The common wisdom is that if you have a snappy or engaging title for your blog post, the more traffic you might experience. The number of blog posts over the last 24 hours that share 2013 highlights from bloggers across the inter-web is probably too many to count. However, I thought hopping on that bandwagon would be fun!
I started my blog back in August and made a commitment to post every day for an entire year, 365 posts. When I made the decision to blog I was feeling pretty full of myself; I thought, “of course I have enough to say every day for a whole year.” I will admit that the only day I did not share a thank you was on Christmas Day.
Here are my stats so far: 152 posts, 199 comments, 102 other bloggers following me, over 200 “likes”, 7,808 hits to the site. I’ve been reading at The Daily Post any and all of the suggestions to increase traffic to my blog and am hopeful it will pay off, in more ways than one.
My top five posts (conveniently hyperlinked for your reading pleasure), in order of most traffic, are:
Dave Dutra & High School Friends
Tales of a Fourth Grade Something
Fitness Together Helped Me Find a Job
Chip: He’s One of the Good Ones!
My ultimate goal is to take the year-full of posts and turn them into a book. No clue yet how that will happen, but I’m confident that it will! If anyone has suggestions or tips, feel free to send them along.
Today’s thank you goes out to all my future readers, commenters, and followers; and those of you who will buy my book when it’s published. Cheers to 2014!
