Somehow Chaotic’s Top 5 Posts

Even though it’s a brand new year, it’s still important to look back. Today, I’m looking back to my past blog posts to see which ones were the most popular.

It’s important to see what resonated with my readers as I prep my new posts for the year. So, without further ado, here are Somehow Chaotic’s Top 5 Posts:

  1. Top Ten Ways to Be the Worst Blogger – This one was a lot of fun to write because so frequently, I feel like I am a terrible blogger. I got a lot of comments and I really felt like I was writing in my voice. What can I learn from this? Lists are great. And when I get to be cheeky and sarcastic, I’m at my prime.
  2. Porn Review (From a Lady): Bob’s Boners – To be honest, I did not think this one would be anywhere near the top. This is a surprise. What can I learn from this? Apparently my feelings, as a lady, on porn are important.
  3. The Great Insta-Purge of 2014 – This post was a thinly veiled attempt to get more Instagram followers (by the way – I’m on Instagram). What can I learn from this? This was a pretty big event that I didn’t see a lot of coverage on, so I jumped on it. Maybe more current event posts would be beneficial.
  4. 5 Things to Ask Yourself Before Hitting Publish – Another post about how-to blogging. What can I learn from this? My little graph, as sad as it is, is a super helpful way. I think a lot of my hits from this post came from Pinterest – something I need to use more often.
  5. 5 Ways to Save Money in Your Coffee Cup – Another list to round out this list. I think I might have a problem. As a former barista, this post was incredibly easy for me to write. What can I learn from this? Lists are important in blogging. And popular.

There is a lot to take away from this – lists are great, graphics are important, and my voice seems to be more popular than I once thought.

  1. I have thrown around the idea of writing a post about being a terrible blogger, but I haven’t gotten around to it, because, well, I am a terrible blogger! I am new to your blog -probably because i read mom stuff, but i will have to check out a post or two here.

    1. Hi Heather,
      Yep, I just used Google Analytics to see which ones had the most views. It was super helpful and easy to check out.

  2. It’s always helpful and fun to check Google Analytics to see which posts are the most popular on your blog. The content that brings me the most traffic remains well-written, unique evergreen content that provides inspiration: http://www.confettiandbliss.com/inspire/how-to/spark-creativity/ And it’s these posts that I enjoy writing the most! Recipe posts with gorgeous photos remain a great way to bring in more page views. Recipe posts just keep on giving: http://www.confettiandbliss.com/inspire/food-cravings/garden-party-quiche-recipe/ Another type of post that’s really popular is the evergreen “How To” post: http://www.confettiandbliss.com/inspire/how-to/organize-and-declutter-your-space/ Kaileigh, thanks so much for sharing your blogging insights and which type of posts brought you the most traffic. It’s awesome when bloggers are willing to share their tips, because we can all learn so much from one another. When you help someone else grow, you grow too! 🙂
