It has been a while – 2nd and 3rd Quarter of 2016 in Blogging Stats

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.

Blogging or the Lack Thereof in the 1st Quater of 2016

BloggingNow, that it is April, it is time for another one of my stats posts. I like to do these on a quarterly basis, to look at my blogs progression, not too much to compare myself to others, no, to compare my blog to itself.

With the Advent Calendar in December 2015, last year finished on a high note stats wise, you can read more on it here. I had a total of 2 189 views (it says 2188 in the post, so I guess the stats page was not 100% up to date back then) for December, my blog has since then not had so many monthly views… But the year is still young, and as I had been on quite a long blogging break, due to my mom’s bad health and passing away. Here you can have an idea of how my posting suddenly changed: Continue reading “Blogging or the Lack Thereof in the 1st Quater of 2016”
