The Daily Post’s Daily Prompt 2/9/2016 | The Stat Connection
“Go to your Stats page and check your top 3-5 posts. Why do you think they’ve been successful? Find the connection between them, and write about it.”
Hello, friends! For today’s prompt, I did a little digging through my stats for 2016 and 2016, and discovered that the following are my top 5 posts on my blog. My top pages were actually my Home/Archives page, as well as my About Me page, but I don’t count those as posts. I’m actually not that surprised by these results, as I’ve noticed that my personal blogs, as opposed to my prompt posts or reviews, tend to get a bit more attention and feedback. Here are my top 5 posts, with links and descriptions, in case anyone wants to check them out:
1) My Thoughts On First Birthdays
Exactly what the title states. My son was creeping up on his first birthday, and I was feeling a lot of pressure from society, and family, to throw him a big bash. Spoiler alert: I had other ideas.
2) Sinking Ships
A complete stranger attacked my parenting via Twitter, after following the leads of two of my so-called-friends, who had been sub-tweeting about me that morning, all over a completely innocent tweet, which was taken out of context, and blown out of proportion. It got heated. Spoiler alert: I’m an awesome mom.
3) 15 Facts About Me!
Just some more fun with my Twitter followers, involving a graphic, some hearts, and some fun facts about yours truly. There was even a Part 2! Spoiler alert: I’m not very interesting.
4) Most Terrifying Experience of My Life. WTF!
Just another day in the life of living in shitty apartments. Yellow jackets burrowed into my apartment, and my neighbor had to come rescue Liam and I. Spoiler alert: Yellow jacks are assholes.
5) Why I Chose to Leave WoW
World of Warcraft has played an unimaginably large part in my life, and after many years of playing, I say goodbye (for now?). Spoiler alert: Sad post is sad.
So there you have it! If you normally read my daily prompts, or my baby blogs, and want to get to know a bit more about what goes on behind the screen, I would suggest checking those out. I lead a verrry interesting life (no, not really).
Thanks for reading, friends!
Okay. I don’t tend to focus too much on my blog stats, but sometimes, I do get curious about my referrers, clicks, search terms, etc. This morning, after getting up with the baby, I turned on Special Agent Oso for my little man, and plopped down at my computer to check how my blog did yesterday. I was a bit surprised when this popped up under search terms for this morning…
Yep. Someone actually searched for THAT in Google, and my blog popped up. Supposedly. For scientific research purposes, I Googled that exact search term, and… guys, DO NOT do it. Just don’t. Now… it was only 6:00 in the morning where I live when I checked this. So either someone is an early riser (if you know what I mean), or maybe they were outside of the U.S.? I don’t know. Heck, they could have been trying to look up a movie that wasn’t porn… but if the search results that I got when I searched were any indication of the movie that they were looking for… then I highly doubt it.
Oh, and for the record, I scrolled through 5 or 6 pages, and my blog never popped up. So how the hell…?
On second thought, I don’t want to know. Nope. Nope nope nope.
Thanks for reading my non-porn blog, friends.
