Month in Review


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 GarrettSamantha JamesVinnieh, 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).

Lastly, my top 6 commentors were:

Ann of Grubbs-n-Critters
Elen of Elen Grey | Deep in B-ville Writing Over the Garage
Anxious Mom of That’s What Anxious Mom Said
Tiffany of kismaslife
Faraday’s Candle
Pieter of Ah Dad

Thank you to everyone who stopped by to read. You really do make this blogging thing a whole lotta fun!

  1. Yes, why does the last week of every month tend to vanish in the blink of an eye? And some months — January, June, November, and December top contenders — seem to just fly by as a whole!

    Good for your blogging stats, though! 🙂

      • I blame the people who make the calendars. I swear they keep sucking a few minutes out of each month…every time they make Easter or Thanksgiving or daylight savings time early, I’m convinced they secretly zap about 9 minutes out of our year. 😛


  2. Impressive stats. I’ve been blogging since 2005 and have never had those kind of numbers. But it turns out I was doing it wrong, mostly. I’m glad I could be part of your success!
