A Review of My Blogging Experience So Far

I’ve been posting regularly for months now, and I haven’t really been looking at my page’s stats. (Lies, I check my stats every time I log on.) There’s a bar graph of my views per day that begs to be looked at thoroughly on my site’s home page.

Anywaysies, today, I thought I’d share what I noticed during a close examination of my posts’ stats. (Bear in mind that a lot of these observations are largely assumptions on my part based on noticeable patterns. I do not take into account other variables like the time of day I post or who shares a post and where.)

So let’s see what works and what flops…


  • Posts with engaging and relatable titles. “Dungeons & Dragons & Dorks (Oh My),” while bordering on marginally clever, did not garner as many views as “Bring It On, Beaches.” Bottom Line: More people know of beaches than of good ole D&D.
  • Anything clearly having to do with my bird. (Of course, I expect no less of Froley.)
  • Funnily enough, blogging about blogging really seems to appeal to you guys. I guess that is the most approachable topic for any and all readers-of-blogs.


  • “Reviews” of movies, especially if the title says it’s a review. I don’t think I do really well-thought-out reviews of anything, so mayhaps that’s a factor?
  • Video Game gush-a-thons. (Aw, dang it.)
  • My personal life.

Now, don’t go fretting, the few of you who actually like reading the stuff under the “WHAT SUCKS EGGS” category. I’m still going to write about those kinds of things.

I mean, can you imagine me not writing another post about Halo? I sure can’t. Or how about more embarrassing stories from my childhood? Who doesn’t want more of those, right?

“Why?” the Discerning Reader with High Standards might ask. “They’re clearly not garnering you any traffic.”

That may be true, but I don’t want to change what I write about for a few more followers. Heck, not even for a hundred more. It’s gonna sound uber selfish, but I want to write about what I want to write about. If I didn’t, well, what would be the point of writing anymore?

Granted, I’ll work on my titles so that they’re more enticing. And I’ll probably just start inserting random photos of Froley places too.

Froley on the couch
BAM! Bet you didn’t see that coming.

But don’t worry, I’ll still be bugging you guys with more below average content.

Here’s looking at you, kid.

  1. I’m reading this while Halo 5 does its matchmaking dance, so please continue writing about Halo (in particular, and video games in general)!

    I think you have an engaging voice and enjoy all your content 🤷

  2. I’ve seen a lot of “my blogging journey/experience” posts at the moment and I love reading them! I actually have one scheduled myself. My latest post “Blogging for Bloggers” addresses why posts that are FOR bloggers do so well and so many people have noticed that too, like you! Glad you’re finding what works for you 🙂 Blogging is fab because it’s always a learning process xxx
