  Billy's Answer

I did when I first started blogging, but it's a bad habit that I quickly stopped. I don't have time to be obsessed over stats. I very seldom pay attention to my posts views unless a potential sponsor needs to know the details.

  1. I still check from time to time, but nowhere near as obsessively as when I first started blogging!

    1. Getting a high number of pageviews was a big thing for me when I first started blogging. Now ten years later, it no longer bothers me. Actually, I don't really care what the views are anymore.

  2. Same! Though I do get sucked in from time to time and dive a little deeper into my stats.

    1. I can understand that; which is probably the reason why I avoid my stats all together.

  3. Same here. I know it will drive me bonkers to keep checking. As it is when a publisher asks for it, I can barely get the right percentage they want and usually have to go for an overall by week or month rather than day.

    1. Normally, publishers want monthly or yearly stats. If a publisher, studio, or sponsors asks for my stat, I always comply, but I don't like having to hunt down all the stats; especially the ones for the unique visitors/views, which I always find difficult to calculate.

  4. I view them every day because it gives me an insight to what the viewers like. Not to mention, I take it as motivation to do better for the next post!

  5. Blog stats can be utterly demoralising so I try and ignore them.


I love comments from my readers! However, I will delete all spam and irrelevant comments.
