A Quick Recap

I successfully completely my goal of a post a day for the month of December.  Overall I think it went pretty well.  I’m not proud of everything I wrote, but I wrote every day and I hit every deadline.  The site had 646 views by 360 individuals.  I don’t normally pay any attention to those sorts of numbers, but it sounds pretty decent to me.

One odd thing is that my least favorite post, Nothing To Talk About, got a fair amount of views and my favorite post, The Best Christmas Gift Ever, didn’t do well at all.  I guess it goes to show that I’m as lousy as I thought at promotion.  That’s probably something I should try to get better at this year.

For the year, we had 6,134 views from 4,030 individuals.  Again, I have nothing to compare it to, but that feels solid.  Jamil had the highest performing post with There Was Always A Better Plan.  My best performers were the pieces I wrote at the end of 2016 about A Christmas Carol.  I find that surprising.

December was good practice.  For 2018, my goal is to take my writing more seriously.  I want to make sure I write almost every day (Not post, just write).  I’d like to get better at promoting what I do write.  And I want to try to get something published.  I’m not one for resolutions, but this one feels right.  So, I’ll give it a shot and we’ll see what happens.
