Monday Metrics

image from by GDJ

If you are new, today is all about the numbers, not about my plans.   See the action plans I’m using to earn these numbers in previous posts.  My plan and reflects are on 16 Week Review!  and the steps I’m taking are on 6 Steps for Twitter.

Twitter Analytics

I’ve been active on Twitter for 141 days. In the last 28 days I’ve had 171 posts, 525 profile visits, 64 mentions, and 56 new follows.  

Conversion based on profile views is 11%.  A week off Twitter hit my metrics hard, but I needed the time.  

My engagement is 1.8%. Again, there were no posts from the 24th-1st.  I expect drops in all my metrics.

 post about 6 times a day.  My goal is to sit between 6-10 posts a day, so success!

I received views when I wasn’t posting, but they were under 1,000.  This past week, my daily view count is under 2,000 views a day.  I received 171 eyes per post last week. 

Blog Stats

I got 44 views last week spread across 10 posts and 4 pages.  Currently, I’m catching up on my blog work.  My scheduled posts went out without any photos, so I’ve been adding those.  I’m also adding the new posts to my “Best of Jess” page and I’m reading through pre-written posts I wasn’t sure I wanted to post.  

Three posts a week at this blog and a post at NAWG blog may be too much for me.

The North Alabama Writers’ Group blog has 31 views this past week.  Wish I could take credit for these views but it seems like people are stumbling across the blog and checking it out on their own.  I hope to see repeat traffic.

So talk to me!  What are your numbers?  What’s your social media strategy?  Are you counting anything else in your life and what does success look like?

Still need a number fix?  Compare this week to past weeks Dec 24thDec 17thDec 11th,  Dec 3rdNov 12thNov 5thOct 22nd, Oct 9thOct 1st Sept 24th, Sept17th, or Sept 10th.  


  1. Lovecraft was only posthumously recognized as one of the greatest. Numbers and marginal dude. Success isn't easily defined as it usually promotes contention.

    1. The numbers don't measure my success as a writer, no. They do help me get a handle on how big a current audience I'd have for my WIP. They may help direct my efforts in finding that audience as well, since I'll know if my efforts are working or not.

      That way maybe I won't have to be discovered post humorously. But I'll take any kind of discovery.

      Thanks for your comments and hope your strategy is going well.
