This year I posted 234 blog posts. That is a lot of posts! I had a 23 day streak at one point and Monday was my most productive with 41 posts. If you read my blog I share what I am thinking in the moment. I don’t care how many read what I write, but I write more to get ideas out of my head so I can move on.
However, I do love to see what people are actually reading. A major focus for me in 2015 is streamlining, learning to have a more narrowed focus on what I do and spend time on and to be more productive in 2015 by saying NO!
In order to do that I looked at my end of the year data to see what you actually spent time reading. It is an interesting eye opener and gives me the opportunity to think about the direction I want to head in for 2015.
Thank you everyone who took time to read my blog posts. I appreciate all 21,000+ views so much as it is nice to know that people do read my rants and ideas from time to time. I look forward to hopefully creating more quality content in 2015
Here is a breakdown of 2014 here on the site.
Top 5 Pages
Over the course of this year I have tweaked my website probably more than I should, but I am always trying to find a way to make things easy to navigate while making everything I create accessible. I created a ton of pages this year and here are the top 5. No real surprise here. All of these are things that people can do! These pages are action pages where readers can learn how to do something.
The top referring sites in 2014 were:
This shows me that as I rethink my social media that Google Plus is still alive and kicking despite what people think. I was surprised that LiveBinders was on the list. I am curious what binders my work is shared on so I can see, but that is not at my disposal.
I had visitors from 114 different countries! To me, this is the coolest stat of them all!
Last, here are my top 25 posts from 2014. Looking at these I have a hard time finding trends or anything to make sense of, but I realize that many of my posts have a negative tone in the title. Three podcasts made the cut, but surprisingly that did not translate into people listening to them. Most of these posts challenge the reader to think about their ideals, vision, and how they operate. There are times when I question posting these thoughts because I don’t want to sound like I have answers. Rather, 2014 taught me that I have more questions than answers and hopefully 2015 will allow me to find more answers.
