In high school, there was a popular slogan replete with bumper stickers going around town. The sticker/slogan read:
After reading through several blogs bragging of enormous post counts as that are indeed higher than mine, I felt it was a good slogan for my year end blog stats post. So,
It’s not about post counts but rather how much your reader counts on a post from you.
- I’ve blogged something at least once per day. Quite frequently I’ve posted up to 3 posts per day. I’ve developed templates and routines that make this easy and fun to do.
- I’ve fulfilled my 11 year dream this year of making Riley Central a place where all my online projects come together. I crosspost from/to flickr, tumblr, WordPress dot com (Note, my blog is not a WP dot com but rather a WordPress dot org blog. There are many plugins I use that cannot be used on WordPress dot com), twitter and other profiles. Let me make sure you understand how cool this is: ex. I can upload a high res photo to flickr, add a description and have it appear immediately as a draft post on my blog.
- I have a theme I love and am very experienced with: twenty eleven I know what I sacrifice and what I gain by using it.
I make goals and measure my success by them through #ROW80
I know more about blogging on WordPress than I can ever relay on a blog, so I won’t try.
I am a successful blogger based on my own measurable goals that I set. Here’s to more of that and personal growth through blogging in 2016. To all who put up with my typos and sometimes needlessly long word counts, I thank you and salute you!
Happy New Year!
