I wrote fewer posts in 2019 (149 v. 123) versus the previous year but page visits and views both increased over 25% as older posts continued to perform well and some new content caught on. The drop in posts doesn’t mean I was writing less overall, just writing less on the blog. Turns out writing two books and blogging and doing all the associated indie author things takes up a lot of time. The blog has always been a personal hobby and I’ll continue to do it as long as it’s fun.
I started blogging (on and off) almost 15 years ago now and I like to think of this blog as a throwback to those early pre-blogger days where everyone’s site was sort of a distorted reflection of their personal interests. That’s still what I typically write about. Books, reading, baking, running, weekends with the kids. Turns out people mostly want help with cooking and recipes. Especially recipes from marathon-winning athletes.
