The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog. Woot! WOOt! I think it is awesome that WordPress has made this available to their users.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,200 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

I found this blog post from The Daily Post and felt like it was written just for me. I have found myself repeatedly checking my stats and getting addicted to watching my numbers rise. Let us be honest, it is a huge ego boost to get likes and followers.
So what’s a blogger to do? If you are writing about things that interest you, writing quality content, and you are enjoying yourself~~ that is what is truly important. Not the amount of traffic, followers, or the number of likes.
I am going to diet, detox, and abstain from checking my stats.
How about you? Are you going to take your Stats and Shove it?
