For each of the six 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 2018 2019

Not surprisingly, my post numbers were down. There were long stretches of time when I didn’t write. Additionally, over the summer I redid the website, which took all of my time.

However, I am shocked by the uptick in users and page views. The new website is nice, but I’m not sure what else could be doing that. This year analytics reports I had an lot of “organic search” results, but also a lot of “bounces.” Oh, well.

Data Trends

As you can see, unlike last year, the trend is going up.

For a tough year, not too bad!
