As you can sort of tell, I’ve been taking some time off from blogging, and the little blogging I’ve done here has actually been primarily commentary on photos I’ve taken and posted to my Flickr account… which is not really the same thing as blogging, at all. But I have been conscious of how my work online has not been focused of late, on any forum in which I participate: Flickr, YouTube, WordPress, and Facebook. Of those, Facebook and the new Google+ have been the most active this summer — but I don’t have access to stats for either of them.
The other three, though, do provide me with stats, and they’re instructive.
- My WordPress blog, this blog, has received slightly under 35,000 views in the years it has been in operation.
- My YouTube channel has not quite 20,000 views, most of them in the last two years since I did all those videos last spring.
- And my Flickr account will surpass 150,000 views sometime in the next few days.
