My WordPress Statistics
In one week’s time, I shall be celebrating my seventh anniversary of writing blogs on this platform. I knew the small audience of readers would grow over time, but I wasn’t expecting the huge doubling of numbers in 2020. So, the pandemic did allow people more time to read.
My modest start in 2014 may have been due to my focus on poetry in those first posts. I continued on that vein in 2015. Then in 2016, I changed to writing “The Star of Bethlehem” manuscript here, which had no discernible effect on who was visiting my site, in the short term.
But in 2017, the number of views exceeded 10,000 with almost 6,500 visitors, and stayed at that plateau throughout 2018 and 2019. Then in 2020, when I started writing about various conspiracy theories and bringing karmic astrology into the mix, the number of views exceeded 25,000 with over 17,600 visitors.
I’m not sure if the present year will be that high again, but the month-on-month totals are quite promising. I cannot take any real credit, since the pandemic is ongoing, with no end in sight. People are looking for answers, and the mainstream media aren’t doing their job properly.
So, thank you, readers. You make getting up everyday to write something new a joy for me.
