Close to a power law

One other look at blogging statistics (at least reads). It does appear that posts, at least when they’re more or less randomly read (rather than regular readers) do fairly closely follow a power log. That is when frequency data, in numerical order, are graphed on a log-log plot the data fairly closely follow the classic power law, with the exception of the two most read posts.



It’s a bit more complicated than pure power law but close enough that this seems to follow one of the common patterns of all statistics. Interesting, I think. What does yours look like?
