I received a tag from The Galloping Beaver today so I am going to combine my tag obligations with a look at the statistics from this blog, which I started just under 4 months ago on March 3, 2007. According to the tag rules, I need to share 8 random things about myself so the random items I am sharing will also include my blog stats. Today I surpassed 10,000 visitors to my blog.
Total Views: 10,010
Best Day Ever: 285
Since WordPress excludes views by the blog writer/s this statistic is “significant” (h/t to The Progressive Economics Forum who gave me the idea for posting on blog stats last week). With 150 posts total in the past 121 days, I have been averaging 1.26 posts each day. I am the only author on this blog, but my partner took most of the pictures taken at the various Victoria Liberal events. I am grateful for his help on those occasions because it is really hard to take pictures and make notes on speeches at the same time.
Unfortunately, WordPress only keeps statistics on daily views for the previous 30 days. Some quick addition shows that in the past 30 days, I have had 3001 viewers for an average of 100 visitors each day in June.
The highest views I ever received in one day is 285 and through a quick review, my top posts in order of most hits received were:
Now that was a quick 8+ random items for ya Dave at the Galloping Beaver. To be fair though I will share a few other personal items about myself.
I am 39 years old.
My youngest child will graduate next year.
I am already having a hard time with the idea that I could be an empty nester as soon as next summer.
1. All right, here are the rules. 2. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts. 3. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves. 4. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules. 5. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
8 people chosen for a tag (if you have already been tagged, please ignore):

Happy Canada Day Everyone!!
