The Stat Connection
Go to your Stats page and check your top 3-5 posts. Why do you think they’ve been successful? Find the connection between them, and write about it.
After fooling around with my stats page by going to a place that I didn’t know existed, I discovered that I do have access to stats that are more than a week old. I’m so pitifully unsavvy about accessing such things. Poor, poor me.
But to find my top-viewed and best liked posts I didn’t have to go back very far at all. All of these were published in 2016:
Without You http://wp.me/p4O8fw-1Gz
A Pauper’s Death http://wp.me/p4O8fw-1Et
Bathtub Follies http://wp.me/p4O8fw-1F1
Piano Player in a Whorehouse http://wp.me/p4O8fw-1Cs
I hope I’m learning to connect with readers more, and certainly I’ve learned how to interact with other bloggers in more productive ways.
Try as I might, though, I cannot find any connection between these four posts, other than that they were all written by me.
Without You and Bathtub Follies are both slice-of-my-life stories and have a bit of humor to them, but A Pauper’s Death is a rather mournful poem, and Piano Player in a Whorehouse is a bit of futuristic fiction set in a post-Trump presidency America.
If I knew what made them succesful I’d copy down that formula and sell it; although, to be honest they weren’t THAT succesful. One of these days, though, as God is my witness, I’ll publish a piece that gets more than a mere 55 hits. And then, I’m going to celebrate with a donut.
