A Look Back At The Blog In 2015

Posted on by



I received my 2015 year in blogging report from Jetpack. You can view the report here or check out the fun information below. Most of my interactions came from blog hops I participated in. I’ve listed all the Guest Posts, Interviews, and Reviews that where featured on the blog in 2015. It was a great year and I look forward to another fun year in 2016.

Crunchy Numbers

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 40,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 15 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

The busiest day of the year was November 27th with 330 views. The most popular post that day was Black Friday Book Bonanza Hop: Nov 27th – 30th #Giveaway.
