Stats ~ More Than Just Numbers

Monday, February 27, 2012

For me stats are not about looking to get an ego boost, or more commonly in my experience, to be humbled ;-) they are about much more than that...

Without looking at my stat page I would have no idea what posts you all are enjoying or where my projects may have been featured.

Without my stats I would have never known that my post popular post on Pinterest has been my tea light wall art, or that it was featured on The Styleist Section of the Huffinton Post!!

Or that my hutch was featured on the HGTV Blog!! 

There have been times where I almost didn't hit the post button because I thought no one would care about the silly review or project I did and it turns out it is one of my biggest hits?! 

Who would have thought my Air Freshener Review would have been even read by one person, let alone be one of the top 3 posts I have done!? 

Of course stats can be disheartening when I hear the crickets chirp when I post something that turns out to be my favorite piece in our house, like my Wall Decor from a Hutch...

But that's stats don't rule my posts or what my home decor will look like.  I only post when I feel that I have something worthwhile to look at or to say, which you all know is not everyday ;-) 

I do however think it is a fabulous thing to have the opportunity to feel like I can get into a my reader's minds a bit by seeing what they like. 

Thank you to all of you who read my posts and surprise me by Pinning my projects!  I am amazed every single day of the kindness and loyalty you all have.  I never imagined in a million years that I would have even one follower, besides my mom ;-)

Hey Brooke!
Just stopping by to visit ... this post is so true! -- isn't it ironic how the projects/posts you THINK will be the biggest hits - are sometimes the biggest flops in blogland!? Totally baffles me, too!? But it happens time and time again to me! :-)
Excited to be a part of Jaime's new "group" with you!
Just followed you on Linky Followers, too! :-)
