just what was going on over on the city's west side.
