I always love this time of year and the opportunity it gives me to reflect on the whole year. This is my ninth year of blogging and I’m still learning all the time. I do keep an eye on my blog stats regularly so I tend to know what people are reading but it’s always fun to see what the top 10 is and share it with you. It also helps me to figure out what everyone wants to know and what I should be writing more about.
It’s important to know that by far the hugest source of people coming to my blog come to it via search engines. They ‘google’ a question or a few words and my blog post is one of the options that comes up. A small minority come from Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (X). Then it’s readers referred by other organisations who have shared my work such as Women’s Running Magazine, Scottish Athletics and Netdoctor.
Thank you so much if you have been a reader this year. I genuinely mean that! I’m always open to hearing what you would like me to write about so never hesitate to get in touch.
