Watching Blog Activity In Real Time

WordPress Live is a free WordPress plugin that lets you watch your website activity in real time. You can watch live as people visit your pages, leave a comment or grab your feed. The Live display is similar to Digg Spy. Each page hit, RSS hit, and comment slowly (or quickly, depending on how much traffic your blog gets) scrolls onto a canvas. The plugin also includes a hit graph that dynamically shows you how much traffic your site is getting over a period of time.

The plugin is available from Headzoo, who seems to have a bunch of neat little plugins on his WordPress download page. So far, Live has been the only plugin I’ve tried and it’s pretty entertaining. Mind you, I wouldn’t give up the TV for it.

The best way to show Live is to watch it in action. I’ve made a little video to do just that. Enjoy!
