ILMK’s WordPress stats for 2014

ILMK’s WordPress stats for 2014

Thank you all again for a wonderful year (which still has a couple of days left)!

I’ll be doing my year in e-books soon, but WordPress did send me the annual report for the I Love My Kindle blog. They do a fun job with that, and I wanted to go ahead and share some of the facts with you. You should be able to see the report here:

https://ilmk.wordpress.com/2014/annual-report/

although I’m going to use the site’s private stats to go deeper.

ILMK was visited about 430,000 times in 2014. I added on average of more than a post a day (392), bringing the total to 2,643. I try to average 1,000 words a day, and I think that might be an underestimate. If that was the case, and using the old standard of 250 per pages, that would be the equivalent of a 1,568 page book in 2014.

The top five viewed posts in 2014 were:

  1. Got a new Kindle? Here’s the most important thing to know (from 2011)
  2. The reading experience: Paperwhite vs. Kindle Fire HDX
  3. You can now reset your Kindle password yourself (from 2011)
  4. Parental controls and your Kindle (from 2012)
  5. Why I don’t use Amazon’s Silk browser (from 2013)

While the posts are certainly the bulk of the blog, I want to acknowledge everyone who has taken the time and made the effort to comment. I always appreciate the kind words, thoughtful insights, field reports, and especially, respectful disagreements!🙂 The commenters who participated the most were:

  1. Lady Galaxy
  2. Edward Boyhan
  3. Tom Semple
  4. Zebras
  5. Harold Delk

Thanks, commenters! The blog wouldn’t be the same without  you.

This next one is one of my favorite stats: how many visitors I had from different countries…although I do have to say, it doesn’t look like I can copy and paste this year, so over 200 (!) countries is going to be a lot of typing! Here we go:

Thanks, world!🙂 I think it’s especially cool that I get views from countries to which Kindles and Kindle content can’t even be shipped. That might be people traveling, I guess, or just interested parties, maybe hoping for the day everything gets worked out and they can get Kindle books where they live.

One last stat of a different kind: my customers’ purchases appear to have resulted in over a thousand dollars in donations through AmazonSmile* in 2014! Doesn’t it feel great to have helped out ike that?🙂

Join over a thousand readers and try the free ILMK magazine at Flipboard!

* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. :) Shop ’til you help! :)
