“The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog” (their words not mine). I’m not sure they’ll be overly interesting to anyone but me, but here they are anyway just in case.
In short, visits were up almost 400%. This was mainly due to one very popular post (on game design tips) and the fact I posted twice as much content, managing an average of more than one post per week.
A few of my 2012 posts were still on the ‘most popular’ list, so I should see about continuing to update the popular older content – especially my board gaming podcasts list. And I really need to finish that beginners’ guide…
But the real reason the numbers have gone up is, of course, because you fine people have read it – and for that I am eternally grateful. It makes it all worthwhile and I hope you’ve found it useful/entertaining/occasionally coherent. Happy New Year!
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 22,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 8 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
Yours is the only board game blog I subscribe to and read regularly (ie, every post). I find the articles keep me interested, which is something most articles don’t accomplish. Looking forward to 2015.
