No, this is not some weird April Fool’s day joke. Honest. Although, looking at my stats this month, I sort of wish it was. My overall monthly views are up from February at 3,488 hits and 1,998 unique views, but they are still lagging behind the record-setting month of January. This very likely has to do with me taking so many holidays and posting reviews of obscure books. Obscure books = less search engine traffic = less overall views. I’m happy to say that as far as I know, I’m home all of April, so we’ll see if this is a new disturbing trend or only temporary.
Now here are my 5 best posts for March:
We have two newcomers this month! Both 1984 by George Orwell and my article What Makes a Character Memorable? are completely new to my Best and Worst series. I have to say that this is a refreshing change from the usual five that top this list. Of course some of the regulars are still there, but at least there seems to be more traffic going to my newer articles. What about my ‘worst’ articles, though?
Once again, every single book at the list of the worst five articles is completely new. Notice that they’re all book reviews too? It seems my articles are more popular, as I observed long ago. Well, at least the good news is that my worst articles keep rotating and aren’t like the best articles where it’s pretty much the same 5 every month.
So how did March go for you?
