Best 5 of June, 2013

Based on our Feedburner stats.

Always a nice surprise which posts make the cut.

Amazingly we have three posts both as the Best 5 of Half May – Half June, 2013 and for the whole of June.

Only some minor down time this month.

Stats

According to the stats module of the Jetpack plugin June, 2013 had 44,564 views vs May, 2013 49,829views. Less posts on average, hence probably less views.

Stay tuned!

Best 5 of Half May – Half June 2013

Based on our Feedburner stats.

Stats

According to analytics 48,256 pageviews vs 46,864 for the Half April – Half May period. We had no server issues nor stats issues this period. In one way or another I believe I have to be content with a constant number around or slightly under 50,000 pageviews.

Am very happy with our approximately 4,500 returning visitors. Our real fan base.

Stay tuned!

Based on our Feedburner stats.

Am glad one of my own photo’s reached the first place.

This concludes May blue chair month.

As explained in my prior post I’ve been busy to redress 100rds of posts that I had lost the images of in April. Therefor an average number of new posts.

Also I’ve reached a strong conclusion: Never to import a Tumblr post again Automatically. Just to reproduce them manually.

For the first time in years we had a whole month without any down time. Yay!

Stats

According to the stats module of the Jetpack plugin May had 49,829 views vs April 48,615 views. Hence my conclusion is the more posts, the more views as we lost 3 days in April, but had many more posts.

Stay tuned!

Best Half April – Half May, 2013

Based on our Feedburner stats.

Amazing none of our 100 Chairs for Inauguration Day made the cut, although the Orange Egg came close with 210 views.

Some of our May, 2013 blue chairs came close, but didn’t make the cut. At the end of May we will see who won.

Stats

We miss 3 days of stats because the site was down, then 46,864 page views according to Analytics is not so bad. Add back in the missing days and pageviews would easily have hit the 50,000 views mark. Hope so for May….

Stay tuned for the rest of blue chair month!

Top 5 of April, 2013

Based on our Feedburner stats.

In April we have published the second highest number of posts of all time: 233. In January 2012 we count 262 posts.

I’ll explain the reasons for this high number:
In April, 2013 I’ve finalized the second tranche of Tumblr imports that I started back in August 6, 2012 (If you’re interested, read Tumblr and similar Curating Tools). We still carried many “Private” Tumblr imports. That explains part of the high number of posts for April. In addition I created the 100 Orange Chairs for Inauguration Day 100 posts which explains the other part.

In one way or another the higher number of posts published influence the per post number of views in the above ranking which is lower than usual. I believe the reason is interested Feedreader users have to spread their attentions over many more posts.

Furthermore we have lost the site for almost 3 days (April 19, 20 and 21) due to a WordPress and/or server issue. Luckily through a Vaultpress backup I was able to restore the site. The only remaining issue is that we have to recreate a number of imported Tumblr posts, because we lost the photo’s in the process. The conclusion is not to import Tumblr posts anymore, but only to use it for manual inclusion here if and when apt. Moreover I see myself use Pinterest more and more rather than Tumblr.

Update: Oops, after publishing, I saw I had omitted the interesting Imprint Stools. Hence there are now top 6 in stead of top 5 featured.

Stats

Bearing in mind the site was not accessible for 3 days in April, the stats are not very reliable to compare. According to Jetpack stats April had 48,615 views vs March 52,468 views. When you add in stats of the 3 lost days, views would have been approximately the same.

May will be blue chair month. I’m planning to post approximately 2 posts per day. Stay tuned!
