Horses, Life, A Touch of Geek

A screenshot of Facebook statistics for Rachel’s post as of 2/24/17. [Why I Ride by Rachel Wamble]


The same thing happened with the previous youth essay [Lightning in a Bottle ]. While the stats package has changed in the intervening two years, I judge the reach to be about the same. More FB shares on one; more direct hits on the other. (Since I use instead of .org, I don’t get Google Analytics.)

Regardless of the specific numbers, the award essays are wildly more popular than my average post. I try to enjoy the spike but not take personally the rise & subsequent fall.

As I said before, all of the credit goes to the author. All I do is recognize a good thing when I hear it.

Previous State of the Blog posts [list].

Thank you for reading,
