Last year I said I wanted to try to hit a 1000 page views in a single day and get 100k accumulated page views.
Well, based on what WordPress is telling me, I fell wayyyyyy short of the 1000 views per day target.
607 views. The highest number in 2014 was 459 views. So that’s not much of an improvement. On the bright side, I got 88k views from 2015 alone. It is comforting to know that the number of views I have for 2015 is the equivalent of 4 days worth of visitors to one of the most famous museums in the world.
And thanks to this 88k views, my accumulated total page views now stands at:
Yay! At least one target was met. Nice work!
Also, another comforting stat to take note of: although I could not hit the 1000 views in a single day target, I have 10 blog posts that broke the 1000 barrier in terms of total views.
Although I was discomforted about as quickly as I was comforted. 9 out of 10 of them are food, food, food, food posts. And the one that wasn’t about food was about a temple that should be famous but nobody writes about.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll repeat: I’m not a foodie blog! So… seeing this stat… Yikes!
Anyway, I’m not setting any new targets for the blog to achieve in 2016. I’m not visiting a lot of new blogs or promoting my blog in a lot of places anymore nowadays, so I don’t expect the numbers to grow exponentially anymore.
Maybe I’ll just look forward to reaching 200k page views by the end of 2016…
