Grumpy Rumblings 2021 year in Blogging

Traffic is again a little up compared to last year.  Posts are down a bit (209 this year compared to 210(!)), and comments are also up.

These are the posts that got the most views in 2021:

Two of these are from 2021 (Last year none of them were from 2020!) and, of course, the #1 post is still from students trying to plagiarize a really common composition assignment. We have cornered the market on plagiarizing a short essay about a relative’s wedding.

According to our stats, here’s the most popular posts from 2021:

  • I am not ok
  • Why I don’t want to list my pronouns
  • RBOC from March 1, 2021 (I think this is a first for an RBOC)  This one has a lot of complaining that is also in I am not ok above.  People like complaining!
  • Link Love from Jan 2, 2021 (I think this is a first for a Link Love).  See above comment about people loving complaining.
  • DH’s Delta Trainer/Co-Pilot Review  (DH is still going strong with this and would 100% recommend if you want to get into shape and have time to do so– if there is interest, I can do a post updating.)

Top referring sites were (no change from last year!):

Most visitors came from The United States. Canada & the UK came next.

Our most commented post was Why I don’t want to list my pronouns (note to self for next year:  this stat is now hidden under “insights” and is no longer on site stats) (Thank you previous self!  Also, self next year, it’s been further hidden in the comments part– you have to change to comments by posts and pages where it says comments by authors) (Thank you previous self!)

I can’t get the most active commenters for the year, only for some undetermined amount of time. :( These were the 5 most active commenters on that unspecified amount of time:

1.  Revanche@agaishanlife 60
2.  Debbie M 36
3.  First Gen American 30
4.  Three way tie for 4th:  mnitabach, omdg, Matthew D. Healy 27

Yay Revanche!  This means you get to tell us where to donate our most recent month’s proceeds from amazon sales.  Either tell us and link up in the comments (if you want more exposure) or email us at grumpyrumblings at gmail if you want it to be more secret-like.

Any blog commentary or highlights from the grumpy gallery?  Also, congratulate Revanche in the comments.  :)

    I love reading revanche’s comments too. Congrats on adding to the ambiance of the blog with your thoughtful commentary.

    I always love reading through all your comments. Your readers are great at supplementing the discussion with their own diverse and interesting takes on things and happy you promote it here.

    I’m another devoted reader, even if I don’t comment much these days. Thank you for keeping Grumpy Nation going!

    Was prompted to wander over here this morning after seeing this interesting site — https://covidactuaries.org/ — and thought others here might be interested (the Friday Reports — see categories tab — look useful).

  7. Revanche @ A Gai Shan Life Says:

    Yesterday was a doozy of a day, so I kept thinking over where I’d like to see this go. There are so many places that could use the money! I think We Need Diverse Books would be a great place for it this year: https://diversebooks.org/. Or Yellowhammer Abortion Funds. I’m torn. Split? You pick?

  8. teresa Says:

    This is one of the few places where I always read all the comments. Really appreciate the range of perspectives. So thanks to you for writing and everyone else for commenting!

    If you awarded the person who thought of the most comments but did not type them out, I would win!

    Just saw this & LOLZ “three-way tie for fourth” is pretty much the story of my entire life!!! 😹 😹 😹

    […] you recall, Revanche of A Gai Shan Life won this year’s most commenting award again!  For her prize she got to choose a charity for us to donate […]
