I’m not expecting a plaque at Thermopylae but I was pleasantly surprised to see that my most recent post was my 300th since starting Harper’s Valley. I wish I’d written something more meaningful than; “I have a cold”. Of well, maybe I can manage something more substantial for the 500th.
It took me 523 days to hit the 300 mark; an average of about 4 posts per week. I hope to do better in 2014.
There have been 29,750 site views. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and checked out the doings in the Valley. A special thanks those who commented. I have enjoyed your insights, feedback and the spirit of community.
Two posts are outliers in their popularity. A 2012 post called “What Makes An Image ‘Iconic?'” racked up more than 700 views. A close second place went to a post from earlier this year called “Lady Porn” which summarized my thoughts on the book 50 Shades of Grey. I assume the latter was popular with the search engines because the word “porn” is included in the title. I have no idea why the former was so popular. Maybe I can boost my stats going forward by including some variation of “Iconic Porn” in every title. It seems limiting.
In any case, thanks for reading. I hope the next 300 will be better than the first.
