Four Years

WordPress sent me a notification this morning that I registered this blog on WordPress.com four years ago today. It took me four days to publish my first post.

Since I was just returning from a two-year blogging hiatus after I abruptly ended my previous blog, I wasn’t sure how frequently I would post to my new blog or even how long I would keep it going. Well, I know now that I’ve kept it going four four years!

And over that four years (if you can trust the stats that WordPress compiles), my blog has had:

  • 6,257 posts published
  • 1,446.8 words in those posts
  • 544k views
  • 153k visitors
  • 4,481 followers
  • 101.6k comments
  • 164.5k likes

Not too shabby, huh?

So thanks to all of your who have visited my blog, who have chosen to follow my blog, who have liked my posts and commented on them, and for reading my nearly one-and-a-half million words. You have made my four years of blogging here worthwhile.

    Congratulations. I hope things keep going well for you. We all need your voice, or, at least I need it.

    I think I peaked about three years ago. To be fair, I’m not trying nearly as hard as I did and don’t plan on trying harder. I stopped caring much about stats after I hit a million. Now it’s just “extras.”

      Maybe in another four years I’ll hit a million. My new motto: A million or bust (or death?).

        My pleasure! A joyful journey, mostly! BTW, the block editor is not proving to be the pain I thought it would be. Even on my phone, I’m managing well! Touch wood.

    I decided, following the A2Z, to switch up from Blogger to WordPress – just in the middle of the process – any tips…?

      Welcome to WordPress. My tip is that you should make it a priority to interact with the blogging community here. You might want to reach out to another blogger who moved from Blogger to WordPress about a year or so ago. His name is Pete and he blogs at https://mrbump.uk. I’m sure he’d be happy to share his experience and offer some tips.

        Thanks for that – interacting is always the lesson for promotion but surely the goal itself…
