Ok, in reality, I’ve never been one of those people who’s good at throwing an on-line party complete with invisible cookies and confetti. Which, when I stop and think about it is pretty weird since I do write fiction….
Anywho, today is the two year anniversary of Noveltea. Yes, two years, people! Can you imagine that? Yikes. Of course something as wonderful as this was not to go by unnoticed. Therefore, I did what good little bloggers do and I had a giveaway. With four winners. (Which made it that much better!) And now I know who the winners are, yay! Before I go into that though, I wanted to give y’all some stats from my blog from the last couple of years. I haven’t previously give out much info, because I’m like “Oh my lands, there are so many more blogs that are so much more successful than mine, and maybe people will think I have more views if I don’t say anything about it…” Anyway, I decided to just skip all those thoughts and tell you anyway, because I know for me, I like it when people tell their stats! So here we go:
Published Comments: 2,725 (there might be some spam comments back on older posts I haven’t deleted yet)
Published Posts: 453 (I also have 26 posts scheduled for the next months when I’m traveling. Europe, here I come!)
Pageviews for all time: 69,482
Least Pageviews in a month: March, 2012, 407
Most Pageviews in a month: December, 2013, 7,519
Most Pageviews in a day: I’m not sure, but over 400
Least Pageviews in a day: Probably 0, (For a long time I got around 10 or so a day)
Average Pageviews each day this month: 273
Thank you, all of you. I know some people are like “I just blog to blog and it doesn’t matter if anyone else reads it or not”, but that is not me! I blog for others to read. I seriously feel so thankful that you take the time to read it! Thank you for taking part of your day to share part of my day. Keep up being the amazing blogging friends that you are!
And even though this could be a tad bit embarrassing, I’m going to share my March 6th posts from the last two years. Just remember that everyone grows. 🙂
|First Anniversary (which I celebrated with a writing contest)|
And now for the winners of the giveaway…
Yay, y’all! Congratulations and thank you for celebrating with me!
Since there were four winners and four prizes, I debated how to pick who got what, and decided that I’d let the winners choose. Starting with the first winner, and continuing down from there, please leave your prize of choice in the comments, that would be great! I’m going to be away from home until Sunday, so I’ll not be able to get the prizes out until next week anyway. If, I don’t get replies, I’ll just go down the list and give the first prize to the first person, etc…
What are y’all up to today? I’m in Nashville and can’t hardly wait to share with y’all what we’ve been getting to do. Yesterday was so. much. fun!
