Spike in Page Views

My blog currently says it has gotten 12,713 page views in the last 30 days. That is a ton for my blog.

February will be the highest number of views this blog has ever gotten. Back in June of 2016, I hit 11,124 page views. Then for a little over half a year, the number fell steadily. It sort of had some ups and downs until late last year.

Now the blog seem to be trending up. I seem to be trending very steeply.

I'm not sure how much of this traffic is robotic (I suspect the vast majority of it is), but I like to pretend that every page view is an actual real person.

12,713 makes me feel very popular.

Almost half of those page views happened on two days ... 2/6 and 2/23.

On those days, anyone coming to would have seen Progress on #5000MilesIn2020 and Brewing the Stone Soup IDA as the first articles on the list.

Very few viewers actually clicked in to read those pages.

The top 10 viewed posts were:

Those top 2 were posted in 2012. Not sure why they are so popular now.

3 through 10 were posted this month.

So .... what does all of this mean?


Just wanted an excuse to mention  12,713 page views.
