Well, here we are at the last post for 2012. I want to thank everyone for all the love and support of my site. When I started my blog in February, I really didn't know what to expect. I didn't know if anyone else cared about what I wrote, or created, or shared. I had a goal of posting an average of one a week, or 52 posts for the year. It wasn't easy, let me tell you!
My intention for the blog was sharing all my crafting creations. Reality set in when I found out how much time it took uploading pictures, writing the post, checking out other blogs to share with, sharing to those blogs, commenting, commenting, and more commenting. And all this with slow, crawling dialup. All this adds up to no time for crafting, and nothing made to post about. This is the reason why I included blog hops, giveaways, etc.
Even so, I was able to keep my original goal of 52 posts (including this one). Let me share with you what my blog statistics show up to now:
52 Posts - 1 per week average
394 Comments - half are my replies of course
115 Followers - 11 bloglovin, 17 linky, 87 GFC
2 Awards - token I know, but I'm still proud of them
1 Featured - thanks to Marigold's Loft
6493 Pageviews - all time history tracking
2975 Pageviews - tracking posted on main page since install around June
805 Highest Month Pageviews - November (Update: December had 1060, woo-hoo)
The top referring site was SimpleandSane.com with 368 pageviews, and Organize365.net comes in second with 239. Thanks guys. You rock!
My Lotus Flower post received the most pageviews at 205.
So there you have it. It's way past my expectations. I still have a lot to learn about blogging, but with these figures, I feel I'm off to a good start.
Thank you all so much for taking the time to include me and my blog in your life. It means the world to me.
Everyone have a wonderful and fulfilling 2013!
