Happy Anniversary, Undersquid!

It’s that time again…

I’ve now been blogging my size thoughts for ten years on WordPress (minus that time I was away). I’ve been blogging for longer than that, and I’ve been writing since I was a wee lass (I can say that because I’m two-percent Irish!), yet I feel last year I should have written much more than I did. In 2017 I wrote 100 blog entries, a ton of comments, and a few stories here and there. I need to write more, and I need to write more better.

Still, congratulations to me! And now it’s time for our fun-filled fact segment:

  • According to FlagCounter, my blog has surpassed a half a million views. I didn’t make note of the total number of views last year but did this time around.FlagCounterPageviews.jpgSure, a lot of those viewers are one-time visitors that back away slowly and never return, but plenty of you are still here and check in every once in a while to see what size smut I’ve posted recently.
  • Here’s a map of my last two hundred visitors. It shows what I’ve witnessed is a consistent concentration of interested readership.StatCounterVisitors.jpgThere are still fifty countries on Earth from where I’ve received no visitors. I’m still waiting for a sign the Pope reads my blog. Or someone, anyone in the Vatican.
  • My most read post is still GentleApril17: The Results!, with GentleApril17 a close second, and once again—as it was the case with my defunct blog—The Copacetic Cricket-Crush Connection rises to the top in third place… and gaining. Why? I wrote that blog entry thinking it was sad and funny, but you keep reading and rereading it. Do you hate crickets? Do you want them dead? Have you seen how cute crickets are? No, none of those are real questions. I know why y’all like that. I swore I was never going to write again about accidentally crushing a bug, but it doesn’t matter what I do. That blog entry seems to be enough.
  • The most viewed image is still Bored_at_the_movies.png. Interesting. I’ve abandoned my Pixton account. I had this fantastic idea for a comic… and I wrote a note about it… and then I forgot where I stashed the note. On a more positive note, I’m keeping notes, coming back to them later, and actually using them for stories. That’s a huge change from how I managed my writing before.
  • The search term my visitors use the most is “hug the undersquid”. I’m only referring to search terms my blog can detect since in most cases they are hidden by your browsers. The Quirky Award goes to “hog the indersquid”, and the most… peculiar one this year was “giantess mommy digesting her tiny son”. The one search term that makes me want to run off and write a story is this beauty:SearchTerm.png

Is that all she wrote? Yes, it is… for now.

    1. Just wanted to mention that my most viewed was ‘Summer of the Angry Birds’, from 2011. Last I checked it was in the thousands, no idea why. Maybe it was shared, or re-Facebooked, or something. Great to see that your contest got so much attention. ;)
