Well, ‘Stay the Course‘ as much as possible amongst ‘Constant Change‘ ‘n whilst always Under Construction! 🙂 Technology changes faster every day ‘n it seems that my ‘Opinions‘ on this blog are always trying to catch up wid the changes.
MNSKY ‘n the ‘Experimental‘ Political Blog
Started this Linux Newbie – since 1996 blog on January 6, 2019 wid this post – PART I .. Under Construction. Had a total of 2,631 views for the entire year. Didn’t really think much of those numbers one way or the other, since I had never gotten many views on another blog that I had started in 2004. That political blog was put on hold last year, wid a total of 65,614 views over 17 years, and then I started an experimental political blog. The Big Brother Report blog uses the Independent Publisher 2 theme:
Independent Publisher 2 is a clean and polished theme with a light color scheme, bold typography, and full-width images. It’s designed to enhance your content and provide an immersive experience for your readers. With a focus on readability, the content looks crisp and easy on the eyes. Independent Publisher 2 is responsive, adjusting its layout to accommodate various devices and screen sizes.
All the themes may adjust for tablets, phones, and laptops, but that is one of the reasons for the experimental blog, i.e., to see how a political blog does wid a more modern look.
The experimental blog isn’t doing great, viewer-wise, wid just 626 views (wid 80 posts) in almost a year, but it does allow me to keep Linux (Karmi) & Politics (MNSKY) as separate as possible here on the Linux Newbie blog…so to speak. MNSKY (my Political side) runs the Big Brother Report blog, but also posts here at the Linux Newbie. MNSKY has 735 views of his posts here, i.e., just 35 posts. 😉
As mentioned earlier, the Linux Newbie – since 1996 blog had just 2,631 views in 2019. It had 28,604 views in 2020 (19,410 views were referred by Search Engines), and 27,115 views in 2021 (18,551 views were referred by Search Engines).
After 5-digit referrals by Search Engines it drops to a very small group of 3-digit referrers wid the WordPress Android App leading that small group (usually 4 wid the other 3 changing).
With the rest of October, plus November & December left in this year, the Linux Newbie – since 1996 blog is at 21,650+ views for 2022.
Google Search & Google Translate
Google Search is obviously a major force for driving viewers to my blog. Started watching my blog stats closely about 18-months ago, when I upgraded it to the Business plan. The United States has provided 19,549+ All Time views. 15 other countries each provided 4-digit views. Over 200 other countries have viewed posts on Linux Newbie – since 1996 blog. Google Translate gets credit for so many foreign visitors.
Conclusion – ‘Stay the Course!‘
I’ve learned more about Linux since starting this blog (almost 4-years ago) than I had during all those previous 22+-years combined. Blogging is certainly an ongoing learning experience for bloggers!
Will certainly continue to include Windows users when planning a post, even tho very few are interested.
Other than that, this blog is always:
People Worldwide are interested in Linux, but the Topic of Linux isn’t that much in demand, hence many of my posts make it to Google’s “First Page” at some point. The Nobara Linux 36 post made it to Googles “First Page” quicker than any other of my posts. That post was written on September 19, 2022, has just 153 views, but still made it to that “First Page,” and I didn’t pay Google a penny to do it. 😉
Some quick stats:
- There are roughly 6+ million blog posts published daily.
- 60% of internet users read blogs.
- WordPress blogs get over 20 billion page views every month.
- A total of 5.03 billion people around the world use the internet today – equivalent to 63.1 percent of the world’s total population.
- Point is – 80,000+ views ain’t squat! 🙂
Will add this post to the Progressions of the Linux Newbie Blog page…
LINUX IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES – you never know what you’re gonna get!
