November has a couple of holidays, the start of the holiday shopping season, and a new second best month of the year for your favorite blog! Yep. It’s kind of a big deal because toward the end of the month I noticed a lot less traffic right around the Thanksgiving holiday. And I STILL managed to best last month by a healthy margin. Now let’s get into some stats. The previous record will be in parenthesis.
Posts: 29 (31)
Likes: 417 (584) I’m fully convinced this record will never fall.
Followers: 2005 (1866)
Not much to say here. I had more unique visitors in November than any previous month, but still just barely fell short of a new record for overall site views. I’m just going to start considering the month of May as my blogging golden age. Cause nothing I’ve done since then has been able to match it. Oh well. I’m content with where I am right now. Now on to some posts.
Post you may Have Missed
So that’s it. The surprise of the month was the top post. I usually don’t check to see what’s leading the way until I write my recap and this one just narrowly had more views than one other.
Two things to tell y’all about December. First, I’m going to stop posting poems on the weekends. I feel like y’all don’t see them that way. So I’m just going to mix them in with my regular posts during the week. Second, I’m going to test out a new posting time of the day. I’ve tried posting at midnight before and it didn’t really do anything for me. But ever since I began blogging daily I’ve always posted at 9:40 a.m. Central time. And it’s worked. But now I’m going to try the afternoon. Why? I don’t know. Maybe I’m greedy and just want as many people to read my posts as possible. But really, who doesn’t want that?
So here’s to December!
And instead of reading this post on your WordPress app, read it on your computer or browser on your phone! Why? Cause it’s snowing on Write me a Book, John! It will be for the next month or so.
