THE HEDON BLOG was featured on the national Online Journalism Blog recently, and in that article it was noted about 2013:
“Whilst not taking them too seriously, the blog has passed certain milestones this year i.e. half a million views, first time with over 2,500 views in one day (satisfying because in our first month of existence in Feb 2009 the blog got just 251 views), and the biggest hits to date on a particular article with over 4,000 on Hedon – Scene of Bomb Scare.
“For two months of this year views went over 25,000.
“However, I don’t take WordPress.com statistics too seriously, and still measure my own success by how much articles and issues are being talked about in the locality, on the blog, and on the site’s social media networks.” ¦ Ray Duffill
Actually, since the Online Journalism article was written, the Hedon Blog has experienced its largest monthly number of visits ever during November 2013 with over 34,000 views! Also this month, December, we experienced our most popularly shared article ever to date with over 7,000 views – and this result will surprise everyone (to be revealed next week).
We are going to have a review of some of our most popular items this year – including the bits that we liked writing – after Christmas and before New Year.
Meanwhile if you have any stories about things you’ve seen on the Blog during 2013 (or about things we’ve missed!), in fact if you have got any feedback at all about our blogging service for Hedon – then we’d love to hear – please leave a comment below.
And on this Christmas Eve we would like to wish all our readers a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and BEST WISHES FOR 2014. Thanks for your continued support!
Thank you also to our sponsors and advertisers over on HU12 Online – without whom we couldn’t pay our website bills!
