October in Review

October shaped up to be good. Better than I expected, really. October saw 29 posts, second only to April’s A-Z Challenge. I missed a thousand views by only 126. So close. Perhaps November will see 1,000 like March did.

September was a slow month so it doesn’t surprise me that October gained 350 more views with 874. There were 297 visitors, 80 more than last month. The US, Canada, and Thailand had the most views this month. I’ve gained 16 more followers and now stand at 180. My newest followers are RaphaellaFabulous With Glitches, Siuquxe Movies, and Darly Darly. Will you get me to 200?  You don’t need a WordPress account to get posts right in your inbox!

Besides my home page, Good Cop, Bad Cop (or pissing off an 8 year old) was my most viewed page for October. My most viewed this year is The Value of a Teacher. And Sink Soup is one I thought would do better. It’s not as delicious as it sounds. I did update my About page if you haven’t seen it yet. Check it out, you might learn something about me. Or not.

We survived made it through Thanksgiving and Halloween. This month we’ll celebrate American Thanksgiving. That weekend will probably see a few Christmas decorations go up. That, in turn, will bring the much anticipated arrival of Woody and Elfis. I’m sure they’ll bring a little trouble. But that’s next month.


A Month in Review

I was really surprised how March played out stats wise. As usual, everything went up up up. March was my third month of blogging. I had 22 posts which is actually down 3 from February. My most popular post by far, and it’s still getting views is The Value of a Teacher with 472 views which is 5 times more than the second most popular post. March brought 1,035 views and 649 visitors. That’s up 274 views and 321 visitors. The busiest day was March 5th with 279. There were 146 likes which is up 25. There were 136 comments which is up only 2 from February. AnnGrubbsnCritters was the top commenter and Anxious Mom was a close second. Thanks! In March I gained 24 more followers (56 total) and had visits from 24 different countries which is a 4 countries more than February. For the second month running the US, Canada and UK were the top three countries to visit my blog.

In other updates, I ran 100.8 miles in March. I’d like to keep this up for the remainder of the year, possible adding on a few more! I am currently at 217 miles for this year. As of March 1st, I was down 60 miles. I am now only 35 miles behind my target of 252. Two more 100 mile months will get me caught up and surpass that deficit.
