The Most Visited Posts on This Blog . . .

Most popular blog posts No re-blog today, because I decided it’s been way too long since I took an accounting of my most popular posts…


I’ll list the Ten Most Popular Posts of the last, nearly, 8 years…

Just before the list, I should explain that, in spite of my often warning folks to not believe what all the Internet-Gurus say, one thing seems to be very true—the About Page of a blog is extremely well-visited :-)

And, these posts were found, predominantly, with a search engine, not social media links…

1. About This Blog – 5,300 visits

2. Writing Challenge ~ Use The 1200 Most Common Words To Write A Story… – 2,191 visits

3. The Book ~ Notes from An Alien – 2,113 visits

State of The Blog Message

Time to account for my nearly obsessive attention to posting five times a week on this blog.

Sure, I’ve got stuff to say and there’s always info worth sharing but, over the short long-haul of this blog’s life (6 months and 22 days), what have the folks who visited found most interesting?

First, in the wonderful Stats that WordPress compiles is the HomePage number of 3,710 views; which, of course can be as brief as an eye-blink :-)

So, subtracting those views from total visits leaves 5,323 views of individual posts.

But, next in the list of top views are the AboutPages for me and my book–246 & 206, respectively. BTW, the consensual wisdom is that AboutPages are usually the most-visited places on a blog; for good reason, eh?

And then come the numbers for the most-visited individual posts–something that informs me about the reaction of my readers to my efforts

Here are the Top Ten:
