So on April 17, 2013, I started tracking my blogging statistics. I tell people that is when I really started blogging because up until that point, I really had no idea of the impact I was having and the value I was adding. So what are my stats?
My blog has been viewed 15,149 times by 3,953 people.
The average visit duration is 2 minutes and 8 seconds.
65% of the people visit multiple pages each visit.
People from 80 countries speaking 52 different languages have visited the blog.
Over 1/3 of the visits come from people using a mobile device.
Most of the people who have found my blog from a search engine (1,082 people) used Google to find it.
Those stats, while not impressive to other bloggers, are absolutely fantastic for me! During this time, my blog has went through several design and topic changes. Each change brought more and more visitors with an audience that is more and more engaged. What happened? I started adding value to the community. I found my voice. I started listening to people who have been doing this for years and took what I could use and threw away the rest.
Since I have been honing my skills, I have decided that the blog will go through another change in the future. No branding will change, only a design change and a content change. Now that I will be launching Millennial Cop, this blog will go back to being just that; a blog. It will no longer focus solely on just leadership material. It will once again become a repository for all of my randomness. I can’t wait to get on that. In the meantime, make sure that you SUBSCRIBE to my email list and check out the YouTube Channel. Oh yeah, subscribe to that too!
