I sat here for a few minutes and thought, “Wow, nothing at all exciting happened today” so I figured now would be a good time to throw out some very thrilling blog numbers your way! Hooray!
This is the 776th post, which means it has been 776 days since we moved into the apartment. Yikes. It feels like yesterday! Who knew I’d still be doing this, and on a daily basis? Not me.
There have been a total of 670 published comments and about 99% of these have been from people I know. The mysterious “MomC” leads the way with 209 comments, followed by “Your Sister” (not your sister, my sister, and my oldest sister) with 145, and yours truly with 135. I should award medals. There have been a very small number of strangers commenting, most notably a representative from Bomcast after I bashed them (which is why I secretly disguise the name of companies now), and a very passionate protester of those inflatable latex objects you would release at a festival (check it out if you missed it). “Foiled! Foiled!” is the post with the most comments, 10. Yeah, we put a stress on the WordPress servers that day I’m sure.
I have 14 followers, all WordPress users and none of them people I know (Hi!). It could be just a ruse to get me to follow their blog, but I’ll be honest, I haven’t checked them out. Does this make me a bad person? I don’t know.
There have been 13,914 total views with the most popular post being Claire’s first day of kindergarten, which contained a lot of pictures that drove up the view count.
People from 49 countries have viewed this blog…hahahahahahaha…not really, but that’s what it says. I know two countries for sure, plus a few random countries that registered when people were on cruise ships. Other than that, just computers scanning various corners of the Internet. No, I don’t have any friends in Qatar.
Readership is trending downward as people realize I am neither interesting, nor funny. December is a big month though, probably due to the 25 Days of Christmas feature that people seemed to like, and because it is Christmas season and everyone loves Christmas. EVERYONE. There is no easy-to-gather data on the numbers of views during a Monopoly post, but I am sure the numbers are high….very high.
So I’ll keep plugging away for now. We’ll see how things look at the end of the year.
And the blog rolls on.
