How Many People Have Been Checking You Out?

So I have been absent from AR for a couple of days.  I guess it was a busy weekend.  So today I saw a post from Kathy Streib from Friday.  Of course the title caught my eye,  Friday Fun ... Who Was Your First.  Be sure to check it out.  She always has great posts.

So I checked out who my first was.  Turns out my first post was 11.20.2007 and it was even entitled "My very first ever blog Post"  It wasn't great, it was just basically an My Very First Ever Blog Postintroduction from me to the AR world.  The first person to comment on any of my blog posts was on that post and it was Thomas Weiss.  Unfortunately it turns out he hasn't been active here on AR since December of 2007.    I did receive a total of 8 comments on that post.  I thought that was pretty big time back then.  Over the years it has been viewed 1760 times.

That got me to thinking.  Which of my posts has gotten the most views.  You can check this out by going to your "Stats".  When that page pops up  then click on "Views" at the top of the chart.  That will sort your posts by number of views. 

I wrote my most viewed post on 3.5.2008.  It was titled "Turlock California Agriculture".  It was about some of the products grown and produced here in the Turlock Ca Almond OrchardCentral Valley of California in and around my hometown of Turlock Ca.  That post has now been viewed 14,364 times.  What's even more incredible to me than the number of views is the number of comments on that post.  That post with all those views has a grand total of 0 comments. 

I guess lots of people have taken a peak at the post over the last 13 plus years but none have been compelled to say anything about it.  That's ok though, I hope most of the people stopping by enjoyed the "View". 

So what's your most viewed post?   I'm guessing there are some of you ActiveRain superstars that have posts that have been viewed a lot more than my most viewed.  I can't wait to here some of those numbers!

Hello Jim - viewing ActiveRain stats can definitely be the start of a rabbit hole adventure.  In the past, I have "gone" there and made all sorts of discoveries.  Some of them memorable for multiple reasons and others just nostalgic to get a pulse on what was happening in this world as well as the bigger globe.

Top of the morning Jim.  I seldom comment on outside blog posts or reports.  I do so in AR as it being part of the culture and community.  'Getting to know people'.  That is pretty amazing though...0 comments on over 14K views.  Make the rest of your week productive.  Mark

That's a lot of views Joan Cox.  I read the post it was very good.  I guess to get the views I need to write more about beer and less about real estate.

Thanks for sharing the interesting statistics for your first ActiveRain blog post.

I did not receive many comments in the early days of blogging.

Hi Roy Kelley while you may not have gotten a lot of comments early on I bet you got a lot of views of your beautiful photography.
