How to get a boom milestone

Stats are fun sometimes. 

Stay away from blogging couple days and your stats will drop for sure.

Then return to blogging and create some posts and then visit some of your friends blogs to read, leave likes and comments.

What happens?

A wow milestone until you check the stats


A fairly normal blog day in stats.

But it’s fun getting boom milestones anyway even if it’s kind of fake.

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!

Anna

Will I make it?

Last years stats


Stats this year so far


The views number I think I will hit a new record this year, but the likes and the comments, nah that will be lower numbers this year.

It’s interesting to compare two years stats. Last year I reposted many posts and that collected many likes, but it got messy in the timeline somehow so I don’t repost as often as I did then. Result, less likes on every post, but a more clean timelime on the blog.

The comments were obviously a lot more last year, but I think we talk as much as we did last year. Maybe we have talked on your blogs instead of mine this year?

The visitor numbers is hogher this year. I dinner know if that means that new people have found my blog or what that number says. I can only guess.

Here’s some other interesting stats stuff


Were do you find my blog? Mostly from wp reader, search engines and then way behind fb and other sources.


Here’s also interesting info. From my blog you go to other blogs and sites. Jim at Random writing on the bathroom wall, itrosa.se (local news), John at fotobloggarna.se and Thomas at aspiblog is the top sites you go to from here.


And then my favorite section in stats. The flag stats. You visit my blog from all over the world. Here’s the top list for this year.

I hope I leave my Swedish flag 🇸🇪 in your stats now and then.

What is your favorite section in the stats?

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

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.

Anna

It’s only a number

and nothing more, but still, I think it’s unbelievable 


1798 followers! 

I’m not on any other social media, I’m only here on wp with all of you. 

I don’t think of what to write to get extra views, followers or likes.

I don’t randomly press like on thousands of blogs to get attention to my blog.

What do I do to get this number of followers?

I’m just trying to be nice to everybody and write posts about my art, what I read on other blogs, what I experience in nature and other things that pops up in my mind.

Okay, I also try to visit your blogs as often as I can, I try to leave comments when I think I have  something to say and I try to leave likes when I like your posts. I wish I had more time to visit all amazing blogs. You all show me the world. Thank you!

It’s so lovely to talk to you. When I’m not around much I miss our talks, so I will always return even if I’m away for a while.

I don’t get milestones that often anymore. That is okay, but I wish for one milestone more. The one who says “congratulations, you have now visited every blog that’s following your blog”. I wonder if I ever get that milestone.

When I started my blog I didn’t think I could get even hundred followers, or ten for that matter. But I didn’t even know the essens of blogging back then. When I learned that blogging is about interacting with other bloggers, then my stats started to grow. Nowadays the followers increase with about 100 per month. When I don’t interact that much, the stats slows down and when I get back the stats moves up again.

I don’t blog for stats. I blog for you. I want to hear from you, get you in my notifications so I can find a quick way to your blog. By liking my posts and comments you show up in the notifications in the wp app and then I see you and that reminds me of paying your blog a visit or two 😉

So my stats is actually your stats. It’s not me who increase the followers, likes, views and number of comments. It is you!

So thank you all for being here and always be so friendly. I like that, so I will be here whenever I have time for it.

Happy blogging!

WP weirdness

Have you noticed that my post Matilda Day appears in double versions? I have likes and comments on both so I can’t erase one of them. Well I let them stay on the blog both of them. But it bugs me a bit. wP tricked me.

When I made the post I got an error message and I therefore pressed publish again. Now I realize that I should have looked before pressing publish again. But I believed that WP told me the truth about the post error.

Well, well, now you know why there’s two of the same post.

Anna

Stats not the only thing that falls

Shoveling snow this evening. Sorry for not being here with you instead.

I wasn’t around much here yesterday either.

The stats clearly show what you think of my absence 😉


I’m not a stats addict, but I miss you all when I don’t have time to be here.

I hope you all are okay.

If you want to tell me and the others what you’re up to on your blog, please tell us in the comments and leave a link if you want.

Anna

Not that I’m counting, but…

…but we’re almost there


One more to go to 1600 followers 😉

Anna

Funny milestone

I think this is a funny milestone. Number of posts so far on my blog equals number of followers of the blog!

The prize day December 10

Today Sweden news is mostly about the Nobel Prize. But here on wp I say you are all worth a prize for your blogging efforts. We all learn about each other, our different countries, our different ways to live. We support each other and expand our contact net by meet & greets, linkbacks and reblogs. Everyone is welcome in the communities as long as we are nice to each other. Isn’t that how the real world should work too?

I say we prove that world peace is possible as long as we have open minds and treat each other with equal respect. So we are all worth a prize for our peacefulness here on wp 😉


Anna

What a difference a day or two make

Heres how my morning stats often look like.



This often happens when I don’t have time for interacting as much as I want.

This morning the stats looked like this. And I have never seen such numbers so early in the morning before.


So, if you have low or high numbers in your stat, never mind that. They akways change over time and have very much to do with how much you interact in your blogging. At least that’s my experience of stats movements.

But I’m not a stats addict, noooooway!

Hey! where’s Thumbup?

Have any one of you heard from Thumbup?

For the few of you who don’t have seen Thumbups gif comments, she’s a gif queen here at wp. When she’s not around the wp comment fields gets less funny. I do appreciate all your comments, but Thumbup always come up with funny, cute or smart gif comments that makes me smile. Your comments makes me smile too, but if you know Thumbups way of talking here at wp, you know what I mean.

If you haven’t seen Thumbups blog you can check it out here:

Made a Thumbup picture last year when she liked Jims castle tour.


Here you can see the posts that made me do this drawing.

I hope Thumbup’s coming back soon 🙂
