Here we are in October.
It’s the month of Canadian Thanksgiving and Halloween. Fortunately, they’re not on the same day. Though they could be. Family get togethers can be pretty scary sometimes. Imagine Thanksgiving with the Munsters.
September saw the first day of school and the first day of fall. I managed to publish 27 times. I’ve now posted 27 times three months in a row.
September also brought 1,415 views to my little blog. That’s 105 fewer than August. Since May my views have been holding steady at around 1500 views (give or take a few). Of those views, 499 became visitors. That’s a dip of 57 from August. Thank you visitors for hanging around, making yourself at home, and reading for a while. If you were really in my home I’d offer tea or coffee or margaritas.
The little blue like button was clicked 478 times for a decrease of 68.
There were 373 comments. This fell 120. I’m not concerned though. 373 comments in one month ain’t too shabby!
My blog has travelled the world over. 38 countries came to read. That’s 5 more countries than last month!
Besides my homepage, Taboo Words for the Taboo Word Challenge was the top read post with 56 views. The Taboo Challenge was great and everyone who participated did awesome. We were a small but highly dedicated group. In a close second place was Sunday Share with 52 views. In a close third with 48 views was Community where I discussed a phone call I received from a neighbor who called to inform me of a potential creep while our kids were outside playing.
I’m now up to 571 followers! That’s a gain of 27.
The top commentors had the closest competition I’ve ever seen on my blog. The top three commentors are separated by one comment each!
Thanks to everyone who participated in my Taboo Word Challenge. It was great fun even if it did force us to think a little more creatively than we are accustomed to. Thank you to every one who stops by to read this gibberish. Your comments and discussions make it all worth while!
