#MyFriendAlexa – A Look Back

It’s nice to know when a challenge is successful. Perhaps this is the first of the “month-long” challenges this year that has been, and I’m happy. I remember missing MyFriendAlexa challenge last year by a whisker, so I was determined not to miss it this time. Though I haven’t tracked blogging stats in a long time, I did this time.

I started out with an Alexa ranking of 3098369. It was nice to see it dipping steadily through the month. The highest drop in a day was 115457. On one day, it increased by 7, but that happens I suppose. I end the month with my Alexa rank at 1013867.

Two of my posts got more than 50 comments from readers. The first few days saw more than 100 pageviews on the blog too, which I’m happy about. More importantly, I read at least 4 blogs each day regularly for the first 28 days.

Hope to continue my reading habit into the next month too, as I take part in the #WriteTribeProBlogger challenge (9 posts for the month), and hopefully write each day outside the challenge too.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
