Some Blaugust Stats

I posted about stats a few times during Blaugust, but wanted to take a moment to show the final outcome for last month.


Not bad at all considering this is a fairly new and unknown blog. Let’s break it down a little.


Interestingly enough, my most visited post was simply an embedded YouTube video about the FFXIV Heavensward dragoon rotation. Certainly an awesome video, but not a true post. Again, we see two other non-August posts were related to Heavensward and still getting a lot of views.

Seems The Game That Changed My Life was my most popular Blaugust post overall. I can’t believe that so many folks came to see me all bummed out on the Bummed Gamer day… kinda embarrassing, actually. Funny out of all of the game boxes I posted, Horizons (now Istaria) may be the least known but the most visited!


Search engines (Google) were my biggest source of traffic, naturally.

I saw a huge leap in visitors from Twitter compared to before. But what’s cool is all the traffic that came from Anook! Those posts had to be specifically for Blaugust, because that’s really the only things I posted to Anook for this blog. I’m so very happy that Anook got some love during this event because I really think it’s a good site. 🙂

Then, of course, my own sites: and – Interesting how many people did click through from Tumblr this month.

Feedly and Flowreader gave me some views.

As for top blogs sending me traffic, thanks to Atheren’s Adventures and Tales of the Aggronaut!

Thanks again for a great Blaugust! Keep writing! 


    1. That’s because my blog’s been in Google’s system longer than yours. It always takes a few months of posting before Google really starts to recognize a new domain. That’s why it’s important to keep blogging and putting stuff out there for Google to pick up.

      You can see March and April were months before Google really found me, and I was just setting up on top of that. I didn’t start seriously posting until May, and you can see that’s when traffic started moving.

      Don’t give up and keep developing your new branding!! 😀

      1. I did get some more from Twitter for some reason though, perhaps timing of the day. I don’t mind my numbers, we have different types of writing styles and content, so comparing is always a bit silly. I was just happy for you lil blog <3

    1. That’s interesting. I’m curious about that – I always made sure to post a picture with my blogs, so maybe that called attention to my content? Did you add images to yours?

      1. I inserted pictures in about half of the items I posted on Anook. I bet it was me. I read everybody’s posts over the month by clicking on the links on Anook… everybody’s posts but my own!!!

  1. Interesting. My most popular post of all time is also essentially a “click-thru” video. It also tops my monthly list over a year and a half later.
