A new leaf shows its color

Some lightening up is in order… despite my penchant for gloom and doom, conspiracy and politics of all descriptions… it is time for me to turn back to my more eclectic blogging themes:    Flowers, poems, camera work, and tales and ideas from the past, rather than disasters and looming political doom.




Stats Analysis (No Yawning)

My blog’s best day ever was November 6, 2015…. 99 VIEWS.

Guess what the topic was!    World peace?  No.  War? Nope.  Donald Trump? nah….   it was COOKIES.   The title was “Tea and Gingersnaps Anyone?”   I had so many followers over that day that I ran out of cups.  Really.

Here is a sort of half-baked analysis of the Statistical Information provided by WordPress to give bloggers an idea of their progress in publishing and showing off.   I does take some study to understand all of the charts and lists, but doing so is well worth the while.

For the first eleven days of this month, December 2015, Sometimes, has had 447 views, 159 visitors, 240 Likes, and 202 Comments.

The total number of followers…as of right now…is 373.  Most of them (17%) visit on Wednesday at 11:00 AM (10%).  (I’m not sure of the time zone, but I think it’s local time of the visitors.)

The total number of posts on Sometimes EVER  is 186–with a total of 6,859 views by 2,200 visitors.

I admit that I am confused about the ratio of views per visitor.   For instance, TODAY (December 11) here’s the tally:

159 Visitors

This begs some questions:  The site was looked at 447 times (I believe that includes my own views and reviews of it.)  SO, if 159 visitors looked at the site, how come 240 Liked it?   Did they like it so much some of them read it and pushed the LIKE button twice?

The best month so far for 2015 was…………   OCTOBER!!!

This analysis was fun to do.   I didn’t do any math, just trusted in the Stats as presented by WordPress.

It would be fun to do a giant chart for my wall (IF I had any available wall space in my office/book room.)    It’s fun to look over the Stats and see who commented, what posts were the most popular, what older posts emerge from my Archives.   I do have the “You May Also Like” button activated to refer readers to other posts I have made.

…wasn’t this fun?
