Made it! Another June, another #blogjune challenge completed. Thanks to everyone who read and commented on my posts, I hope you got something out of them. I must admit I didn’t feel as inspired or prepared this year as I did last year. I felt that a lot of this year’s posts didn’t have much thought or preparation behind them, and I was finding it hard to come up with anything semi-interesting to write about. Anyway, it’s done now, so I thought I’d crunch the numbers about my posts for this year and compare some of them to last year’s.
My most-viewed post for this year’s #blogjune was An interesting use of RFID, maybe because it may have been relevant to both geocachers and librarians. As far as the days of the week go, weekends saw the fewest visitors, but I couldn’t really see any consistent pattern from week-to-week. The visitors to the blog came from all round the world, with the top five countries being Australia, United States, Germany, New Zealand, and United Kingdom. These are pretty much the same as last year’s top five. Compared to June last year I had about the same number of unique visitors to my blog, but the number of visits, hits and pages viewed was down. Twitter was again the source of the majority of the referrals to the blog, and Firefox was the most commonly browser (followed by Chrome, then Internet Explorer). Interestingly, as far as browsers go, the number of visitors using either the iPhone or Android browser doubled from last year (2.0%) to this year (3.9%).
I also did a quick comparison to see how my stats stacked up to those for Blogjoon, my 5 ½ year old son’s blog. It looks like people found his posts more interesting than mine, as he got about 30% more page views than I did over the month. He also got more comments than me, too.
So, that’s it for #blogjune for this year. I will keep posting to the blog throughout the year, but not every day. Thanks for reading, and I’ll probably be back for #blogjune next year.
