Book Blogger Hop ~ Peeking at Views


The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week poses a book-related question. The hop starts on Friday and ends on Thursday. The purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers.

Do you sneak a peek at the number of views your posts have gotten? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)

I don’t really peek at how many views a post got. I do, though, want to know how many views my blog has had each day. Just to see what the trends are and to know what was good, what was apparently not so interesting, and figure out timing better. There are times of the year that are just bad for everyone – like school starting back up and the holidays. At the end of the month when I write my monthly Chit Chat, I will go back and find the views for the entire month. In my monthly, I used to do popular posts (by views) and ones that needed more love. It actually bothered me a lot knowing which ones were unpopular, so I quit doing that.

  1. I can’t look at page view stats or it will stress me out. I learned that for sanity’s sake, I had to avoid doing that. I feel like I am a happier blogger as a result.
