Our first assignment for Blogging 201 (Feb 2015) was to set three goals for our blog. First, I thought it would be helpful to understand my current status and site statistics for the past 5 months since I started this blog. It seemed like that might help me to determine realistic targets that I might be able to achieve this month.
See my post Blog Goals – Feb 2015 which describes the goals I established in Blogging 201 (Feb 2015) to accomplish by the end of this month. Originally, I included these statistics there, but decided to extract it into this separate post since it really was just background details that everyone might not be interested in.
Currently, I have created 383 posts, for an average 2.5 posts per day. They have had 3,955 total views by 2,149 unique visitors to my site, for an average of 26 views per day with 72 being the most in a single day. There are 104 WordPress followers reading my blog updates, as well as 120 Email subscriptions, 10 Twitter followers, and 7 Facebook followers. I have received 216 comments from readers, and there have been more than 715 likes on my posts.
Here’s a summary of monthly site statistics since I started my blog that some might find interesting.
