The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 140,000 times in 2015. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 6 days for that many people to see it.
Congratulations Michael, they are good numbers!
Thank you Michael for all your valuable and appreciated insights – your Blog emails are read I’m sure by far more than the 140000 who actually visit the site. Can you reveal how many are registered for email notifications? (Multiply that by the number of blogs in 2015 and add that to the 140000:-) ). Look forward to 2016, and wishing you a safe and happy new year.
Steve, the report produced by WordPress only relates to people who access this site. According to WordPress the blog goes out to 2527 people which I think includes facebook (https://www.facebook.com/EburnM/?ref=hl). 1090 people ‘like’ that page. I did do a presentation on the blog for work given a very successful week (2-8 October 2015). In that week the blog ‘reached’ 23 683 people via facebook alone! (If I understand facebook that means it appeared on their news feed – whether they read it or not is a different matter). When you add the word press followers that means that in that week the blog was received by in excess of 25 000 people.
If it’s any consolation, I’d rather read your blog than view an exhibit at the Louvre…but then may be I’m in the minority!
Thanks Jack, but if ever you’re in Paris, don’t pass up the chance to go to the Louvre just in case I might post something!
