2012: The Year in Stats

2012 was a pretty big year.  We all survived the end of the world, I got my wisdom teeth out, I got Twitter and Pinterest, I accomplished some goals, and I gave my blog a new title and then it grew like crazy!

If you'd like to compare, last year's Year in Stats is here.

The most striking thing to me is that on the day last year with the most views ever, I got less views than I get on average now.  That really just blows my mind.

I actually don't know how I figured out which day had the most blog views last year, but I remember that one day this year I watched my stats page incredulously as I got more than 900 pageviews in a single day.

The month with the most blog views was December again, with 9,695 views. (That's four times as much as the highest month last year!) Also, IT'S OVER 9,000!  (Dragonball Z reference because I am a nerd and I have watched many many many seasons of that show.)

Post with the most views: this one

At the end of this year, I have 131 followers!!! You guys, last year I was crazy excited to have 26 followers. I can't even wrap my mind around how much my blog has grown in the past year.  I am still amazed that anyone wants to take time out of their day to read about my life and my random thoughts.  I've told you guys this before, but I'll say it many more times because it's true; You guys who read my blog are amazing!  My blog has been viewed a total of 75,154 times.  Again mind-blowing.  My head has exploded now and there are brain fragments scattered all across the room.  Not really though.  Awkward post ending is awkward.  Maybe next year I'll figure out how to end posts in a way that makes sense.  Probably not though.  This is the Rabbit Hole and we're all mad here.


  1. Congrats! My blog has grown a ton in 2012 as well! Hopefully 2013 will be even better :)

  2. Ending Blog post are the worst... I always struggle lol

  3. Congratulations! That's awesome - what's your secret?

    My blog shrunk in 2012, but I started growing it back by the end. Stupid work got in my way!

    1. I joined 20sb and some other blogging communities and it's also the first year I gave things away on other people's larger blogs (my handmade jewelry and ad spaces). And I joined Twitter and Pinterest which brought me more traffic.
