2012 Review

So, Jetpack makes this nifty little review page for the last year. Mine is here. The rest of this post will probably make more sense if you take a quick look at it.

I’m especially amused by the top search terms people used to find my blog. If you find my blog by searching for ‘Fetlife’ you must be a very patient person, I don’t see my blog until the bottom of the third page of results. It takes dedication to page that far 🙂

But even better are the people who find my blog by searching for ‘forced feminization’. I must have a lot of terribly disappointed one time visitors who think they’re going to find some hot forced fem porn and end up at my rant about ‘forced’ feminization.

Now for some nerding out about statistics. About half way through 2012 my views started climbing, as you can see in the pretty graph I swiped from my Jetpack stats page. It turns out posting regularly really drives up your traffic 🙂 So far I haven’t missed a week, although a few posts have gone out late. Let’s see how long I can keep it up.

That ‘best ever’ view count you see below the monthly views graph is from when Paltego posted about adding a number of links to his blog roll, one of which was my blog. To those 387 views in perspective, my average per day is around 160. When I started this blog back in 2011, my average was down around 50.

daily_viewsLast summer I went through a bit of a dry spell and hardly posted anything, thus the very low view counts. In July (at least, I think it was July) I started posting weekly, and my views started climbing in short order. You would think everyone would just give up on a blogger who doesn’t blog, but when I started posting again you all seemed to come right back.

Why yes, I am the sort of terrible nerd who obsessively checks their blog stats. It’s fascinating to me which posts get all the views and comments, and which ones just don’t seem to invite a reaction. My personal favourite post last year was Just a Nerd, which got nowhere near as many comments as ‘Forced’ Feminization. Of course, one of those was controversial and one of them really wasn’t, which does make the comment counts make sense. People love a good internet argument 🙂

Speaking of comments, the people who comment here are just awesome. There was plenty of disagreement with my post about forced feminization, but everyone kept it civil and I never once had to worry about moderating the discussion.

Finally, I’m terribly proud that I got my first ever internet proposal not long ago on my post Housework, really?. Thanks Tom 🙂

  1. Heh – you got *two* proposals that day! And that reminds me – I’ve got some unfinished biz with Femi…

    You’re in my top 25% of outclicks, for people that still use my blog as a link aggregate.

    And Paltego must get some major traffic, because his blog is one of the top referrers to my own blog.

    Congrats on some really excellent writing, and some great insights. I look forward to them just as much as when you started.

  2. Honestly this is one of the best, and certainly the funniest blogs I ever found. Between you and your followers, Y’all keep me laughing. And I don’t have that many reasons to laugh.

    So thank you for writing. And here’s to another year.
