Blog patterns & useless stats
Looking at my calendar of posts, a pattern emerges. Lately, I almost never blog on Sunday, Wednesday, or Saturday. Sundays, I fast from the computer. I don’t even turn it on. Wednesdays, Ethan has baseball practice in the afternoons, and the time that I would normally spend blogging is spent doing the other stuff that needs to be done around the house during a shortened day. Saturdays, I hardly ever blog, either. Since my hubby is gone 11-12 hours a day with commute and work, and since he also has a part-time job as the worship pastor at our church, our family time, which comes pretty much only on Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons, is short. Also, Ethan always has a game on Saturday.
In other blog patterns, for ununderstandable reasons, I had my highest traffic ever a couple of days ago, 331 visitors. I think that’s due to seasonal baking coming upon us. The blog post that continues to get the most hits is the Big Batch GFCF Christmas/Sugar Cookie Recipe. As of today, it’s gotten 7,515 total hits, out of 57,976 visitors, accounting for a whopping 13% of all blog visitors. Cutting Teeth out of Order is in 2nd place, with 8.5% of total traffic. GF Snack, Breakfast & Lunch Ideas has gotten 4%. Amo, Amas, Amat, pt. 2 (Your First Latin Lesson!) also has gotten 4%.
It used to bug me that I was a utilitarian blogger… that most of my visitors weren’t here looking for profound wisdom 🙄 ; just an answer to their questions. But, I’ve changed my mind. I find myself very pleased to be of any help to anyone out there. It’s humbling, it’s faceless, it shows little concern for me as a person… but, at least it’s easing some minds and providing a service of sorts.
