Today is the 14th day of blogging for the NaBloPoMo challenge.

I’d like to take this time to thank all the wonderful people who have followed me on this blog.

I’ve been blogging since February 20, 2014, so…a little less than 2 years. I really had no idea what I was doing on here in those early days. Some days, it seems I still have no clue. It amazes me every time I push that blue publish button, that it actually works!

According to the stats page, there are now 201 awesome people, who have been kind enough to follow. That is some kind of milestone for me, when I figured there wouldn’t be anyone out there who would even read my posts. I appreciate each one of you who took the time to visit, to follow, and send comments my way. Hopefully, you’ve found a post or two that you’ve enjoyed reading.

I don’t know that I have a certain ‘niche’ on here. Most of the things I write about are just what I’m interested in at the moment. I have no helpful hints, and nothing to sell, but hope I’ve entertained you with a laugh or two, or gave you something to think about. Hope you haven’t gotten too bored with all the challenge posts I do. I like all kinds of things, so I suppose this blog is basically a variety blog. (if anyone has suggestions for what I should write about, just let me know, and I’ll try) Comments are always welcomed, too.

Again, thank you so very much for sticking with me, while I continue to learn things about blogging, and hopefully giving you something entertaining to read. 🙂


Thanks for visiting! Peace }I{

WRITING 101 – STATS PAGEcropped-seal_v2-03

Today we were to look over at our blog’s stats page (I’m thinking that must be short for statistics?). Anyway, it shows all different things about our blog, such as how many views we’ve had on certain posts, what days are best to post on, etc. I don’t know why anyone besides ourselves would be interesting in reading about this. I suppose some bloggers are checking their page all the time, but for me, I don’t usually remember it’s even there. But, I did take a look today. It was like meh… whatever…I couldn’t tell much about the numbers, because numbers and I don’t mesh at all. I can’t make sense out of them. However, here’s what I saw on my stats page. Skip on down, if it’s as boring to you as it was to me. I answered a couple of other questions, too. 😉

  1. The most viewed day of all time was July 1, 2015. Why, I have no idea. The posts listed were just random ones, with poems coming in first place with 9 whole views. Woo hoo!
  2. Face Book seems to be leading something or other…not sure what that is about.
  3. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday are good days (gets more views), then the other days are right behind, and the weekends are in last place.
  4.  I’ve written 315 posts, and have 177 followers (thank you all so much) 🙂
  5.  The posts with the most (ha-ha rhyme time) are the ones when I do challenges. Those would be the A to Z Blog Challenge (twice), The Writing 201 – Poetry Course, The Daily Post Writing 101 Course, and OctPoWriMo Poetry Challenge.

So, there you have it…my stats.

Now, there were some questions posed we could answer.

  1. If you opened up your blog and found there were 50,000 new subscribers overnight, what would you think?

I’d think something was really wrong . No…at first I would scream with joy at seeing how popular my blog had suddenly become, for no reason whatsoever.

2.  If your blog became private only, so no one could even see what you wrote, would you still write it?

Why would I write a blog, if no one could see what I wrote? Isn’t that the whole point of having a blog? I think bloggers do like a bit of attention, and like to network with others. The way to do that is to let people know and see what you write. There are lots of other places to just write on a screen, I’m sure, and it doesn’t have to be an actual blog.

No, I wouldn’t have a blog at all, if no one could see it but me. I’d be writing, for sure…I’ll never stop writing, but it would be in journals, diaries, and notebooks, the same as I still do, and have done before blogging was a thing. Writers are writers…we write no matter where, or who sees it. We have to.
