3rd blogiversary

Last week, August 28th, marked the third blogiversary of my lead blog. (Cross-post from my other blog, Nonprofit Update).

Many thanks to those who have stopped by to read. By now you have sensed that I’m having a blast in this blogging journey.

In celebration, I’d like to provide a few stats for my three main blogs. I realize my sites are infinitesimally small in the overall blogosphere. Yet I hope in some small way stats from a small site might be an encouragement to current bloggers and others thinking of jumping into the fun world of blogging.

Data is for Nonprofit Update (nonprofitupdate.info), Attestation Update (attestationupdate.com), and Outrun Change (outrunchange.com). The cutoff date for data is August 31 as a matter of convenience.

I mention original posts which excludes cross-posting an article from one site to another. WordPress started providing visitor counts during calendar year 2013. Prior to that I was estimated the visitors. The visitor count went up a lot when I started using their data.  The page view and visitor data excludes those reading from RSS feeds and email since I don’t have any way to capture that data.

Here are a few stats I find interesting.

Not sure how much longer I’ll keep posting the annual data, but do hope this is informative for others.
