2016 Blog Stats

Around this time of the year, I like to take a look at how my blog did. Where the most traffic came from, where the most traffic came from, the most popular posts, that sort of thing. I hope you'll find it as interesting as I do; maybe you'll also discover a post you never knew I wrote, which you'll find exceedingly useful - who knows?

Top Countries

During the course of 2016, the countries that gave me the most views were:
  1. United States
  2. South Africa
  3. United Kingdom
  4. Brazil
  5. Germany
I don't think the top four are any surprise. Although it's a pity that the United States beat out South Africa, for views to a South African blog. Come on, my home country. Give me some views!

Brazil and Germany are interesting, though. I'm pleasantly surprised, but I wonder what the Brazilians and Germans see in my blog. If you're reading this post from one of those countries, why not pop me a comment and let me know?

Top Searches

Two searches completely dominated hits to my website this year. Click the links to see the Google Search Results for those respective terms.
No surprises there - those are both flash fiction stories I wrote. Obviously, people love those stories so much, they're actually searching for them!

Top Posts

It's great to see some of my old posts still getting views, especially one from 2014! That one, The Witch of Wellington, is probably what people view after searching for "witch of wellington" (duh!).

As you can see, my humble little blog is still rather small, but I'm hoping that posts like this one will help bring it into the limelight, as readers like you find it and get excited about the things I share.

Merry Christmas!

Oh, and by the way, there's less than a week to go before Christmas. I truly, sincerely, hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful, blessed festive season, and that you stay safe out there.

As per usual, I will be in church from 23:00 on Christmas Eve, and we'll be out of bed really early on Christmas Day to open presents. What's your Christmas tradition?

Anyway, try to remember the reason for the reason, and if you're drinking, please don't drive.. Your life isn't the only one you put in your hands, any time you get behind the wheel.
