That "Tomahawks" post

I have been looking over the stats for my blog for the month. On October 13, I posted about my son throwing Tomahawks.  Seventy-three people have viewed that post, and people still are -- thirteen did in the last 24 hours -even though I have posted a number of  times since then.

The next most popular post was my first one for this Ultimate Blog Challenge, posted on October 1,  and has 64 page views.

I don't get it. I haven't intentionally done anything new to promote or share that post. Also, it isn't a particularly exciting or engaging piece. There have been no comments, so no clues from readers.

I'd love to know what is causing people to look at that post, because then I would know what to keep doing and maybe my readership would go up.

(Tomahawks...tomahawks?)


Let me know if you have any thoughts....



This is my 26th post for the October Ultimate Blog Challenge. One behind and time is short!

  2. I am always curious about my own blog readership. I think that some of it has to do with the title. Someone is doing a search on a word or phrase that is in the title and come across the post.

    1. Yeah, it's an interesting thing to think about. Roommate reunion soon?

  3. Sometimes certain posts just trigger a greater level of "hits" on a search engine. I have one post that has generates several hundred hits a day when more recent things go seemingly unread. It is the great google mystery...
