Well, it’s a new year here at the Serial Distractions Beard Straightening and Yak-Poking Emporium ™ and that means we look back at what we did with an eye to what we can do in the future.
Of the 5 most viewed posts for 2014, only the fifth was actually written in 2014. The rest were written in previous years. WordPress assures me this means my writing has staying power. I think this means I need to be writing more relevant posts. The most viewed post was Moon Over Wisconsin: Science Fiction and Big Ideas a piece I wrote back in 2010.
Views and Visitors
My blog was viewed 2197 times in 2014. Not too shabby for my little darkened corner of the internet. This is up from 1540 in 2013. We had 1033 visitors in 2013 as opposed to a whopping 1595 in 2014. This still isn’t as good as in previous years, but we seem to be picking up from the slump that was 2013.
Content-wise, I didn’t write very many reviews this year. That is definitely something I need to fix in 2015. That being said, my stand-out, Top Distraction of 2015 is easy to pick this year:
Cold in July by Joe R. Lansdale
This book has everything I love by one of my favorite authors.
I hope your 2015 is going well so far and look forward to spending it with you with some great books this year.
