Promise, this really is my last post for 2015. But as a bit of a stats geek I couldn’t resist sharing the WordPress.com 2015 annual report for my family history blog. Momentous for me, because 2015 marked its birth!
The report includes useful information such as:
- posting patterns;
- top referring sites; and
- most viewed posts
And on the subject of my most popular posts, I’ve added links to some of my favourites from 2015 which didn’t make the official “hit” list. These are:
- Pro Patria, Pro Rege, Pro Familia: WW1 Centenary Visit – a poignant anniversary visit to Ypres;
- Death by Lightning– my first blog post;
- Batley Rugby League Club’s WW1 History Maker – combining my love of Rugby League, my town, my parish and my interest in WW1; and
- Robert and the Resurrectionists, a tale of Yorkshire body snatchers Part 1 and Part 2 – a gruesome family tale
As ever I’d welcome any feedback about which of my posts you particularly enjoyed in 2015; and what you would like to see more of in 2016.
So thank you for reading. And I hope to share more posts in 2016.
Here’s an excerpt from the report:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,900 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 48 trips to carry that many people.
