The WordPress people send me two statistical reports a year regarding my blog, and of course I can look at statistics on my administrative page at any time. I don’t stress it or check very often, so I was quite surprised when the recent report from WordPress said people from 61 different countries viewed my blog in 2015!
Most of the countries were predictable: the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, and New Zealand. But there were views from every continent except Antarctica! The place I got the biggest kick out of was Iceland 🙂
This improvised log cabin block, which was made into a pillow, appears to have been the most viewed picture on the site.
And my most popular post was about Jo Glover, who first developed Big Stitch quilting but doesn’t always get enough credit now that everybody does it. You can find that post HERE if you missed it.
Another popular topic was my ongoing modern sampler quilt, and there’ll be much more about that coming up soon. A few of those blocks are shown below.
The stats show my readership growing steadily over the 2-1/2 years I’ve been blogging. The growth is slow, but I’m blogging for fun (and I’ve kept my day job!) so that’s just fine. I’ve made some new friends, which is even better.
As always, I’m amazed by the power of the internet. I’ll skip the chance to philosophize about that and just wish anyone who reads this a very happy 2016!
It was fun to look at the stats, wasn’t it? I don’t pay much attention to them anymore but will admit a thrill when I see a country that doesn’t show up often, or ever before! Blogging for fun — that’s the key, I think. When we don’t enjoy it, we shouldn’t do it, right?
Wow, Mary! Congratulations, but no surprise! Keep up the great work!
Thanks for visiting! It’s always good to hear from you 😊
Enjoyed your big-stitch post–thanks for the link as I must not have been following then. And I’m liking your sampler. Stats are fun, especially the spread of countries.
So beautiful and colorful! Looking forward to another fabulous year of your creative genius!
I’m blushing! Thank you!
I love getting the reports, but I can’t say that I learn a lot from them. It’s just interesting. Slow growth is the best kind.
