I am genuinely staggered. This has never ever worked before – I got blank pages, error messages, more blank pages… And then one night I just popped in the code and away we go. Huh. It’s not like I was the only person struggling with this either; there are acres of internet devoted to how google charts don’t work in wordpress. Like I said. Huh.
So the main question is – was it worth it? It looks pretty, and I could happily watch shapes move across a page all night. But analytically, if you look at the moving balls version, it doesn’t really tell you much. You need two things that move in interesting directions over time, doing so across different categories, all of which is not as common as all that.
But watching the growing bar chart is nice, I s’pose.
