February was good to me. It was even better to me than January so I broke up with January. January is now my ex-month. We have shared custody of my blog posts. It was for the better.
Anyway, on to the stats. The meat of the matter. The juice in the box…
February ended with:
2,099 views. That’s the first time I topped 2k! And it was a short month. That’s 597 more views than January. Over 1/3 more, for free!
624 visitors. That’s a gain of 197.
37 posts. That’s 8 more than January saw. Maybe that’s why January broke up with me. I didn’t
put out post as often.
745 likes. A gain of 172.
637 comments (two of which were from Grumpy Frog. That’s what Bang calls my dad) This is up 116. Thank you readers for the awesome discussions.
Besides my homepage with 334 views, the most popular post in February was To Crochet or Not to Crochet with 84 views. To crochet was definitely the answer. DW learned to crochet hats and loves it. She’s working on a pair of socks now. Next was 10 Questions I Asked My Kids with 75 views. This is a Thursday series I started where I do exactly as the title says. Their answers provide a little comic relief to the week. “Loaf”ing Around took the bronze. Making bread is pretty fun!
The Value of A Teacher is still in the lead by far with 503 views.
The most visitors were from the U.S., U.K., and Thailand. Canada, you were a close fourth! Canada and Thailand switched spots from January.
February saw a gain of 26 followers. My latest three followers are Niki of Niki’s Thoughts, Sue of Crazy Tuesdays, and Victoria of Time Out Or Else 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).
Most importantly is what the statistics don’t show. It doesn’t show the group of virtual friends, other bloggers like me and not like me. Without all of you coming back to read this dribble everyday the stats would paint a picture that looks more like a 5 year old’s finger painting than the Monet you see here.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by to read. You really do make this blogging thing a whole lotta fun!
