I usually promote a post from other blogs on Sundays; but, today, I’ll promote the most visited posts and pages on this blog since its beginning in January of 2011

There have been over 105,000 visits

35,035 visits were to the main page—showing whatever posts happened to be current.

5,228 visits were to the About Page, which is usually a well-viewed feature on most any blog.

These were the most visited of 1,787 posts and 9 pages…

So, why did I say the 406 folks who went to What About All The Authors Whose Books Don’t Sell Very Many Copies? were lucky?

Because, I consider that post the most important thing I’ve written in the last six years of blogging.

“About” Pages on a blog are the most visited. Makes sense for folks to want to know who’s behind the words, eh?

Then come the most visited posts–what drew attention, what sparked interest, what the blogger usually wants to do more of :-)

Since January 1st, this blog has had 10,152 visits. Of those, 4,034 hit the Home Page (meaning they saw the most recent post–so, the numbers below are actually not those pages “most visited” but the ones “most-willfully” visited), 270 visited My About Page, and 227 saw my book’s About Page
