2012 blog stats

January 1, 2013

2012-blog-button 3

WordPress sent out a fun “year in blogging report” and I thought I’d share some of my 2012 statistics, in case anyone else is as geeky as I am.   I posted a total of 440 times in 2012 and uploaded 465 photos.  My busiest day of the year was January 28th with 2969 views.

My top posts of the year were:

Interestingly enough, the review of Little Princes was the only one of the top posts originally published in 2012.

My top search terms were:

  • whey
  • Cassandra Clare
  • Cakes
  • bermuda onion
  • John Grogan

I received hits from 161 countries with the United States, Canada and the UK bringing the most.

My top commenters for 2012 were:

I appreciate everyone who reads and comments on my blog and am looking forward to another fun year of blogging.  Happy New Year!

    It’s odd the posts that become the most searched. My biggest hits come from an old middle grade review.

    I hope you continue to host Wondrous Words Wednesday. I one of my favorite memes. Isn’t it fun to see a report like WordPress gave you? I’ll bet it told you things you never suspected. Happy New Year !

    Interesting. Don’t think Blogger does this for us, but it would be lovely if they took it up.

    Happy New Year!!

    Wow! Super impressive.

    I like looking at stats. They can be surprising at times, although it doesn’t surprise me that Little Princes was a top post. I LOVED that book!

    Still laughing about CONFETTI CAKES and I AM A CHEESEMAKER!

    I just did a wrap-up but didn’t think to include stats. That would be interesting to see. Happy New Year, Kathy!
