New Years–2014 Review, part 2

Check out my last post if you haven’t already to see the first part of my 2014 review. Todays part is all be about my blogs and my social media/internet habits.

The other stat I kept last year, and continued this year was how many words written on this blog, let’s take a look as compared to previous years.



As you can see to the left, I posted 35 less posts this year. I was probably on pace to get 200 or so again but the last 3 months only had 3 posts each. I just haven’t been in the blogging mood. The only reason I got as many posts as I did was because for a couple of months, I was blogging a journal entry every day.  I did reach 300,000 words on my 594th post in August of this year and up until this post, I’m showing 634 posts with a total of 321,709 words. I’m not really sure what will become of this blog since I rarely use it anymore. I would like to use it more but I just don’t really have much to say. I seem to be using my tumblr blogs more often, because I don’t really have to say anything. I just repost or post pictures that I enjoy.

We’ll start off with my blogger blogs. Yes, I have more than 1.


  • 137 posts in 2014
  • 8 additional followers in 2014
  • 46655 pageviews in 2014

This blog is sports card related. Mainly baseball cards (yes, I collect them).


  • 1192 posts in 2014
  • 0 additional followers in 2014
  • 2957 pageviews in 2014

This is essentially an index of all sports related pictures that I’ve posted to all of My Sports Obsession related blogs and sports related Pinterest boards. I haven’t advertised yet until I get caught up with all my previous posts so that’s why the stats aren’t really anything.


  • 164 posts in 2014
  • 5 additional followers in 2014
  • 28709 pageviews in 2014

I’m hoping I don’t need to explain this blog, since you’re on it now.


  • 26 posts in 2014
  • 693 pageviews in 2014

This isn’t actually my blog, but I guest post on it. I post anytime I get any University of Michigan related sports cards. I don’t keep track of followers since it isn’t my blog and the stats I have above are related to my posts only.

My next set of blogs are all tumblr blogs. I’m more seen on these because I can queue them up on the weekends to run all week. Plus I don’t have to type anything out, just post or repost pictures.


  • 345 posts in 2014
  • 1 additional follower in 2014
  • 4 likes or reblogs in 2014

I post a lot of different stuff but it’s mainly TV and movie posts. I also post my Last Song of the Day on most days there as well.


  • 436 posts in 2014
  • 40 additional followers in 2014
  • 1133 likes or reblogs in 2014

On this blog, I post, obviously, cats. Every 5th post is a picture of my kitty. Lots of funny cat gifs.


  • 589 posts in 2014
  • 30 additional followers in 2014
  • 91 likes or reblogs in 2014

On this blog, it’s sports, all the time. Lots of White Sox and Colts but also a lot of other stuff. Including vintage sports photographs. NBA, NFL, NCAA and MLB.


  • 518 posts in 2014
  • 58 additional followers in 2014
  • 292 likes or reblogs in 2014

This blog is all Michigan Wolverines. A lot of sports but non-sports also, anything related to the University of Michigan.

Now on to my Twitter stats, and again, yes, I have more than 1. Twitter is annoying in the fact that I have to have a different email address for each account. Unlike blogger and tumblr, where you can just log on once and click which blog you want.


  • 4835 new followers in 2014
  • 587 tweets in 2014
  • 131 retweets or favorites in 2014

This is my main and personal account. I tweet out links to my blog posts from this blog and my A Day in the Life of a Nobody blog as well as personal tweets. My Instagram usually posts here as well.


  • 4441 new followers in 2014
  • 626 tweets in 2014
  • 212 retweets or favorites in 2014

The only thing that gets tweeted out here are blog posts from the Cats Are Cuter blog up above and once in awhile, I’ll retweet Instagram pics of my kitty.


  • 4320 new followers in 2014
  • 959 tweets in 2014
  • 117 retweets or favorites in 2014

This blog goes along with the 2 My Sports Obsession blogs listed above as well as I tweet out any sports related tweets that I may have, such as games I’m watching and such.


  • 4199 new followers in 2014
  • 426 tweets in 2014
  • 60 retweets or favorites in 2014

This blog goes along with the Michigan related blogs above. I also tweet out personal stuff that’s related to the school such as when I’m watching their sports or any other related tweets I may have.

Since we’re already on social media, we’ll continue with that.


  • 2603 things pinned (17 different boards).facebook
  • 56 status’ posted in 2014
  • 88 other things posted in 2014
  • 50 personal photos posted in 2014

These stats are from my personal facebook page. As you can see I don’t really post a whole lot compared to a lot of other people.


  • 50 posts to Instagram

  • AOL – 2422 read emails
  • Gmail – 5187 read emails
  • GMX – 660 read emails
  • Hotmail – 1370 read emails
  • Yahoo – 3259 read emails

Yes, I have 5 email accounts. That’s because of stupid Twitter who you have to have a different email address for each account. The Gmail is the one I use for personal stuff which is why it has more and the yahoo one is the one I use to sign up on websites and newsletters and such.

I guess I should have put this on part 1 since it isn’t really internet related. Oh well.

  • 610 incoming minutes used
  • 766 outgoing minutes used

I have no idea how those are so high because I rarely talk on the phone. I round up so if it was a 10 second phone call, it gets counted as a minute so that’s part of the reason.

  • 2903 texts that were alerts of some kind.
  • 11992 incoming and outgoing texts that were to people I know personally.

I get alerts from my bank, the local sherriff’s department and Google calendar alerts. As well as some others but those are the only ones I can think of at the moment.

The majority of the personal texts are to Cheri, my mom, my brother and Samantha.


So there you go, those are my stats for 2014. Why were you a slacker and not keep stats?

  1. I can see how much you love stats. Was all very interesting. I don't think I could keep up with you on social media. LOL!
