The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 400,000 times in 2013. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 17 days for that many people to see it.
Wow, that number of views isn’t bad for someone who has cut back significantly on her blogging (remember the days when I’d have five, six or seven posts or more in a day?). I have been noticing in some of my recent “current top posts” lists at the bottom of my page that some posts from “way back” are starting to pop up. This is pretty cool, actually, because, for me, that most likely means newer RA fans are exploring the blog and discovering and sharing some of these entries with other fans.
I am less thrilled that posts on a certain “erotic romance” trilogy not part of Mr. Armitage’s oeuvre keep popping up consistently in the top five. *sigh* And I understand with the film finally coming out this year, 50 SoG will be all over the radar . . . oh, well, if I have steered anyone in the right direction (i.e., away from the blasted books), then I consider it my ongoing PSA campaign.
I am sending out a big “Thank YOU” to all my regular readers and commenters, and congrats to GrooverGreen’s first-hand account from Popcorn Taxi event in Sydney for being the number one most-read RA-related post of the year! Here’s hoping I can bring you posts that are interesting, funny, entertaining and on occasion, thought-provoking, in 2014. More on wishing Mr. A a great New Year in another post . . .
