July has been a record hitting month for me. A stressful month but I think it’s getting better. I hope it is anyway. But despite the fact I haven’t been using The Daily Post prompts like usual my traffic picked up this month. The number of views is 2K+ and rising, we still have a few more days left to catch some new views. A lot of those views are from you all coming back to read the multiple posts I’ve been making. So yay! thanks for following the stories going on.
But that really isn’t the metric I use to determine traffic. I love watching my views skyrocket and break records. Today broke my last record of 182 views and now I’m at 224 views and growing. For those of you who have a massive following I know these numbers are crap compared to yours. Compared to this time last year I had fallen off the posting wagon and even before that my numbers were abysmal… I should grab a screenshot of what those first few months looked like but they’ve all fallen off the view so I can’t.
The number I look at is visitors. All year my visitors have been going up. So each person who comes to visit me in a given month is going up. Yes it counts you everyday, but still it’s a much better number than the views. I’m one shy of 600 visitors for July. And this month I didn’t use the daily prompt at all. But I was tagging NaNoWriMo and I’m sure that’s pulling in a good bit of numbers, but hopefully those folks will now stick around. We’ll see.
Anyway. I want to thank all of you who take the time to read my ramblings and my ill-formatted stories that AJ writes. You all are awesome! To all those new comers, yes the whole point of the blog is for me, Nox, a fictional character to speak his mind. I don’t bite, and I’m not trying to fool you, but really I love talking – ask Sage and Dev (and soon Dee). I’m sure they’d like a break every now and then.
