Blogging in 2020

A photo collage from blogging in 2020

Firstly, I would like to say well done to all the bloggers who uploaded content this year. I, at times, found it challenging to motivate myself to blog about our experiences. I even had a moment of wanting to give up being a blogger.

In December, I managed to regain my spark, followed by some optimism to continue blogging.

Blogging Statistics and Insights

In terms of traffic to my blog (people visiting my website), in January and February, I secured 1,907 views. Afterwards, there was a dip in views, until July and August (the summer months).

The activity then seemed to settle. I had traffic to my site, but not as much as the summer months. I lost my blogger’s mojo around this point, and to be fair to myself, I had a SEND tribunal hearing too so was occupied.

Then out of nowhere, the traffic increased in December at 1,042 views.

The most popular posts in 2020 from the content I wrote in previous years are listed below:

Blogging in 2020 Final Thoughts

The plan for next year is anything we cannot do outdoors; we will create indoors. (It is all about creativity).

What I acknowledge about myself as an individual, is that I do overthink. My new approach for my blog in 2021 is to try to do less explaining and more doing. It is time to have the fun side of me back!

I shall finish this blog by saying a Happy New Year to you all, and best wishes for 2021!
