Good morning! I can’t believe its Monday again, what happened to the weekend? As always, I hope that everyone managed to make the most of the weather and had relaxing couple of days. How amazing was the football?
Anyway, I’ve got something a little different today; a look at my top five blog posts. I got the inspiration for this post from one of my favourite bloggers; Alana.
In order to find out my top five posts, I delved into my all-time stats. My most popular couple of posts were quite predictable; the rest, a little surprising.
This post has received five times as many views as any other post I’ve written. I personally don’t think that it’s one of my best posts. I wouldn’t even put it in my Top 20.
The post was published back in 2016 and is still read by 100+ people a day. Rubbish stats for most bloggers but pretty amazing stats for my small corner of the internet.
I published this post the month before the 2017 London Marathon and made slightly more effort than usual to promote it on social media. Predictably, this post was really popular in the lead up to the 2018 London and Brighton Marathons. I’m guessing it will be popular again next March and April as nervous marathon runners get Googling.
This is another example of a not very good blog post that for some reason gets a lot of views. I can only assume that quite a few runners struggle to reach their London Marathon fundraising targets. I most definitely did!
This is by far and away my most popular ‘product review’ post. I’ve written what I think are far, far more interesting product reviews but I guess that at the end of the day, it’s all about the product.
Or perhaps people just like this rather dodgy photo of me trying to avoid throwing up after a challenging training session? I’ve still got no idea why I included it in the FLEXISEQ post.
And finally, in fifth place is a review post I published last summer. Thriva are constantly promoting their products on social media. Although I did very little to promote this post, I think that it’s popular because people like to read unbiased reviews before taking out expensive subscriptions. Well that’s my theory.
If you’ve reached the end of this somewhat self-indulgent post then thanks. At some stage, I might take a look at my bottom five posts. It will be interesting to see which posts ‘flopped’ and are now gathering dust inside my blog.
I’m quite nosey so I’d love other bloggers to share similar posts. Please get writing!
