I am very pleased that so many readers are enjoying the stories that I have been reblogging recently.
For those of you considering doing something similar, my up to date Stats might prove to be of interest.
I know that only a small percentage of WordPress bloggers view their Stats on a regular basis. Based on that, this may or may not be informative, but it is a good example of how Stats can affect what you decide to do on your blog.
When I reblog a post, in this case fictional stories from some years ago, the Stats inform me very accurately about who reads what. Over the past couple of weeks, the reblog has received more than 60% of the views. But those seeing this, and liking it, rarely go on to read the full original story. Around 32% actually read the story, whether or not they comment, or like either version.
This is not a complaint, merely an observation. So just over one third of readers and followers actually click the link to read the whole original story.
I don’t know about you, but I find that very interesting indeed.
