We’ve come a long way since starting this blog two years ago. Last year we shared our stats and numbers, and we’re keeping the tradition alive today.
Over the course of a year, we have written 563 posts, still averaging .77 posts per day.
1,043 readers have subscribed to our site, not counting any that may follow along through a reader or by checking in each day.
At the end of May 2010, our first month of blogging, we had 253 total blog views. So far this May we’ve had 47,323 hits, roughly 187.05 times more views than our first month.
In April 2012, we had 118,831 blog views. Our highest month, March, had 147,538 blog views.
Thanks to Young House Love’s feature of our kitchen remodel, March 29th had 32,346, the most page views in a single day.
Over the course of the year, we’ve had 937,469 blog views and an all time total of 1,366,142. So far for 2012, we’ve had 494,515 total views, averaging 3,663 views per day.
We’ve uploaded 2,756 pictures.
We’ve held 50 giveaways, including the current Jillian Rene Decor giveaway, and have plans for more.
Our awesome readers have left us 9,435 comments while WordPress has blocked 75,765 spam comments. Yowza.
2012 has been a busy year for us. We accidentally found our dream house, made an offer, accepted, and closed on a new house in April, starting the whole process over. In addition to listing our first home by owner, accepting an offer, and signing closing papers, relinquishing ownership.
We’ve already torn apart a bathroom and have started putting it back together again. None of this would have happened (well, we still would have worked on our first house and bought the mountain house) without you and your support. Your comments have made me laugh, smile, and have encouraged and inspired me. I am grateful to have ‘met’ each of you. I know I don’t say it enough, but thank you for following along as we work, offering advice, and leaving amazingly kind comments.
That’s how our blog has grown over the past two years. Now we’re keeping another tradition alive. A Q and A post, so feel free to ask your questions in the comment section and we’ll write a round up post next week. Oh, and I’m trying to find a time to shoot a house tour video. Hopefully we’ll have something soon!
