It’s that time of the month again. My May blog overview. If you haven’t read my April overview you can read that here. I’m all about the stats now, turns out I can use them as a helpful tool rather than an obsessive one, that or my mentality has changed around them.
This month I decided to move over to WordPress, and it’s one of my better decisions when it comes to my blog. It’s so much easier to work with and my overall engagement has gone up. I find it so much easier to connect with people on this platform too, so definitely seeing the benefits.
But let’s get into what you’re really here for. How well did the blog do this month.
Blog stats: (via google analytics) The first week is slightly longer due to start of the month and other weeks starting on Sunday
Week 1: (1/5-9/5) 76 views (+50 on last month)
Week 2: (10/5-16/5) 146 views (+122 on last month)
Week 3: (17/5-23/5) 137 views (+118 on last month)
Week 4: (24/5-31/5) 145 views (+91 on last month)
That’s a total of 504 views, +371 on last month which I’m really happy with. I’m happy with any improvement but my second week had more views than last month combined which has astounded me.
ps still not earning an income from blogging.
Other stats you might like are:
Twitter: 396 followers (+284)
Instagram: 90 followers (+43)
Pinterest: 15 followers (+10)
Blog: 35 followers (+35)
And my 3 top posts this month are:
Moving to WordPress || 38 views
Finding balance || 37 views
What coming out as trans taught me || 37 views
And there we have it. My blog stats for the month of May. I’m so happy to see the improvement and I do think a lot of it is down to moving to wordpress. Thanks to everyone for their support. Gonna try and smash June now.
Take care, stay safe.
