And They Said It Wouldn't Last...

Well, this blog is officially one year old....yesterday :) Just like me to miss it. It seems like I've been working on this blog most of my life. Maybe I'm spending too much time on it, but it never feels like enough, it never feels complete. Maybe that is just the nature of this type of blog.

So here are some stats for you. Let me say I never thought for a minute this blog would come anywhere close to these numbers.

There have been a total of 146 posts, six are still in "draft" stage.
There have been 158 comments posted.
My profile has been viewed 632 times.

These aren't totally accurate because I didn't put a counter on here until the middle of August.

There have been 2819 visits.
Average per day 15
Average length 2:50
There have been 4408 page views.
Average per day 24
Average per visit 1.6

My readers came from:

US 9.7%
Ireland 8.1%
Unknown 8.1%
United Kingdom 4.0%
Canada 2.0%
Australia 1.0%
France 1.0%
Germany 1.0%
Switzerland 1.0%
Macedonia 1.0%
India 1.0%
Jamaica 1.0%

I know I've had readers from Thailand, Japan, the Netherlands, Brazil, Columbia, Peru, Russia and Iceland but I guess there weren't enough to register.

Even though it may not seem like much to most of you out there that have regular visitors and commentors, it means a great deal to me that people think enough of my little place in the blogosphere to come here at all, much less re-visit.

I would just like to take this time to thank each and everyone of you for your time. I am very grateful and hope that I have been of some relative service to you with your searches. As always, have a great day and happy searching!


  1. Well done! some pretty impressive figures there!

  2. thanks, cb! sometimes you get really discouraged just looking at the stats from day to day, but when you take the time to look at the bigger picture it looks a bit better. it really surprised me the number of comments that i had actually gotten. most times i don't think anyone is reading what i write because i don't think i ever get comments. i guess i just need to quit measuring myself by what i see on other blogs :)

  3. I don't even look at stats for my blog because if I did I probably would never write again. LOL

  4. Keep up the good work. You have done everyone in the social work community a huge service with your blog. Thanks for dedicating the time to create such a helpful resource!
