As WordPress put it: “The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 18,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.”
We’re most popular with readers from New Zealand, but United States and Germany are not far behind. In total, we had readers from 145 countries during 2013.
Our most popular posts were:
- Inside a Segway PT Gearbox (and all about servicing, elastomers, couplings)
- Segway Batteries – advanced technology developed together with Valance Technology
- InfoKey Programming Tool gets software upgrade, goes mobile [updated]
- Segway gyroscope: Silicon Sensing keeps PT in balance
- Philip Bendall walks REX Exoskeleton, rides Yike Bike
This tells us that our articles are proving to be a valuable resource to Segway PT owners, and for people interested in learning about the technology that is found in the heart of the PT. They’re also curious about other emerging forms of mobility devices and vehicles.
We like to write on a variety of topics, including publishing case studies of organisations and individuals using Segway PTs for work, business and mobility (most often these are local New Zealand examples), upcoming events where you can see and ride Segway PTs, technical articles and “how to” tutorials, updated product information and special offers, the occasional tongue-in-cheek or amusing story, and coverage of technologies that other journalists often claim to be “…a bit like a Segway” that we think our audience will enjoy.
If you own a Segway PT in New Zealand, we recommend you subscribe to Segway New Zealand News so you can keep right up to date.
