I don't normally look at my stats because I am pretty happy with my blog where it is at. Also, I don't get what the difference is between page views and unique visitors, etc... But, this week I did look at my stats (only the ones off the blogger dashboard, I don't use a separate counter). It as very interesting!
Very early in my blogging life I posted about reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid online (did you know it started its life on the internet as a comic book on funbrain?). That has been my all time most visited page of all time. Interesting. I posted it in 2008 and still get people commenting on it. I am not even sure you can still read the comic online!
My second most popular post is one I did after I read Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. I had been watching the UK version of Skins and had fallen in lust for Luke Pasqualino and decided he would be the perfect Patch. This gets a lot of views, but no one comments, which makes me wonder what people search to actually get this hit, because I don't think it has anything to do with Hush, Hush!
This year my top five most viewed posts were:
1. Tween Tuesday: New Series I Want to Try
2. Quick Reviews: Boarding Schools Edition
3. Today in the Library
4. My Thoughts: After Eden by Helen Douglas
5. Book Snobbery
I was pretty glad to see that overall I am getting more visitors than I thought, sometimes a lot more! I enjoyed blogging for the most part this year, had my slow times, but am overall feeling glad I am continuing on with this endeavor.
I just love sharing about books!
