For the past week my blog stats have been slumping. I wondered if maybe I just wasn’t writing anything worth reading, but new post views are about normal and I have written a few things worth reading.
My Gift Exchange III post had had a little higher than normal views, but maybe it is because of this cute picture of me holding triplets.
My Walls of Jericho post is still cranking out daily views and is approaching a major milestone.
Posts like Santa, Coca-Cola and National Geographic get lost in the holiday traffic. However, a post like this may show up next November as people start searching for holiday ideas.
I did go back and look at blog stats for previous years. There have been mid-December stat slumps for the past four years.
Many people are busy shopping, whether it be on-line or in stores, watching bowl games, getting ready for the holidays, traveling, etc.. They are simply not searching for the things that I normally share in my blog.
I just have to be patient. The stats will pick up again after Christmas when people are trying out their new devices 🙂
p.s. I am finally just about over what ailed me earlier this week. Losing almost nine pounds in two days was not fun. See: Sick Day
