It has been a while – 2nd and 3rd Quarter of 2016 in Blogging Stats
Last year in October I posted my first real stats report, on the 3rd Quarter of 2015. Then there was the end of year report which included the 4th Quarter of 2015 as well as a yearly overview. So far for this year I only put up one report, the one regarding the 1st Quarter. It was meant to continue being a regular feature, but life happens, and I did not blog all that much.
Mostly for future reference, and as I want to leave 2016 in 2016, here is a detailed report of the 2nd and 3rd Quarter of Blogging! The 4th Quarter and a global report for 2016 will follow once this year has come to a close.

I don’t think I have ever had that many views, especially if I haven’t written. Happy New Year.

I have no clue how in the world my blog kept generating views without me writing anything. I did not do any promotions nor was I reading other blogs or leaving comments… I guess it’s my keenness to understand these things that pushed me to publish stat reports…
happy new year!
