A few months ago Blogger added a feature where I can analyze the stats of my blog. I find it interesting and enjoy looking at it. I mean if a writer writes and no one reads it, did they really write it? I'm greatly encouraged when I know someone has read it and had some sort of reaction to it. Love it!
I am not yet a prolific blogger, by any means. And yet, I find it interesting that two of the top five posts -- every week -- were written months ago. Fascinating to me, at least and probably the most interesting to me, too.
Just in case you would like to know, here are the
Top 5 Posts for the Month of February for Kath Ink:
1) Enough? posted on February 25, 2010
2) Carole Joy Seid Inspires Again posted on August 19, 2010
3) A Different Kind of Help posted on February 8, 2010
4) In the Middle of a Five Mile Run posted on January 29, 2010
5) A Transformation Has Taken Place posted on December 3, 2010
I wrote the Carole Joy Seid post in August after attending her homeschool conference. That post continues to be a top post for me time and time again. My blog comes up when someone does a search on her name.
Originally I didn't write much about homeschooling. But since that seems to be a topic that drives some to look at my blog occasionally, I have plans to write some more posts about it as I go. It makes sense since I spend much of my time either educating, or reading about education, or tutoring for a part-time job.
Imagine that? I was on the right track when I first declared an Elementary Education major in college. I changed my course many times and walked out with a degree but not in education. I really do love to teach. It doesn't matter too much the topic -- Bible studies, Sunday school, ancient history, or even the pythagorean theorem. So between realizing that it is of interest to others and myself...I guess I''ll write some more about it!
How about you? Do you analyze statistics for your blog? Has it changed the direction of your blog any?
