WordPress is excellent blog software. After a short learning period, I found many of its features to become second nature. I doubt my blogs would have become so much fun for me and the participants in the Year on the Road and the Year on the Road Again were it not so easy to use.
One of the fun features is the stats. I get to see how many hits for each post for each day. Also the total hits on each post over the last 30 or 90 days, the last year, or since day one. In the first days of a post, the hits are mostly from regulars. Over time however, people doing searches on key words add to the hit stats.
In the first year the most popular post was the one about the National Steinbeck Center (http://wp.me/P11rtv-4i); the second most popular, a set of pix of Sunrise at Amboy Crater (http://wp.me/P11rtv-d4).
In the second year, another blog moved to first place. And odd as it seems to me, it continues get several hits every day.
The sunrise blog is still in 2nd place with 1400+ hits. Steinbeck has dropped to 6th with over 1000 hits. But the new most-hit blog far out front with over 2200 hits is The Villages, the Dark Side. (http://wp.me/P11rtv-Jh)
Why is that?
