I can’t believe it is the beginning of July. Why when we get older, does it seem like the years go faster and faster?
In June my Stats were up and down from week to week. However, I ended up with a pretty good total for the month. 2,705 views from 930 visitors. 1,370 likes with 265 comments.
Sometime throughout the month I hit both my 500th post and reached my 500th WordPress follower!
The coolest thing to me is that Making Time For Me was visited by 45 different countries in June! WOW, that is simply amazing.
For those of you who don’t know, I started my blog in October 2014. I didn’t start Blogging with Purpose until January 2016. When I created my My New Blog Format. That is when I truly started intentionally blogging, as well as intentionally reading. I realized that following other bloggers, commenting and sharing was every bit as important as publishing content of my own.
I started 2016 with 19 followers and I had only published a total of 100 posts. Now 6 months later, I am at 503 WordPress followers.
I have published at least one post every day since January 1st. For 2016 so far I am at 17,113 views from 5,666 visitors. 8,876 likes with 2,095 comments. With a total of 75 different countries who have stopped by for a visit.
The most popular posts of the year have been Calling all Teenage Bloggers and Introduce Yourself. I had a teenager back in January ask me to guest post on her site and that is when it hit me, TEENAGERS. Give them a spotlight, a weekly voice on my blog. I love this feature and hope that I continue to get people who are interested in writing for it. Introduce yourself is just a forum to share who you are and where you are blogging from, in hopes to be able to address each other by name.
I hope that all of you have had as good of a year so far on your blog as I have had on mine! Most important, I hope that you are still having fun writing.
