Month in Review: May

May is over. Gone. Done. Fini. Now we’re into June. The June bugs are safe for 24 more days. How did the month look in the color of numbers?

First off, starting the Facebook companion site to All In A Dad’s Work was a step in the right direction. Previously, I had been getting an average of 50 views per month from Facebook. In the month of May, 148 views came from that social media mongol. Three times as many!

The month ended with 1,831 views. This is up 315 views from April and is the third consecutive month to have an increase.

Those views were spread over 32 posts posted in May. That’s one extra post than April had.

There were 861 visitors. I don’t know where I put y’all, but thanks for stopping by! This 210 more than in April. Keep visiting this much and I’ll have to call you family.

That little star called the like button was clicked 560 times. I like that. Even if was 60 fewer likes. This page doesn’t run on likes.

It runs on comments. Your discussion drives this thing. I’m just here for the ride. There were 468 comments left last month. That’s 103 comments more! I love and appreciate your comments and the discussions we have. I’ll take this over the like button any day of the month.

Prior to May, I had 843 followers. By the end of May that number has shot up to 944! That’s a gain of 101 in a single month. C’mon everyone. Follow me. I don’t know where going but we’re having a great time getting there! That means I’m only 56 shy of that big 1,000 milestone. Thanks goes out to Coffee Flavored InkStuff My Toddler Says, and Robert Omwa for being my latest three followers who have a post written (I have received a few new followers who haven’t written their first post yet). Will you be next?

Besides my homepage (which always kills in the most popular category like it’s the high school football team’s quarterback) To the Boy in Walmart was the most viewed post with 141 views. In a distant second (like anyone who races Usain Bolt) was The Liebstering Liebsters with 79 views. In a lagging behind like a toddler sort of way was After the Kids Go To Bed with 41 views.

Read across the world, I made it to 55 countries. The U.S.A. Image result for american flag emoji led the way. They were tailed by Canada Image result for canadian flag emoji then Image result for united kingdom flag emoji then Australia Image result for australian flag emoji and Netherlands Image result for netherlands flag emoji.

May brought a few fun search terms.

  2. 100 new followers? Wow! You must tell me your secrets 😉 I’ve seen my blog views go up lately by posting stuff on StumbleUpon, but that traffic hasn’t created any engagement which is definitely more important.

    • If I knew what I did to get 100 followers in a month, I’d tell you. If I knew what I did I’d do it again so I could get a hundred more. The only thing I can think of it commenting on other’s blogs, whether you follow them or not.

  3. Good on you and keep it up 🙂 Feels good to see the numbers climb, right? Even if it’s not about it. And to those search terms… I can’t stop laughing about “can I crash and bang your mom”… Almost worth a separate post! I bet you would get heaps of views just because of the title 😉 Now excuse me while I keep laughing…
