Happy Blogiversary to me

Two posts on one day! I know! But I could hardly let this pass without comment…

These four years saw 432 posts published on if all else fails… (including this one) and 2,722 total comments, of which I wrote 451.

The site has had 38,505 views to date coming from 99 different countries.

I got China. No one gets views from China, and I’ve had 7!

The best day was 20 September 2015 with 237 views. The most viewed post is When logic takes a leave of absence with a whopping 7,853 all time views – that post was the top search result in Google for over a week for searches on a certain math puzzle. The second most popular post is On Inappropriate Adjectives (or why you shouldn’t call babies “sexy”) with a paltry 1,546 views. (I feel even stronger about the topic addressed in that post now that I have my own little girl!)

The most commented post was On the day job with 46 total comments.

As of today if all else fails… has 539 followers and the Facebook page has 45.

And I’ve answered over 8,750 threads on the WordPress.com support forums (5,000 of those before I started getting paid to do it).

Looking back on it like this I realise it’s been a great 4 years blogging on WordPress.com. I’ve met some great people and made quite a few friends around the world. To all of you, thanks for joining me in this journey and making it worthwhile with your comments, your post likes, your encouragement when I posted about going through tough spots, and your sharing in my joy when I celebrated the good things in my life.

May the next four be even better!

  1. Well done! I took a break of a couple of years from this site, but first came to WordPress.com seven years ago. And my attitude to it has changed since I began. The changes used to annoy the hell out of me, now I just take ’em in my stride. 🙂
    You’ve far more followers than I have. I prefer to have a smaller number as it’s a personal blog.

      1. It is very hard to make time. My pieces usually take a full day to think out, write, edit and post. I work full time and have a family so that time is hard to come by. But I am so glad that I’m still here — and to find you are too.
