I’ve had this blog since December 16, 2011. It’s one of the oldest accounts I currently have active on the Internet (I made my NaNoWriMo account in 2008, and my former deviantART account was created in 2007). If I include this here blog posts, I’ve made 271 posts in total.
Of course, that only includes posts I haven’t deleted. There are a lot of posts I’ve deleted, especially in the early years. Fortunately, I stopped deleting posts in 2017 – mostly because I knew by that time what I did and didn’t want to include on this blog.
Here is a table showing every blog post (and the associated word count) that I’ve ever posted to this blog. It doesn’t include this one.
|Year||Online Posts||Word Count||Deleted Posts||Word Count||Total Posts||Word Count|
I sure wrote a lot of blog posts from 2012-2014, but it doesn’t compare at all to 2021, when I made the decision to have 3 posts per week fairly early on. I had a goal of 150 and I hit it before the end of the year!
Unsurprisingly, 2021 is the most popular year for this blog, and 2017, when I wrote one post per month, was the least popular. This proves the obvious: writing more blog posts brings more traffic to your blog.
Am I going to write as much in 2022 as I did in 2021? Well, no. In 2021, I had two serial novels going, I was posting old artwork every week, and I wrote a bunch about my old conlangs. I haven’t exactly run out of things to write about, but there are certainly fewer topics I want to cover.
