In summary — 2019 was a year that this blog skyrocketed for views, likes, and comments — emphasizing on the latter. About half of my views come from the USA, while the other half comes from 93 other countries — mainly India, the UK, and Canada. If I stay on track, I should reach well over 10,000 views before 2021 and possibly up to 20,000 if I’m lucky. As for followers, a reasonable goal would be to reach 500 by 2021.
In 2019, I wrote a Top 25 LDR post that went viral by skyrocketing past my average amount of post views — it gets viewed practically every day and should continue growing views through 2020, most certainly should surpass 1,000 views, and possibly closer to 2,000 by 2021.
My top viewed posts are a balanced mix of subjects: a ranking of dark/sad Lana Del Rey songs, my “about me” page, my memorial tribute to my grandma, a music festival review, an investigation on black cats, part of my 30-day challenge, along with four poems. My top liked posts are ALL poems (with the exception of “The Black Cat.”) Poems are much shorter and quicker to read compared to my other posts, which may explain their popularity.
Wow, that was a lot! If you made it this far — thank you! I just ask one more favor of you. Since you know how much I love stats, give me more information to work with. Please take this final poll! This is for YOU — the reader because you are so amazing for the support!
Thanks again for learning about my blog! Hope you enjoyed my stats. You may have noticed I recently changed my blog theme. I’m still not sure if I’m going to stick with it or not. I like it but there’s a few things I’m iffy about. So we’ll see. Anyway, may 2020 be an awesome year for you full of growth and abundance!
