My last Month in Review was just 10 days ago as I was late in getting to it in February. Now we’re into the third month of the year. I’m not exactly sure if March has come in like a lion or lamb. Perhaps a gentle lion? Or maybe an aggressive lamb? We’ve had clouds and rain for the first two days of March, but it’s been 9 C. Nova Scotia’s groundhog, Shubenacadie Sam, saw his shadow and therefore predicts an early spring. Regardless of shadows, spring will officially be here on the 20th. Incidentally, that’s the day before my parent’s
900th 42nd wedding anniversary.
Anyway, last month was a rough month in the beginning and it pretty much threw the rest of the month for a loop and barrel roll. If my blog were a soapbox car in a soapbox derby, my stats would be the perfect downhill.
February saw 19 posts. This is down from 24 the month prior.
Since there were fewer posts and I was reading fewer blogs, I received 1,263 views for the month. This is down 62 from January. I hope to turn this around in March and get those numbers climbing again. Last April saw 2,000+ views per month. It would be nice to be there again.
There were 565 visitors which is down 30. I’m as grateful for those 565 that I am for the 595 because they are the ones who came for a read and stayed for a Coke and a chat.
391 people were inspired enough to click that star – the like button. I like that, even though it is exactly 100 fewer likes than January.
My favorite stat to look at though (besides views, of course) are the comments. This is what brings me back to blogging. I could have a million views a day, but they would be meaningless if there were zero comments. Thanks to the 330 of you who were so kind, so moved, and so inspired to leave a comment in February. This is only 12 fewer than January. Not bad considering I had 5 fewer posts. I wonder who left the most comments?
February’s most popular post was Get to Know Me Tag with 77 views. In this post I made up some fun questions and directions then tagged some blogging friends. I’m not sure if it’s still going or not, but it was fun to see it pop up. In a close second was Sunday Share 6.This is one of my favorite recurring posts to do. Here I give a shout out to some bloggers and a post I enjoyed reading. It’s a fun to network as what goes around comes around.
33 countries came to visit. This is down 8 countries. The top three were the US, the UK, and Canada. The Netherlands and Australia were knocked down to fourth and fifth!
When I wrote my last Month in Review 10 days ago I had 777 followers. Since then I’ve gained 10 followers bringing it up a total 787. That’s a follower a day! My latest three followers are Happily Tanned, Glesgadelic, and Miss Mummy Life. I’m well on my way to 1,000. Will you be next?
