I have not checked the stats on my blog lately and just today gave it a thorough look. WordPress offers some terrific programs to check all types of stats on blogs – page views, search engines, links, clicks, daily, weekly, monthly, etc. They offer a terrific summary if you keep track of that sort of thing. I kind of look at it once in a while as I am still doing this for fun and it’s an enjoyable hobby. I don’t really know where I want to take this blog yet but I’m having a blast in the meantime. Discovered some really nice people out in the blogosphere that write some terrific blogs which I follow now. I also had help along the way from a bunch of good friends and fellow bloggers that offered advice and instruction. I really did not know what I was doing!
When I started this blog near the end of October 2012 I did not know what to expect. I did know that I wanted to be creative, humorous, a bit sarcastic, and write about things that interest me. Things I experience living in NYC on a daily basis. Current events, food, fun, fitness, news items, drinking, dining, people, life situations, stuff that makes me laugh, stuff that makes me cringe, and a smorgasbord of other things that catch my fancy. I was hoping that the readers along the way would also find what I scribble down into my blog interesting. At the start I was just rediscovering my writing chops, and I am hoping that the quality of my posts have been elevated since I began. I always have ideas floating around in my brain on future posts to write, as living in NYC offers a plethora of experiences to choose from. Much more to come!
So today when I looked at my blog stats I saw that it has gone over 10,200 page views, and over 1,000 comments! Whoa! I did not expect that. I know to many veteran and long time bloggers this is no big deal, but it’s still a cool number to hit. Kind of makes all this craziness worthwhile to see those kinds of numbers after only around four months. I’m still even trying to figure out all this social networking stuff to use yet!
To all those that help, read, comment, and follow my blog – Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! I am humbled and much appreciative. Here’s to you!
