Blog readership stats (snowballing)

31,000 and up

To date, I haven't taken a great deal of note of my blog readership statistics here (actually, none at all).

When I first commenced this blog I posted somewhat infrequently and for the first 9 months it seems that I barely had any readers at all!

In 2012, average readership was under 5000 per month.

Always designed to be something of a "slow burn", the readership numbers gradually increased to an average of 12,000 per month in 2013.

In 2014, average readership increased to a shade under 20,000 per month.

Ramp up

Two months ago at the behest of a Twitter follower I began tweeting links to my posts, and have also shared more posts on LinkedIn and Facebook.

This has had a notable effect on readership, jumping from just 17,132 in January to more than 31,000 over April to date.

Cumulative blog hits are therefore snowballing nicely.

Standard measure

The standard measurement for blog readership, of course, is how many times over the grand 2769 seater concert hall at the Sydney Opera House could be filled. 

And the answer is that the concert hall could be filled 11 times over per month with more than enough folk left over to sell the interval ice creams.

I've also now added a "Subscribe by email" button over here somewhere ==>

And thanks for reading! 

Next stop 50,000...
