Happy 2nd blogversary to us. It’s been 2 years since we’ve opened up shop. 2 years. I can’t really believe it. Well, I can actually but it seems longer to me. Paul thought it was our first and I thought it was our third so did double-check. I guess it’s not him that does the work so it didn’t seem that long for him and at times, I feel it’s never ending.
Here is the first post I did on Trinity’s tooth coming out. March 31, 1008.
I’m not going to bore you to death with all the minute details but here’s a rough summary of our Dashboard Stats that none of you ever get to see. I used to look at them quite often in the beginning but I don’t really anymore too much.
We’ve had 2,262 Posts and 27,276 Comments
Our top post is Martha Stewart vs. Maxine earning us 21,108 hits.
Our second top post is Would You Live in a Church? And that gave us 17,256 hits.
Our top hit gaining Question of the day is “When did you go to your first funeral and that got 7,544 hits.
Our top post hit wise is still 12 year old wants her belly button pierced, written by Lisa. It got 136 comments and has had to date, 9,578 hits.
Our second top hitting post was Do you believe in magic, written by Sue. It got 22 comments and has had to date, 7,339 hits.
We’ve had a total of 366,678 total views. The views that you see are only the views since I added that counter.
Our busiest day was December, 22, 2009. We had 3,397 views and there was nothing special on that day so I have no idea why people were flocking here that way.
Our average number of hits each day is 1,087.
This is what we did last year on our blogversary.
This year I’d really just like to talk about you guys. What makes you keep coming back? We couldn’t/wouldn’t have this blog if you didn’t all come. How did you find us? How long have you been coming? If you’re reading this but don’t make comments, your hits count so thank you for returning. We’d much rather you join the conversation but for whatever reason you don’t want to, thanks for coming back.
When I think about what I wanted to accomplish when I started this blog, I think I achieved it. Talking and meeting new people. Getting closer to people I already know and stay in touch with my family members for whom without Facebook and this blog, I wouldn’t even talk to. That part is nice.
I also know that blogging families change. We’re into our third family (I think) if you go by “groups.” I hate when people lose touch but we have to face it that they do. I miss people when they leave but soon enough, new people come. It’s sad but happy at the same time.
I’m also very happy that Laura has joined us. It’s a lot easier when you have such fun people to share the writing. Our new Free Chat Thursday that Nikki does is really fun too. I think it’s fun for all of us to talk about everything or nothing. So thanks for heading that up Nikki.
From all of us here, thanks for coming back day after day and talking with us or just reading us. Tell us how you came upon us. How did you find us and why do you keep coming back?
