This blog is two years old!
For last year’s anniversary, I posted blog statistics and blogging goals for 2010. How did the second year compare to the second? Let’s find out.
(13 fewer than in 2009)
(95 more than in 2009 — Thank you, readers!)
Total Views: 3,730
(about 870 more than 2009)
Most Views in a Month: 354 in March
(96 more than September 2009)
Most Views in a Day: 40 on August 22
(6 more than on September 8, 2009)
Most Viewed Posts from 2010:
The First Letter of Character Names
Are Non-Genre Authors Slow? (Parts I and II)
The Hero vs. the Main Character
Terms Bringing in the Most Traffic:
bliaut / surcoat and similar terms took about 90 visitors to Glimpse
writing on mirror / mirror writing / writing in condensation
(for How to Fight Writer’s Block With a Mirror)
variations of “forever by judy blume”
(for The Elusive Definition of a Young Adult Novel)
Like last year, the tags on images brought in most of the traffic from external searches. I still wonder if this is problematic for visitors.
Visitors wanting to know a way or reason for writing on a mirror might find useful information in my post. Unfortunately, visitors won’t find on Shadows any sewing instructions, history, or descriptions of medieval garments (such as a bliaut and surcoat) nor a review of Judy Blume’s novel Forever…yet.
Goals: “My goals for 2010 include convincing more people to subscribe–
Fast and easy! Click on the button now!–
posting more consistently, and presenting readers with something useful in every post.”
Did I meet these goals? Yes, no, and not as much as desired.
I won’t set goals for 2011, because there’s too much uncertainty. Blogging is low on a long list of priorities list. Instead of guessing at what I can accomplish for the year, I’ll concentrate on private, monthly goals.
Do you have any suggestions for me or advice for bloggers/writers in general? Now is a great time to speak up.
