The email below is the text of an email sent to me by WordPress in early January. Their comments in black, mine in orange italics!
A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 5,600 times in 2010. That's about 13 full 747s. [or about 1/10th of the inhabitants of a beehive... not quite as sexy sounding]
In 2010, there were 65 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 67 posts. There were 154 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 161mb. That's about 3 pictures per week.
The busiest day of the year was November 10th with 395 views. The most popular post that day was Now THAT'S a thank you note....
The part I found most fascinating was the following...

So how fascinating is that? Out of all the revealing, heartfelt, witty, intelligent, insightful things (!!) that I wrote last year, the one that was viewed the most was about a thank you letter (sent to a customer who gave a gift of Queen B candles). Being someone who loves to analyse things (and wanting a full beehive complement of blog viewers in 2011!), I pondered why? Is it that everyone loves a bit of good news? Do Queen B blog readers have a latent fear that they don't say thank you enough and want some tips?!
Penny for your thoughts...
- what do you enjoy reading on the blog
- what would you like to see more or less of?
- is doing a blog worthwhile, or should I reclaim my life and just focus on making beautiful beeswax candles?
The best/most helpful/insightful response (as judged by me!) will receive a selection of Queen B candles (as chosen by me!) to the value of $200. Winner announced on Friday, 18th February 2011.
Queen B beeswax candles are made with 100% pure Australian beeswax a pure cotton wick and copious amounts of hand made love. We stock beautiful and stylish candle holders, personalised candles, votive candles and pillar candles that nourish the human spirit and our environment.
