This will be the quick and dirty review of my WordPress stats. If y’all REALLY insist, I’l put up all the nitty gritty details.
I did 46 posts – the exact same number as last year, so I’m up to 92. My blog was viewed over 2,700 times – not too bad. 56 of those views went to my most popular post, my salute to Veterans’ Day “When History Becomes Hearsay”. Oddly enough, number two was my “Unplanned Unload”. Yeah – basically a crabbing session, and it’s number two. Only me… 😉
I scored hits from 45 countries – US the most (no duh), but I got Commonwealth love from Canada and the UK, in that order. My top referal sites, other than WordPress itself, were my grampa Archon, my BFF Frank, the lovely and talented Rarasaur, and the even more lovely and talented Brainrants. (Well, one out of two ain’t bad. I’ll let you figure out which one…. 😀 ) And my top commenters? Yep – Frankie gets the gold, Her Most Royal and Dignified Highness Elyse the Incomparable scores the silver, truly insane Tom gets bronze, with Fasab and the wonderful Benze finishing out the top 5. Frank alone granted me 63 comments, a dozen more than Elyse and almost twice of the other 3. Frank, in all seriousness, thank you – I would literally be nothing without you!
So that’s it for 2013. Here’s hoping 2014 will have a LOT more posts, a LOT more visitors, and a LOT less drama for my little world. And to EVERYONE who has signed onto this blog, commented, read, or whatever, thanks to you, too. A few years ago, I couldn’t picture ANYBODY wanting to read my drivel. Now, I’ve got nearly 200 followers, I’ve posted just shy of 100 times, and I’ve got people reading me from all over the world. I will never cease to find this amazing, and I will never be able to properly express my gratitude.
Happy New Year!
