I have a large fan base for my blog that reads my blog regularly:
1. My husband.
2. My mom.
3. My sister.
4. My mother-in-law.
5. A friend from church.
Experts talk about optimizing search engines for your blogs, being disciplined in posting to gain traffic, offering incentives and helpful information to attract readers, focusing on topics so readers know what to expect.
Me… I just write cuz it’s fun and I like to take pictures.
And as to planning and consistent content? Well… ahem. Let’s just say I’m working on it.
Ok, maybe I’m not.
Thus, the overwhelming numbers of people who read my blog. I have no one to blame but myself. But I’m good with it. I go to sleep at night without any hit to my self esteem because only 2 people read my blog that day.
So, it was with great amusement that tonight I checked my stats page and it looked like this:
The big spike on the right was the Sacramento Youth Symphony blog — I’m thinking they probably notified parents or something, and it also got posted on Twitter.
It was quite funny to find that the readership of that one post was 9100% above the average readership of any other single post.
I have no idea on why there was a spike on Oct 26. I didn’t even post anything on Oct 26.
