I wasn’t gonna do it. Because I had a sneaking suspicion that it might be a) a bit tedious for me and b) a bit tedious for you.
But then I got sent a Pink Tape “annual report” from Jetpack, the bods what do my webstats.
It’s gratifying to know that the most traffic I have got on the Pink Tape is when someone else writes a guest post (thank you Alison Burt) or when I’ve said something to upset them over at F4J. And that old chestnut “What’s the difference between a barrister and a solicitor?” just won’t lie down and die.
Those of you who have nothing better to do than to harangue / flirt / correct / bamboozle or amuse with your rude / witty / incoherent / amazingly articulate comments may see your avatar in lights in the commenters hall of fame in said annual report. Unfortunately I appear have stolen the top slot on that because I am burdened with the politeness gene that makes me compulsively respond to all comments / have a pathological need to have the last word, depending on your perspective.
Happily, I can now answer the regular question of how often I blog – according to the stats I’ve produced 130 posts this year, which I reckon equates to about one every 3 days. Henceforth I shall now confidently respond with “2 or 3 a week”, rather than a prolonged “Errrrr…. it depends”.
I remain undecided as to whether in 2013 I should ban all guest blog posts to preserve my ego, or just give Matt O’Connor a regular slot, to improve my stats.
I’ll have a little New Year’s Eve tipple and get back to you on my 2013 strategy…
