“More Than 20,000 Reads” by Joan Y. Edwards

I started this blog on October 9, 2009. 20,000 divided by 28 months equals 714 a month. Actually the first months were not even close to that.

Thank you for reading my blog.

777 comments from you. That’s an average of 27 a month.

Here are the top ten blog posts of all times, other than the home page:

    May I ask what source you used for finding the top ten blog posts – It’d be great marketing information.

    • Dear Karen,
      Thanks for your congratulations! It’s a pleasure to see you here. WordPress has statistics that tells you how many readers you have for each post from the moment my blog began to the present moment. It’s pretty awesome. It also tells the grand total on my blog in the left hand column. WordPress has different widgets that you can use to put information on your blog. I’ve really been pleased with WordPress. Other blogging systems may have this information for its bloggers, too.
      Thanks for asking. Perhaps that would be a good blog post. Why I like using WordPress!
      Do something fun for you to celebrate your gift of writing and marketing!
      Joan Y. Edwards
