The people of WordPress.com send me a few figures and remarks reviewing this blog for 2015: “The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 14,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.” Again a “YAY” for the last year and again compared to the last year this is one extra sold-out performance and will be motivation to continue writing. Thank you all readers!!
When I got the report, I thought that this year there would be another comparison than the above, but the people of WordPress seem to stick to the comparison with the Sidney Opera House. So I decided to look for something different, like “This blog was viewed about 14,000 times in 2015. If there was the international fetish bondage competition at Munich Olympic Hall, it would be sold out for that many people to see it!” The Olympic Hall is used for concerts, sporting events, exhibitions or trade fairs. Olympiahalle opened in 1972 and was the venue for gymnastics and handball events at the 1972 Summer Olympics. The seating capacity for the arena varies from 12,150 up to 14,000. The current seating capacity 15,500 set after a massive overhaul that was completed in 2009 (source: wikipedia.com).
In 2015, there were 96 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 393 posts, so in average we published 2 blog entries per week in 2015. I uploaded 471 pictures, that’s more than one per day. As mentioned above, we had more than 14,000 clicks on this blog last year, getting close to 40 clicks in average every day. We had more than 4,300 visitors from all over the world, from 86 countries in all.
Most clicks came from The United States (3,700). Germany (1,250) & United Kingdom (2,750) were not far behind and combined this year we even got more clicks from our home countries than from the US, yay!
Most visitors found our blog from deviantart, where I also publish my pictures. So there developed a link between this blog and my deviantart account. Like in 2014 not only the actual texts did attract readers, the most popular texts are a bit older mostly. And the “Enjoying bondage” series seems to be popular. Here’s the ranking of the Top 5:
1. Sissy sold – August 2013 – 163 clicks
2. Enjoying bondage series – April: Selfies – April 2014 – 138 clicks
3. Enjoying Bondage April 2015: Dio’s tied-up simploring tour – 125 clicks
4. Second Life Fetish Fashion Blog – February 2012 – 122 clicks
5. Kara Bound – April 2014 – 116 clicks
This blog contains a lot of memories for us and for the people close to us. It started as a little diary to keep up with all the things happening around us in Second Life and has grown with time. Considering how much of our free time in real life we spend in this virtual world it makes sense to keep memories like you do in real life. The memories are real and stay vivid and present this way. That we attract readers who follow our ways in SL makes me happy and a bit proud (everybody is a bit vane, aren’t we?)
Thank you all for reading and following our blog.
Have a great year 2016!
