Hits are the standard measure – how many people visited the blog through the week, the month, the year.
Comments are also an important parameter – because they measure engagement… that is, how involved those visitors were with the contents of the blog.
And then there’s the most popular posts – because they give you an idea of what people like about your blog.
So, here’s the Top Five posts for 2015, the ones that got the most views…
. The Lost Flash Gordon
About the original animated Flash Gordon movie.
Just one of the posts I did this year about old animation – because I grew up with those cartoons.
. The Anti-Damsel Blogathon: Mrs Emma Peel
I took part in a number of blogathons in 2015, and I’ll start 2016 with another. I like blogathons, they are a great way to discover new blogs and to explore unusual topics. And the post about Emma Peel was a winner – unsurprisingly. You can’t fail with Emma Peel.
. An Eye for Detail: Fortunino Matània
Fortunino Matània was a giant of an artist, and it was a pleasure discovering his work. Apparently, I was not the only one appreciating his drawings.
. Writing a Lot: How I do It
Ah, a classic writing post, halfway between a collection of tips and some unashamed bragging.
I wrote a lot in 2016, and it looks like I’ll have to pick up my pace in 2016.
. Italian Style
This was really a surprise, to me – an impromptu post about national identity and genre fiction, it was the fifth most-read post of 2015. Apparently it struck a sensitive nerve.
And as a bonus, here’s the Top Ten Search Keys in 2015.
