Stats and The Story So Far…


So one of the things you have worked out about me so far is that I am obsessed with the stats page concerning my blog.

On my bad days it’s a case of doom and gloom seeing daily views fluctuating and all the good days it’s all about WOW look how people have read my humble musings! Of course the reality is that blogging takes a long time to build an audience and I am finally getting to grips with the patience needed and as today is, so far, a good day I wanted to share some stats with you because I am so proud of what I have achieved thus far.

Here are my all time stats as of 30th July 2012

  • 4320 all time views
  • 213 views on my busiest day
  • 125 average daily views
  • 43 different countries have read my blog
  • 85 followers — wowee! I am so pleased with this number!
  • 450 total likes 🙂
  • 699 comments on my blog
  • 2 turtle doves
  • 1 partridge in a pear tree

Ok I may have thrown the last 2 in to check you was still reading but the most important stat so far is…

  1. One happier moose!


Here is a top 10 of the most visited posts

Top 10 most visited…


  1. Home Page
  2. The Man Behind the Moose
  3. Depression and Me
  4. Moose Tracks
  5. Swimming Against the Tide
  6. How Do You Say Sorry When it’s Too Late
  7. Why I Blog and How Often
  8. Dear Depression…
  9. My Stalker
  10. Seemed Like a Good Idea At The Time


There are 70 posts so you need to do some catching up if you missed any (HINT HINT)

When I started writing I had no idea what to expect from it but these stats are so uplifting for me. The best thing about doing this is how much better it has made me feel, like I am achieving something. There are some hidden gems in my blogs that I am surprised did not make the top 10 in terms of viewers but I am proud of how much my writing has given people something to read because THEY want to read what I have to say.

Hopefully I am helping people as well because that would just be the icing on the cake if it was the case!

So there you have it, turning my stats obsession into a positive post who would have thought it!

  1. Haha. You’re starting a trend- I started glancing more thoroughly at our stats page now. Our blog is still pretty new and we do so little networking that the low stats are not surprising, but it’s still fun to see 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!


  2. It always amazes me how the posts I expect to be the most popular sem to draw the smallest numbers. I still haven’t worked out the message in that for me but I’m sure it’s blindly obvious and I will work it out eventually. The other thing I though of is that I was totally obsessed by my stats page too but I’m starting to realise it isn’t as important as I thought it was. I still check it but it’s not such an urgent rush to look and tell myself what that means about me. I don’t know but maybe it will die off a bit for you too, but I’d say you’re doing pretty well so you should be encouraged. 🙂


  3. A lot of us are obsessed with our stats and the number of followers.. I check mine with frequent fervour LOL I call it the ratings… like some NBC executive looking at the numbers for last night’s episode of Whatever LOL

    You’ve done great so far… you’re getting more hits than me LOL I’ve been writing mine since mid December of last year but it didn’t really get noticed until late February. I’ve just had my busiest month and although I’ve got 150 WordPress followers, I only average about 80 visits a day… so you’ve done awesome!

    Keep it up!
