Another Boring Look at Blog Stats

Stumbled upon this table on my stats page. I can’t believe I started this thing way back in 2008. As you can see, I did not really post regularly until 2016.  I’ve already posted more this year than I did in the entirety of 2010 and 2011. I’m happy to see that my average comments and likes per post are steadily rising. It would be sad to write more and not get more likes and comments. My average words per post this year seems low, but I have done a couple of the photo challenge posts, so that could explain that.
I know I’m the only person who actually cares about all of this, but I like to see numbers that show that I might eventually get better at this.
Also – Less than 200 words in this post. That won’t help that average.

My Year in Blogging

I’ve decided to start my yearly wrap up posts early this year. If I can remember what I did this year, I will do my personal year in review this week as well. Sometime around New Year’s Day I will do my year in reading post. This is a nice lazy “post my blog stats and top posts” blog post.

According to WordPress I have 5,582 views, 3,190 visitors, 914 likes and 403 comments in 2017. I know these numbers are very small for the more popular bloggers, but for a sad little blog like mine it is pretty darn good. Y’all need to work harder to get those numbers up next year. I trust you can do it if you try hard enough.

The majority of my views have come from the USA(4575) but Canada, United Kingdom. and India came in in triple digits this year. Good job other countries!

People found me with the following search terms –

  • survivor debbies delusions
  • debbie survivor delusional
  • being awkward is cool washington post
  • tater takes.com
  • i don’t believe in guilty pleasures
  • washington post date lab
  • clean and sober i’m just a little bit smarter and a hole lot older
  • world thoughts lyrics
  • tater brackets

The top referrers to my blog were Facebook, WordPress Reader, The Bloggess and Twitter

My most read post was On Marches and Life with 101 views.

There you have it. My year in blogging. I thought about posting my top 5 read posts, but that seemed too much like a desperate attempt at more clicks.
