Wow, has it really been three years since I made my very first blog post?  Time sure has flown!  Last year on my 2nd blogiversary, I shared some statistics along with my goals for the upcoming year.  I thought it would be fun [cuz I'm a total dork and love this sort of thing!] to look back at how far my blog has come over the past year, in comparison to the last two!

*3rd Blogiversary – July 5, 2011:  Over the past year I blogged 304 times or 83% of the year!

*2nd Blogiversary – July 5, 2010: I blogged 276 times (76% of the year)!  [read about it HERE]

2010 Benchmarking vs 2011 Benchmarking

  • Average Visits/day: 37 vs. 23 visits/day
  • Pages visted/visit  (once they view my blog,how many separate parts of my blog do they visit on that visit): 1.77 vs. 1.76 Pages visited/visits
  • Bounce Rate (bounce rate shows how many people clicked around to different spots on my blog…the lower the % means people are touring my blog and reading different spots.  Goal for blogs is 75% or less.) 73.47% vs. 66.85% 
  • Average Time Spent on My Blog: 2:57 vs. 2:13
  • New Visitors: 59% vs. 60%
    The Next Year: I have big plans for the next year,well actually couple of months! I feel that I have mastered blogger and want to try something new. I’m gonna set-up my blog on WordPress,and go for a more “professional” look! I’ve learned a lot about it,and am excited! 

2010 Goal: Move from Blogger to WordpressDone!  My official move was September 10, 2010!   You can read my Going Live in 3, 2, 1 …. post here!

*1st Blogiversary- July 5, 2009:  I blogged 233 times (or 64% of the year)!   [read about it HERE]

Last year I had big goals for 2010 to move to WordPress, but this year I’m not feeling overly ambitious!  I want to practice and improve my HTML and CSS technical skills that are needed behind the scenes of my blog – but other than that nothing major!  My biggest goal is to finish school in three quarters!  I think I can, I think I can, I think I can …

Here’s to another year!!
