Statistics: The most important reason why I adore wordpress :)

 

image

I am a blogger since more than 6.5 years (05/05/2007). I like the free blogging service provided by wordpress. In particular, I like the multiple statistics that wordpress gives about your blog. Whether you want these statistics per day, week, month, quarter, year, or since the first day of establishment of your blog.

If you do not have a blog, then this is how do the statistics for a Blog, 6.5-year-old with  276,218 hits views, look like. The following screenshots are from the statistics page:

5. Summary about comments:

– Top recent commenter: In the screenshot below,  I am the most common commenter with 284 comments. They count when you post comment on posts in your Blog. The rest are other commenters on my Blog. WordPress asks commenters on Blogs to enter emails when before they publish comments. This email is stored in your Blog and each time the person comments using the same email, event if he changed his name, the comments will be counted under the toal number of comments that the person made in your blog. In addition, when a Blog honor approvs a comment of yours to be published in his/her Blog, next times you use the same to publish a comment, the comment will appear automatically without the blog owner approving it.

Do you know now why I love wordpress?

Is it a good idea to have a lengthy “About” page for a Blog?

Bored! What a feeling!

Source: Flicker account of Mrs eNil.

I often get asked why do I blog in English not in Arabic. On the 20th of last June, I decided to write my reasons for Blogging in English in the “About” page of this blog. In my Blog, I named this page as “Who is Moa’bite“.  On the 25th of October, I wrote a post giving more details why I published my reasons and I gave examples of comments that I got from my friends about my use of English not Arabic (P.S. I got very interesting comments after that! You can read them below that post).

Since the publication of my reasons for blogging in English, I have been happy with the “Who is Moa’bite’” page of this blog. There was only one problem. I noticed that the “Who is Moa’bite” page Blog became EXTREMELY long. Personally, I do not like a lot lengthy descriptions in the “About” pages of Blogs. But what could I do? The topic of why I blog in English is very important. Moreover, did anybody think that I have a long “About” section?  How long is long?

Less than 3 hours ago, a wordpress Blogger made a very clear comment about how long my “About” section is. I know nothing about this Blogger except that she knows very good German. The reason is that the “About” section of her blog contains very little information about her.

What made this blogger comment that my “About” page is lengthy,  is that I had told her that her Blog’s “About” page contained very little information about her. She responded: “You want to learn more about me? Perhaps I will write a bit more in mine “About” page. What do you think? Your “About” page is in opposite very long”. This “constructive” criticism took place in German:

On the opposite side, is my “About” page very long? The following is a comparison of the number of words in my “About” page and her “About” page. I used Microsoft Word to make the word count. Her about page has “132” words. On the opposite side, my “About” page has 8.45 times words as hers; it has 1,116 words. I think that we are both extremes! Mine being bigger!

The "word count" of words in the Blog of the "mysterious" blogger.

The “word count” of words in the Blog of the “mysterious” blogger.

The "word count" in my Blog.

The “word count” in my Blog.

As a result, I decided to publish a separate post in my Blog that contains my reasons for Blogging in English not in Arabic. Or in general, why I think that it is nowadays a disadvantage to blog in any language other than English.

After making this change, my “About” page is now 57.0% smaller. It now contains 640 words. I think this is better! Right now, I cannot think of a way to make this page shorter. The following text in blue is effectively lengthening it. However, I need to keep it. Who knows, a German professor, or maybe any person with strong German “medical” connections , can help me in what I am dreaming of.

I dream of getting my medical specialty in Germany. Germany is a great country. If I am to become a great and famous doctor, then Germany is one of the few countries in the world to go to. I am not only dreaming but also working to achieve that dream. I need some help, can you help? (Recommendation for training of at least one month duration in a very famous German University Hospital. Why very famous? With little work, I can secure myself a position in any regular hospital in Germany. But, as a non-German, to be accepted in a famous University hospital, then this needs a recommendation. Maybe you can help me. I really want to be a good doctor. I also shall work for the development of any hospital or doctor that will recruit me)

Finally, I thank the mysterious blogger who provided me with the above valuable feedback. I changed mine, will she change hers?

Thank you Miss Rainbowsprout!

Statistics of the Blog of Moa’bite for the Year 2012: ~89,000 views

In the year 2012, I had about 89,000 views; this is really very great! When I started blogging in 2007, I used to complain from how few views I had not to mention someone taking some of his/her time to drop a comment:

Posted by Me, Moabite on 09/07/2009 at 10:15 AM  

it seems that no one care to drop a word… Since publishing this page, till this day July 9th 2009. No one ever sent me any comment regarding the design, content, or suggestions or objections on my blog.

Surely, there is someone generous enough out there who will care to. When? Surely, this day will come. Don’t you think so?

Source: “Who is Moa’bite”, https://amanfrommoab.wordpress.com/about-me/

However, “practice makes perfect”. In the year 2012 alone, I had 3.89 times the number of views to my blog during the years 2007-2011:

  • From 05/05/2007 – 31/12/2011: I had total views of ~23,000.
  • From 1/1/2012 – 31/12/2012: I had total views of about:

23, 000 x 3.89 =

~89,000 views in 2012 alone

More statistics:

  • My first post in this blog was on: 05/05/2007

I’m very happy that I finally took the decision and started my own Blog… I tribute this to (Jack) whom I find by chance in his own Skypecasts today!

Source: “My First Blog”, https://amanfrommoab.wordpress.com/2007/05/05/my-first-blog/

  • Number of views of my blog from 2007 till December 31, 2010: ~8,000 views
  • Number of views of my blog from 2007 till December 31, 2011: ~23,000 views
  • Number of views of my blog in 2011: ~15,000

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 15,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

  • For the full details of the 2012 statistics of my blog, you can refer to the WordPress automatically generated report below.

I hope that whoever viewed my Blog found something useful, or at least interesting. I didn’t expect that my Blog would one day have such the number of views. I am surely planning to continue blogging for the year 2013. I hope that I can publish things that would be of benefit to some people in this world. Human knowledge is said to double every few years. I guess we bloggers have the right to say that we are taking part in this “doubling” process!

Warmest regards and best wishes for a happy, successful, and prosperous new year 2013,
Moa’bite,

Here’s an excerpt:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 89,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
