So this is my 500th post. After almost 4 years, that comes to just 125 posts per year, 10 posts per month, 2 posts per week. Oy, numbers. Boring stuff. Moving on...
What have I learned, dear readers, after blogging on and off for the past 4 years? Well, I've made a list.
- Readers like them lists. Posts with lists get a lot of traffic. Should I number my paragraphs then?
- More comments don't mean there aren't any readers. In fact, the most popular post, which got 2,355 page views, just has 2 comments.
- Include photos of handsome men in a post and, presto, you get huge traffic.
- Blog gets the fewest number of readers on Saturdays and Sundays; it gets the most on Mondays. I guess people still have a weekend hangover and would just like to surf the net mindlessly on Mondays.
- It feels weird to make "serious" posts. Talk about awkward.
- Adverbs are good. But I realized I use them carelessly and frequently in my posts. Must closely read and carefully proofread. Ack! I did it again!
- Popular posts get a lot of spam. Unfortunately, the only spam that I like is the one that comes in a can. And fried to a crisp. Mmmmm...
- I've never changed my blog banner. Facelifts, even virtual ones, scare me.
- The older the blog gets, the bigger the text font becomes. Blame my eyesight.
- This blog has become me. One time, I was in a bookstore and one person approached me and asked, "You're KyusiReader, aren't you?" I don't know if that's a good thing or not.
