How’s the blogging going – 2017 version

For each of the four (4!) years I have been blogging, I have posted a fairly geeky post about my progress and numbers.It’s something I look forward to, and it helps me get an idea of what the next year might look like.

Posts and Other Numbers

2014 2015 2016 2017
Posts 158 124 71 64
Sessions 2899 7081 2700 2277
Users 1262 5108 1691 1334
Page Views 9790 13586 7009 7925

Yes, the number of posts has fallen each year. I’m going to think about that some in a future post about goals. But, one a week is still not too shabby.

I find it interesting that the “users” data dropped off so steeply in 2016, which (I hear) is the year that Facebook changed its programming to get people to pay for posts.
