It’s been a good year for this little blog of mine.
I only started tracking visitors from the 6th August 2017, so I can only compare growth from the second half of the year, but the signs are positive. Over 140% user growth year-on-year.
The absolute number of visitors are still small in the big scheme of things, but over the last year I have worked at improving it and it is now growing steadily.
If I compare the second half of 2018 year to the first half, the change is less dramatic but still positive.
To try to get the bounce rate down, I’ve added WordPress’ Jetpack to take advantage of their related posts feature.
Instagram is also growing steadily. I started the year with about 220 followers and by the end of the year I was at about 290, which is around 32% growth.
I’m still a long way from where I want to be, though—I’m working on Instagram becoming one of my main marketing platforms as I get closer to releasing a game and would like to get these numbers up in to the four digits.
There are a lot of amazing artists on Instagram and so far I have found the artist community to be positive and supportive. It tends to avoid a lot of the more troubling aspects of the platform and remains a nicer place to hang out than Twitter.
