Another year has gone by and another year of the A to Z Challenge has passed. This was my 2nd year and the 2nd time I completed all the days. Although I must admit, this year was fairly easy compared to last. Mainly because I didn’t really write much this year. It did take some time to screen cap each artists songs so it wasn’t a walk in the park, but it was nice have a few letters not having very many groups. I had planned on staying a few days ahead with my posts but it didn’t work out that way. I did manage to post on the day that I was supposed to, just some days were a lot later in the evening than others.
While I did have more interaction with readers, my pageviews weren’t any different from last month. My followers only went up 3 people so while I did finally get off of 53, it wasn’t by much. Which is fine, I image probably 50 of those followers following me probably don’t read much anyways. My wife is a follower and I’m pretty sure even she doesn’t read me anymore.
The A to Z Challenge did get me to finally blog again, at least for 27 of the 30 days. I’m not sure it gave me the kick in the ass that I was hoping it would to get me blogging more. I was doing a lot of book stuff before I started my new job, now I don’t take much time to read anymore so that’s out. Little league games start this Saturday so I’m sure I can squeak a few more blog posts about the kids. We’ll see.
If you are one of the regular readers of this blog, you know I like stats. So let’s check out my stats for this April.
- Songs shown – 1651
- Different artists – 528
- Songs added since April 1st – 153
- Total of songs accounted for – 1804
- Songs that I missed somehow – 138
- Actual total of songs on the playlist – 1942
I’m not sure how I missed 138 songs but somehow I did. I know I didn’t hide any, I made it a point to post everything. Oh well.
I got some regular commentors, a couple that posted on multiple posts so they didn’t just stop by, leave a comment, then bolt. To the regular commentors, a big thank you for sticking with me and for also for all the new suggestions in music. As you can tell, I added quite a few because of those suggestions.
I’ll try to get back to regular posting, I’m not guaranteeing anything, but I’ll try
