When I have nothing to do (and sometimes also when I have plenty to do, and am not doing any of it :P, such as now), I look a lot at the stats on my blog; how many views I’ve got, which posts readers and fellow-bloggers seem to like most, the countries from which people are reading my posts, etc. So, today I thought, just for a bit of fun, I will share the ones on my blog people haven’t viewed/read so much: Not for any serious reasons but just for fun. Every week, I do try to put up two posts besides the weekly Bookquote that I share every Monday (today’s from Rosemary Sutcliff, who I’ve been featuring all month is here), and Shelf Control which appears every Wednesday, and which features a book from my TBR pile which is waiting to be read (feature from Lisa at Bookshelf Fantasies). In this list, I’m not including any of these, nor wrap ups which I used to do earlier but have stopped lately.

So far on my blog, including the initial years that I opened it up but barely put up two posts a year, I have 437 posts including quotes and shelf control.

And my list:

  • My review of Gerinomo Stilton: Lost Treasure of the Emerald Eye: April 2018 (here): I’d been seeing these books so often but had never read them; then came across a couple on NetGalley and picked them up for review!
  • Review of Edward Eager’s Half Magic: June 2017 (here): This I think was me experimenting with Goodreads’ share to you blog feature, so it doesn’t even have a proper title.
  • Anna Sewell: Champion of Horses: 30 March 2020 (here): A short post about Sewell on the occasion of her 100th birthday,earlier this year.
  • Findouters’ Challenge: Fatty the Ventriloquist: 30 December 2017 (here): Review of The Mystery of the Strange Bundle: part of my ‘challenge’ revisiting all the Five Findouters books in order.
  • Crito, Emma and Some Perspectives on the Social Contract: 27 April 2018 (here): This one I like very much; from an intro I by Peter Conrad read fitting Emma by Jane Austen into Rousseau’s social contract framework; Crito, Plato’s dialogue on the same theme and how the same is part of our daily lives.
  • Bookreview: Zarathustra: 10 December 2019 (here): Book review of a graphic novel telling the first part of the story of Zarathustra or Zoroaster.
  • My review of Turtles All the Way Down by John Green: 13 August 2018 (here)
  • My review of Illusion by Stephanie Elmas: 29 July 2018 (here): an interesting tale of magic set in Victorian England combining both harsh real life and magic.
  • My list of History of Science favourites: 30 January 2020 (here): Another of my favourites since I love this genre a lot.
  • Review of The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert: 8 March 2018 (here): This was I think my first ‘approval’ from NetGalley.

So, this is it, my ten least viewed posts!!! A couple on that list, I would have liked to get more views on but the rest, I don’t really know! Anyway, this exercise was meant for fun and nothing more!

Do you enjoy looking at your blog stats? Just basic view information and comments or the other stuff too, like the country stats? Looking forward to your thoughts!

  1. I too do like seeing my blog stats (especially comparing total bona fide comments with spam comments!) and, like you, seeing which ones didn’t register so highly even though I was reasonably proud of them. (Like my recent Virginia Woolf post which *nobody*has commented on though I thought would attract interest from her fans, at least!)

    But I like the sound of some of these posts, so I’m going to potter off and probably up your stats on them! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Ha ha–thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, I’d say, it does sometimes happen that in the ‘bombardment’ of updates ones gets every day, some things are missed, especially since my email (at least) sometimes randomly classifies some things as spam.

      I must confess, I didn’t see the Woolf post at all–will go check it out, I like some of her writings, and other things have hard my head in a whirl.

      1. Exactly–I think it was thoughts running around in my mind then and I guess I must have wanted to put it out there. But I feel like I can make it an essay; will probably do that.
        Interesting how sharing these has ended up giving me food for thought as well ๐Ÿ™‚
