Well, Halloween has passed us once again. Given October is my most active month of blogging, I like to review how I faired in readership.
Overall, my monthly readership more than doubled with over 15,000 hits in October.
Here are my top-read posts for the month.
Half of my all-time most read posts were replaced with posts from this past month.
And here's where things go a little askew. The top country reading my blog was France, topping the United States by 1,400 hits. Now, either I've suddenly gained some sort of Jerry Lewis mystique, or something is fishy in Denmark...er...France.
I didn't gain any new followers, which was disappointing, but I don't know how much people "follow" bloggers any more. In fact, blogging as a whole continues to decline. Even the Countdown participation seemed off this year. With all the other social media options, I guess blogging just isn't "in" any more. Which I guess is as good a seque as any to announce I am on Facebook at facebook.com/garagesalefinds. If you're not on Facebook, no worries, you won't find any additional content there, just a springboard back to my blog. If you are on Facebook, how about giving me a "Like".
And that officially brings us to the end of the Halloween season. If you found me through the Countdown, I hope you'll stick around for Christmas and the rest of the year. If not, I'll see you next Halloween.
