Unfortunately, with a new adventure, my blogs suffered. I haven't written anything here, or on B3 since I announced Jamberry, and for that, I am VERY sorry. Believe it or not, I did NOT forget The Jane Austen Book Club. I finished Sense & Sensibility this last weekend, so my thoughts will be there later this week, and I've also written more on my story on Wattpad, so if you're curious, feel free to check that out!
Now, the title says today's long overdue post is about Blog Analytics. I started keeping track of what my blogs and social media accounts were doing over the course of the months. Being as it's March now, I've got a bit more data to go off of. I tracked it in a simple Google Sheets file, similar to an Excel Spreadsheet.
|2015||Facebook - MJA||Facebook - 3B||Google Plus||BlogLovin-MJA||BlogLovin-3b||MJA Pageviews||3B Pageviews|
As you can see, everything has gone up between February and March, except for Twitter, and my Blog page views. I know exactly what's been happening. I don't get Twitter (though THANKS to those who've tagged me in #FF! That was so sweet! I'll try to start participating in that. :-) ), though I'm constantly told that splitting my following up into groups makes it a lot more manageable, and easy to build relationships, so I should really try that.
As for the blog views, well, why should anyone come when there isn't new content to be seen? Bad blogger! I hope to provide consistent content starting this month, and I'd love to connect with you on Twitter! Follow me @martinbeks. I'd be glad to hear from you!
I'm back. I'm hoping to continue to learn from these numbers. If you're looking for a way to grow your blog, I highly recommend jotting down your numbers from month to month, and ask yourself what's changed. It's very eye-opening.
My goal for this month is to learn as much as I can about Twitter. To continue to provide content for you, and remember, this is a place for authors to share their thoughts.
