October 2, 2013 Giveaways 12



STATS!  This is the one I always like to read when I visit other blogs one year anniversary.  I love to see people’s stats.  My stats – I have no idea how they happened, really. I’m sorta stunned.  One thing to take into consideration is that the Blogger Stats and the WP stats are not the same. I’m not sure what Blogger counts as a page visit, but it’s different than Jet-pack with WP (that’s the plug-in I’m using because I can never remember my Google analytics account shit and they always end up resetting my password thinking I’m a hacker)
blogger stats
OK – so my stats are skewed because I moved to WP and that leaves me with no page view counts for my posts, so I’m going by comments, which is probably not real accurate.
So here we go:
Pageviews from October 1, 2012 to October 1, 2013
Blogger: 129,582
WP: 11,567 (since August 15, 2013)
Total: 141,149
Comments: 3533

GFC: 1200+
Twitter  – My author account and blog accounts are the same – but I started with ZERO followers last August or so, because Heather from Supagurl Tours was my very first follower!  She was organizing my Clutch tour and I was not gonna make a Twitter, I had a pretty big account with my other non-fiction stuff, and I hated it. But everyone was asking for a Twitter handle and so I made one. Now I have 4390 followers.
Facebook: For some reason this blog FB page is really not that popular but I have 2139 as of right now. My author account, which I started at the same time, or maybe even later because I had a page just for my Junco books at first, that one is super popular and gets a lot of traffic. But this NAA one really doesn’t.
Blogluvin: 1222 – I started switching over to Blogluvin on March 28, 2013 because I knew I was going to switch to WP soon.
Goodreads doesn’t really count, I mean, my friends and followers see all my blog posts in their feeds if they have their accounts set that way, but most of that stuff is from author promo.
RSS – I have about 500 total email subscribers, this is the old feed and the new feed combined.



Total: 116 See them all here.
