If I manage to sneak this one through before the next scheduled daily calendar post pops up, then this will be the 100th post on this blog.
That really needs to activate some kind of……
Actually, how good would that be for budding writers and bloggers? If your blog also linked to a game with achievements being unlocked as you continued writing.
Achievements could include things like:
– Save a post in Draft
– Review your Draft post the following day
– Get a friend/peer to review a post before publishing?
– Join a forum for bloggers or journalists or fiction writers or biographers or technical writers… etc
That is, to encourage writers to develop their skill sets by rewarding them with extra widgets or themes or storage space when they unlock their achievements!
(This idea for sale – cheap!)
That had absolutely no relation with what I was going to post about when I sat down to write this blog. In a well developed trope, I was going to look back at what the blog has achieved in its first 12 months seeing that we not only hit our 100th post, but over the last weekend, I also passed my first anniversary as a blogger. The world isn’t on fire, but the natural growth of the blog is enough that I no longer wonder if I am the only one who will ever see this.
To date, there have been 13,803 visitors to this site. The highest ever traffic for a day being 123 views.
The top countries represented by my visitors is interesting. Most of my visitors (more than 90%) are from the United States.
The next countries in descending order of count of visitors are: Australia, Philippines, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Indonesia, India, Malaysia, European Union, Singapore, Netherlands and South Africa.
It is also a bit funny when you see obscure countries being represented. Just what exactly about my blog would draw a visitor from Yemen, Tunisia, St Lucia, Azerbaijan, Marshall Islands, or the Northern Mariana Islands?
So what does everyone come to visit?
After those, my epic brain dump idea for a MMORPG, Lorea has had the next most visits.
Having said that, the daily calendar posts are getting up to 40 views per day and that is growing quickly.
