A look at my 1st year on WordPress

Up until last year, just about this time, I blogged on blogger – in spurts. Robert Jimenez contacted me and suggested that I move to WP. I’d read his blog enough to know to trust him AND so many of the blogs I was already reading were on WP, so I took the plunge. AND now that I think of it, some of the people I enjoy most in biblioblogdom, contacted me for some reason pertaining to/about the blog, but not on the blog.

My top 10 referrers:

  1. New Leaven
  2. The Scroll
  3. alphainventions.com
  4. socks and chocolate
  5. google.com/reader/view
  6. WordPress Dashboard
  7. google.com/reader/view/?tab=my
  8. Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth
  9. Claude Mariottini (now this one surprises me!)
  10. en.wordpress.com/tag/scams

OK, I can’t just stop there because 11 & 12 are:

as of 10:12:28 am, I’d had 23,626 hits. Minuscule to some of you I know, but I’m surprised to have hit it.

Top Posts for the year:

  1. NES Staffing – NES Employment Solutions
  2. About Me
  3. New wine in old wineskins
  4. Apple Staffing
  5. Lego Noah’s Ark
  6. Asking for IM sign-up for job interview?
  7. CCC Recruiting
  8. ieryfbyjcshfbrtyfhhdger .net/fh845hf8f87
  9. The Voca People
  10. The amazing credit score email

Almost all of those had to do with my job hunt last summer. Not a single post that I sweated over, researched extensively, reviewed for a publisher or even wondered if I should hit the publish button because it was so intensely personal made the list. As a matter of fact, the top post about NES Staffing (scam) has 7 times the hits of the next post. I do hope those posts were/are helpful to other job hunters.

I don’t get the spam some of you get. Thank goodness!

Before I blogged, I communicated on bulletin boards. I still visit them sometimes, but they don’t have the same feel. When I blog and get no comments, that’s ok. Everyone in the world knows I was just expressing myself and if someone wants to join in, that’s ok. If they don’t, that’s wonderful too. Not the same on a bb where people are writing waiting for a response.

Waiting to see what the next year brings 😀

  1. Happy New Year, both for the day and for your blog. Looking forward to your posts this upcoming year. Also, I have no regrets switching over to WP, as Blogger just didn’t suit me.
