George and I always wonder about who really comes to our blog. We do this because it is always amazing that you all care about what we have to say and of course we want to keep our audience engaged and entertained so we want to know who that audience is in order to do so. Luckily, we blog with a free blogging platform called WordPress and they are ever-so-helpful in compiling all the year-end stats for us to review. As I was reviewing all the stats I came across a few cool things that I wanted to share.
Cool Thing #1:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 15,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
Cool Thing #2:
The top 5 most active commenters were these lovely ladies
Thank you Sandy! Thank you Aunt Sue! Thank you Shari! Thank you Carol (MOM)! and last but not least Thank you Erin!
Cool Thing #3:
Facebook was our biggest referrer for our blog. So most of you that came to our blog was because we lured you in through our Facebook account.
Cool Thing #4:
The most popular blog in 2011 was the blog about George’s tattoo. In case you didn’t catch that one, you can read it here.
Cool Thing #5:
One of the most popular search terms used to find our blog was, “Abbey Road.” How appropriate?
Thank you to our audience, you have all been instrumental in each an every one of our 56 blog posts that were created in 2011. We hope you continue to enjoy The Herron’s through 2012.
