The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Thanks for being part of this year’s amazing growth!

Just in case you’re curious…

Click here to see the complete report.

I think it’s always interesting to compare where you are with others, just for a sign post of development, so here are my stats.

I think it was a great blogging year!

Special thanks to the 13,000+ followers who visit regularly!

  1. Gives me a heads-up, as to the posts that were “before my time”. Many blessings to you and hubby in 2015!

    Well Mrs. Bird, is it snowing yet in the okanagan or are you bless with rain?

    Such a wonderful smile i would vote for you if i voted….

    Love these things. I’ll be watching for many of them. And get mine up, too.

    • Looks like most people seem to have received them in their email today, based on what I’m seeing in Freshly Pressed. 🙂

      • Jay Dee Says:

        Yeah, I got many today. I have several blogs, and each one got an annual report.

      • Me, too. I have one blog that had ONE post in 2014, back last January. How pathetic is that?! It had nearly 10,000 visits though, much to my astonishment. I shall have to try to remember to get over there once a month at least in 2015. 😉

      • Jay Dee Says:

        How does it get 10,000 visits? One of my blogs has over 80,000 visits, with only 12,000 this year. I haven’t been posting there much at all, but it seems to get most of its visit through google searches.

      • It’s my Rotary Invocation blog, so I presume desperate Rotarians are searching for invocations and stumble upon it.
        It’s funny isn’t it? On one blog 10k a year seems a lot, another 10k a month seems a lot, another 10k a day seems a lot. Someday maybe 10k hour? 🙂

      • Jay Dee Says:

        Haha. I think I would like to get to 10k a month first. I’m doing an average of 10k every 4-5 months at the moment.

      • One has to start somewhere, right? I think 2000-2500 a month is quite respectable for a private blog.

      • Jay Dee Says:

        I’ve been looking around at the other annual reports and have noticed that I’ve got a rather average blog in terms of visits. It’s actually quite enlightening seeing them all.

      • You get the pleasure of seeing where you fit in a continuum. Many will have less visitor, and many will have more.

      • Jay Dee Says:

        Exactly. I’m also hearing from some who say they have had more views, but fewer comments than my blog. It’s interesting seeing how that happens. But it’s probably as simple as going out to other blogs and commenting on them.

      • Yes, Jay. I think you’re right. If you stay ‘at home’ with your blog, and don’t go out and ‘introduce yourself’ at other blogs, no one knows who you are. If you make the effort to engage the ‘social’ part of social media, you ‘meet’ interesting people and start to develop relationships.

      • Jay Dee Says:

        Absolutely. It’s also more interesting to engage with people on their blogs. If course, reading the blogs, too.

  4. So cool! You’re such an inspiration.
