WordPress once used to send us a report at this time of year with all sorts of statistics to let us know which of our posts were the most popular etc. They haven’t done this for a couple of years now, so I decided to have a little browse around the Stats pages myself.

So what, if anything, can I conclude from this? Well one thing is obvious, you really do need to have an About Page on your blog with some information preferably about yourself and the purpose of the blog. I must confess that when I receive a comment from a new blogger I always check out their About page before approving the comment. Something for new bloggers to take into account. Secondly it is interesting that the posts that get the most views are not my photographs. On the whole, with a couple of exceptions, it seems viewers of this blog prefer to read longer posts and those that are more personal i.e. my garden, my family, my life. Although I try not to bring a lot of my personal life into my blogs, it is apparent that those are the most popular posts. Something for me to consider in going forward. I have included links to the relevant posts so that if you have missed any you can pop along and have a gander. I would also be interested to know which type of my posts YOU prefer.
Happy New Year everyone. Let’s hope this is an improvement on the last one, though I wouldn’t mind another heatwave any time soon!
