My 2015 in Blogging Review

Category: Blogging

Jetpack sent me a blogging report in review to kick off the new year with data on my site’s activity in 2015. These are their findings:

Crunchy numbers

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 10,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

The busiest day of the year was August 31st with 160 views. The most popular post that day was Back to School: A Momma’s Rant.

I also did a screenshot from my wordpress stats page:

  5. Blog Awards: Nominated for a Liebster!

Yep. Awards is the way to go for more page views. Keep them coming!
