While I try not to obsess too much over how many hits I get on my site, I do like to peek at the stats my web host provides every month of so. I check a couple of things, primarily: where people are coming from, and what search terms they’ve used to land on my site. I like to know the first just to get an idea of who out there might be linking to me. I like to know the second just because it’s entertaining. Here’s a few of my favorite search terms from February:
hopeful: 13 hits, the highest single term. Interesting, I think it must be leading to when I first posted this photo to my blog (at its old address), back in August 2008.
variations of my name (stace, staci, dumoski, in various combinations) or the url (www.dumoski.com): 17 total
creative journaling or art journaling, with our without orange county: 7 total
searches including the word “artifacts“: 4 total
And a few random one-offs:
more than anything else lesson plan
prismacolor watercolor pencils
t shirts that say what’s your story (hmm….new product idea!)
creative lettering examples
stories of inspiration facing change
I just love that last one, don’t you? I hope whoever it was found what they were looking for.
