The Best and Worst of November 2015

It’s been a rough few months posting-wise but I’ve finally got things back on track.  So let’s take a look at what my stats were like despite hardly posting anything throughout November.

In terms of views, November has been the worst month since July with only 4,114 page views (including 2,942 unique views).  That’s not surprising considering how little I posted throughout the month.  December will definitely be better.

So what were the best posts this month?

1.  How to Read 100 Pages in an Hour

2.  The Hunger Games and Ancient Rome

3.  Why Girls Hate Game of Thrones—A Rebuttal

4.  The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton

5.  End of Days by Eric Walters

None of this is really that surprising.  Now that school and university are back in session, lots of students are trying to cram in as much reading in as little time as possible.  My speed-reading article will always remain popular for that reason.  And with the movie Mockingjay Part 2 coming out, it’s not surprising that my Hunger Games article surpassed the usually more popular Game of Thrones article.  I was surprised to see End of Days by Eric Walters up in the top 5 but then again I suspect it’s a popular-ish book for novel studies for middle school students.

Now that we’ve seen the best articles, what were the worst articles this month?

1.  Serenade by Emily Kiebel

2.  The Eagle and the Raven by Pauline Gedge

3.  My New York Trip Day #3: The Metropolitan Museum of Art

4.  Eldest by Christopher Paolini

5.  The Sorceress by Michael Scott

Like with the best posts this month, none of these are particularly surprising.  They’re either dated posts like my New York trip post or they’re older/less popular books that obviously don’t get as much search engine traffic.  As usual they’ll probably disappear from the list next month.

So that was how my November went.  There was sparse posting but December will be much better, especially once I do migrate over to WordPress.org.  How was your November?
