For each of the seven 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
I switched to a new analytics program half way through the year. What I didn’t know is that it won’t let me look at more than a month ago unless I pay, which I don’t want to. Time to go shopping again. I’m not shocked that I didn’t write as much as in years past. More than last year, less than 2018. I think I’ll make 52 posts for the year an official goal.
Adding a metric (or two)
I am going to add a metric. I currently have 434 addresses on my newsletter e-mailing list. This will become an important metric when I publish my 2021 goals.
I sold six paintings this year.
Most popular posts (by month)
While I lost some data, I was still able to see (in general) what the more popular posts were.
- January: meraki
- February: The best (and the worst)
- March: Interesting times
- April: Just try it, you’ll like it
- May: Scale. Small.
- June: Four paintings and an attack
- July: Finishing Process
- August: The glass is.
- September: Timely Tara Tells Tantalizing Tales
- October: The gift of a failed painting
- November: The days just slide by
- December: Malaise, angst & protest (but it’s not that bad)
I am little surprised I didn’t write more, but with the pandemic and assorted issues (including moving and getting a pair of kittens), maybe it’s time to give myself a break.
