WordPress just sent me a message in my “comments” that I’ve had a “spike in my stats.” Wow…That makes me feel good, even though I know that the so-called spike means that my viewers went from Zero to 31.
I do check into my Stats now and then, its interesting to see who is reading what on SOMETIMES.
My all time favorite (in ten years on the blog) remains a bit about Gingersnap Cookies, and pretty much tied: a Cinnamon Roll feature. That tells me that the way to y’all’s heart is through your stomachs. Not that that is such a bad thing. I once discovered the way to winning young grad student guys’ hearts was to make known that one of my filing cabinet drawers was filled with such as saltine crackers and peanut butter, packages of cookies, and little packaged fruit drinks.
I would like to think that my stat-spikes are due to my work in intellectual pursuits, brilliant analyses of quantum physics, astute advice for the lovelorn, or the occasional endearing and heart-felt poem. But in reality, the “spike” is probably due to some more mundane topic, a silly limerick, or a photo of my little cat Alice doing something outstanding.
I see that the spike was due to my post entitled “tree.” Today 21 visitors viewed the post 38 times. 1 got 3 “likes.” No, I don’t really understand those stats either. The best day this month was apparently when 18 Visitors each visited 1.39 times…for a total of 25 Views. That was the day my posts about 1) The National Guard; and 2) Where’s Alice?
During my ten years authoring SOMETIMES, I have had 926 posts. 32,103 Views; 16,496 Visitors. My best day ever was May 13, 2016. I have 960 Followers.
I have to do better than this!
