Will we make it this year?

Last years total stats


Number of viewa 29588.

Stats today December 4


Views number 29327.

December isn’t over yet, so we atill have a chance to beat last years number of views.

Not that I’m counting….hehehe. Somehow I do, but blogging is all about having fun, not counting numbers in stats. The number of views depends on how much you post and interact with other bloggers. This year I didn’t find as much time as last year to hang out here with all of you, so that’s what the stays shows. My lack of time to interact.

Not a clever way to blog…

…but a nice way to blog

I blog because of you all, not for the stats. I like when you come visit my blog and I like visiting your blogs and check out how you’re doing all over the world. You teach me new things everyday. Thank you 🙂

So what’s not a clever way to blog?

This


When I make a new post on my blog many of you leave likes that shows up in my wp app notifications. From there I can click my way to your blogs and read your posts, look at your photos in the post and very often I like what I read and see so I leave a like or two on your blog and hopefully also a 🇸🇪 in your country stats 🙂

What’s not clever about that?

I think it’s clever in the meaning it’s nice to pay a visit back when you have visited my blog. But it’s not a smart way to collect stats numbers in visitors and likes. You have already visit my blog and maybe you left a like or two. You won’t be back until my next post.

The stats clever way to blog is to visit other bloggers blogs that still not have visit my blog. I do that too sometimes, but first of all I want to check out the bloggers that leave likes on my posts and after that my blogging time is up.

So I don’t care about collecting increased stats, I care about you and how you are doing on your blogs 🙂

You see, I’m not a smart blogger, or maybe I am. I have fun when I’m here with you, that has to be a smart way to blog!

New milestone – over 2100 followers


Every followers milestone is stunning for me. I started this blog long ago and for the first years I didn’t have more than about ten followers. How come?

I didn’t interact with any blogger. I just posted and posted and posted. Very few likes and even fewer followers showed up in the stats.

But then I started to realize I could visit other blogs. After that I learned it wasn’t scary to leave a comment or a like on blogs. I also realized that I could learn something from other bloggers.

That was the start of the real blog journey to this milestone of reaching over 2100 followers from all over the world.

It’s an never ending universe that I plan to keep traveling through. Thank you all for being here with me 🙂

If you want people to find your blog, please leave the link to your blog in the comments.

Every followers milestone I make a meet and greet session, so grab the chance to tell us who you are and where we can find your blog. If you want us to visit your blog.

Happy blogging!

Slow day in stats

This morning I got zero views again.


A little later I got one view.


Many hours later I got 4 views.


Why am I telling you this?

Because the stats says that I’m not here on wp enough time right now. If you want high  numbers in your stats you have to be here in the blog sphere and interact a lot.

I’m not here for the stats numbers. I’m here for the chance to show you my art and the chance to talk to you and read your blogs.

So when I’m away from here I miss you, so I will always be back. When I’m not here I search for time to be here 🙂

Hope to be back soon

Anna

Another day away from blogging

Beat this stats!


With over 2000 followers of this blog it’s quite an achievement to get zero stats.

I don’t put in any weight in this. I know it happens when I’m not around here on wp.

In next post I will show you what I did instead of being here.

You decide if I made the right choice or not 😉

Anna

This happens sometimes


When I’m not here on wp as much as I want to, this happens. From way over 100 views per day to 2 views a morning after a away-from-wp-period.

That’s totally fair. Blogging is about interacting and if you’re not active or interactive you will receive zero stats or very small stats numbers.

I know how to increase the number of views, I just have to get time to do it.

When I have the time I will do this:

1. Make a post, hopefully one that is interesting to read.

2. Make sure I answer all your comments. Please let me now if you never get an answer, then your comment may have disappeared from my notifications.

3. Visit your blogs, like and also leave comments if I thonk I have something to say.

4. After a day or two I check stats and see that the number of views increased.

Then I start all over again.

When I only do one or two thing on the list I don’t get so much better stats. It’s when I do all four things I get fun stats numbers.

But the number is not what I’m here on wp for. It’s all of you. Meeting you in the comments are the upside of blogging. I learn so much from you. Thank you!

Anna

We are now over…

…2000 followers of this blog


That’s fantasy numbers for me. It’s all your doing. By sharing my posts, comment and like my posts and interact in every other way in the blogginf sphere you made those numbers. I’m not on any other social media, so it’s your sharing and interacting that draw new readers and followers to this blog. I just write the posts and try to interact with you as often as I can. It’s time consuming but very fun and delightful. Thank you all for being here 🙂

You are all stars in the blogging universe 

How did you find my blog and how do we find your blog? 

Leave your link in the comments if you want new readers to your blog 🙂

What a week!

The short ones are normal weeks. The tall ones are Save Trosa nature weeks on the this blog. I hope that means we are many that cares for nature.

Thank you all for being a part of following and sharing the series of Paradise in Earth pictures of Trosa nature that we are trying to save. The politicians and a big land owner wants to destroy nature in the name of money who goes to only one single pocket. The politicians can still rethink this madness and shift to saving nature thoughts instead. That would make them brave and the future citizens would be forever grateful I think.

Stats normally don’t mean a thing (if you ain’t got that swing 🎶🎵) when it comes to blogging. But when it’s about trying to convince politicians of saving Trosa nature the stats can have positive effects in the long run. You more we can show nature is something worth saving, the better. So then stats actually have a point.

How do I find you? 

Have you ever wondered how people find your blog?

I can tell you that most of the visitors on my blog comes from wp reader. You probably use the wordpress app on your digital device or use wordpress on your computer. If you find my blog posts in your reader, the stats says x views comes from wp reader.

If you happen to find my posts through reblogs the stats says from which blog. If someone has shared a link on fb the stats says fb sent visitors over to my blog if they click the link on the fb post.

If you read my blog through your browser the stats only shows views and visitors numbers.

Here’s a normal week stats


Here’s a boom! week where one of my Save Trosa nature friends did several linkbacks from a fb page


So, how do I find your blogs?

Very often I go there by clicking further on the notifications. I know, it’s a lottery for you to get the chance that I click further on your notification. If I see the notification when you liked a post and I have time to read blogs, you might get a visit from me. But if I don’t have time reading blogs after I posted the chance is big that the first numbers of likes go under the visible list before I can click further.

But if I post often you get new chances to be visible in the notifications and new chances for me to click further to get to your blog.


If you leave a comment on my blog or I leave a comment on your blog and you press like button on the comment, you get a bigger visibility in the notifications. Very often you are alone on such notification or share it with one or two others.


If I have enough time (when ever that happens???????) I go to my reader and check out new post from blogs I follow or blogs I don’t have yet discovered.

You maybe find my blog when I press like, leave a comment or two or press like button on comments. I probably show up in your notifications and you womder who on earth is this. Your curiosity takes over and you have to check out the blog I have 😉

Anna


I haven’t figured out why it says follow and follows (in Swedish följ och följer). I have pressed follow on almost every blog I had the chance to visit. I press that again and again on some blogs but it still says I’m not following. That’s weird.

Anna

 

Seriously, is this much? 

I have no idea if this is Boom! stats or not. But it is fun to get milestones. I don’t get milestones very often. When I had five followers and ten views a day I got milestones more often.

Anna

We did it :)

The new view record


That’s thanks to all of you who have visit the blog lately.

It’s also because I got some help from friends that shared some posts on fb.


I normally have zero from fb. I’m not on fb myself so that means very little sharing through that channel.

The number of views also comes from more posting than normal.


I post one or two times a day and some days I don’t post at all, so five new post or reblogs will increase the number of views.

So, the new stat record is not my doing, it’s all our doing by being interactive here in the blogosphere. 

Thank you for being here with me. It’s so nice and fun to speak to you all and reading your blogs 🙂

Anna

Six more views and we have a new record

We’re now at 263 views and the latest record is 268, so I think we’re gonna set a new record today 🙂

This is your doing, not mine alone. It’s a combination of number of posts in one day, the help from friends that link to the blog and my self interacting by visit, liking and comment on your blogs.

So thank you all for setting this record. This is our work together.

We’re not there yet, but by posting this I think we will make it.

It’s just a number though, don’t get hanged up on stats. Blog because it’s fun!

Anna

What’s your favourite milestone?

We’re now way over 1900 followers of this blog. We will probably reach 2000 too very soon.


The followers increase by a hundred each month if I’m interacting well. I can’t just leave the blog or you and believe that curve will continue up. I have to post, answering comments and visit your blogs and leave comment over there for this increase journey to continue.

It’s so fun meeting you all here and at your own blogs. I learn new things everyday. It feels like I’m traveling all over the world. 

What’s your favourite milestone?

I remember when I reached 100 followers. I didn’t think that was possible to reach for me. But it was!

Anna

Five years! How did that happen?

And how did these numbers happen?


And this stats?


But most of all, what amazes me the most, is this map


And all the countries on the list that goes with the map







A small blog in a corner of Sweden have visitors from so many different countries. I think that is amazing and I hope that I have been visiting all the blogs from these countries at least once. Thank you all for visiting my blog. I hope you enjoyed it.

I think blogging is a world peace project that we all can participate in. We talk to each other and we tell about our corners of the world. That means that we learn more about the world through each other and I think we also have a lot of fun while doing that 😉

Happy blogging to you all!

I will continue blogging until I reach every corner of the world in that map and I probably continue after that too!

This is fun and I very much like all our talks in the comments field.

Don’t grow your blog!

At the post Danny’s World: A Common Question
I have a conversation with Danny about the negative effects of growing a blog.

So I decided to do a post about not growing a blog. You can read a hunderty billions of post about how to grow your blog but not a single one of how to NOT grow your blog.

At first that can be tempting. To grow a blog by trying to increase the number of followers in the many numbers of ways to do that.

It is a wow feeling to see more and more people follow your blog. It’s a giggling experience to see how the number of comments increasing and the content of the comments is always exciting to read. When it comes to reading the stats you get even more excited. The big numbers that you never could imaging when you started suddenly show up as real numbers.

But, there’s a big but about growing a blog. The time issue. If you have unlimited time available the blog growing is not a problem. But if you don’t have all the time in the world the growing of a blog can mean some losses.

You won’t have the time to read other blogs as much as you maybe used to do in the beginning. When my blog was smaller I had time to check up on you far more often than today. I kind of miss that.

But, there’s a big but again. I don’t wanna loose any reader of my blog by ignore answer comments not post often and that way make more time for reading blogs.

I’m not to feel sorry for. I just wanna tell you that a small blog can be a brilliant way to blog when you have limited time and want to read other blogs often. So be proud of your small blogs if you have that kind of blog and think twice before you try to grow it fast.

In time your blog will grow naturally or not. It’s all about how you interact with other bloggers. I think the fun part of blogging is the communication with people around the world. It’s not about how many followers or how many views you have in the stats.

It’s about interacting with everyone around the world and exchange of experiences that blogging is all about for me. You give me inspiration and support to continue to making art that matters to other people than only myself. Thank you!

Here’s some drawings during my time as a blogger that readers and followers has inspired.

If you remember a blogger named Melanie from somewhere in U.S., this was the first drawing I made out of a comment from a reader. That was Melanie’s comment. Her well written posts made me do a lot of drawings back when she was around here at wp.

Bjgaulton writes wonderful short poems and one of them inspired this drawing 


The famous OM inspired to a drawing

You all inspired this drawing

Melanie again when she told us about her turtle mode

Jim the “pling” man


Several readers about how they think of my country Sweden.


So you are all inspiration sources 🙂
