Did you see it? I’m not talking about the Broncos beating the Panters. The Broncos were the “underdogs” so naturally I was rooting for them. Sorry Panthers. There, I talked football.
But I wasn’t asking if you had seen that football game. I was asking if you had seen where January went. I had it a minute ago, but I don’t know where it is now. (If my mother and DW had a nickel for every time they heard me say that they’d have A LOT of nickels) Here we are in the second week of February with another blizzard bearing down on us this afternoon and into tomorrow and I nearly forgot to do my month in review.
January saw the birthday of my DW (dear wife, darling wife, dreamy wife) and it saw the construction and Mama Nature’s demolition of an igloo eight days later. It also saw the 1st birthday of my blog!
Anyway, on to the stats. The meat of the matter. The juice in the box…
January ended with:
1,502 views. That’s exactly 70 more than December. That’s the first time I’ve topped 1,500. Next stop 2k.
447 visitors. That’s a drop of 43.
29 posts. That’s 19 less because December go two posts a day thanks to two Elves.
573 likes. This is down 134. Again, those Elves are screwing with my numbers.
518 comments. This is up by 113!
Besides my hompage with 199 views last month, Life’s Too Short To Waste Time Matching Socks was in the lead with 66. Sunday Share came in with 60 views. Epic Awesome took the bronze with 51 views. The Value of A Teacher still leads overall with 500 views. But Life Before/After Kids is still my favorite.
The most visitors were from the US, UK, and Canada, respectively. Thailand you were close fourth!
December ended with 295 WordPress followers. That’s a gain of 42. So close to 300! Keith Garrett. Samantha James, Vinnieh, and Kaan are my latest four followers. Will you be next? (Hint: you don’t need a WordPress account AND you’re email is kept confidential. Not even I am shown your email address).
