Summary of my First Year!

Lab 10!

The Overall Summary of My Year!

What would I want to improve or include withing my site?

I would’ve liked to have been able to travel more this year so I could’ve produced more content. However, as a college student, I could only travel so much. I wish I would’ve tried to travel more or been a little more creative with blog ideas but I’ll know for next time!

How could I have better promoted my content?

I think it would’ve helped if I had more followers on twitter, however, I do not. If I had more followers on twitter, I could’ve gotten more traction through here. The next time I do this, I’ll try and add more hashtags or gain more followers beforehand!

What was my best experience of the semester-long project?

I think one of my favorite experiences throughout this semester-long project was just all the places I went. It got me out more than normal and I was able to get a taste of the blog life. I’ve always wanted to start a travel blog and this gave me a perfect excuse to do so!

In what ways could the experience benefit you in the future?

I think that these experienced benefited me because it makes me want to travel more. I was able to get a taste for traveling more and I think I’m addicted to it now. I think it will also help me with my writing in the future because I was able to learn a lot writing-wise during this project!

Discuss how I might implement these tool professionally in the future, in a job or an entrepreneurial endeavor.

This was a perfect start to a future job. I could keep this blog going and end up making a career out of it. If I don’t do that, I will be able to write on my resume that I’ve dabbled in writing blogs. This could help me with a social media career or for employers could have me run a website. This definitely gave me the basics I would need to start in one of those positions!

Analyzing my Data!

Which was my most popular week, and how many views and visitors did I get that week?

My most popular week was March 23, 2020 – March 29, 2020. I got a total of 22 views and 19 visitors!

Which was my most popular post of the semester? How many views did it get? Why do I think it was the most popular?

My most popular post this semester was “My Favorite Travel Blogger!” This post got 19 views. I believe this post got the most views because it was about a popular travel blogger, Nomadic Matt, and if you searched his name, you could’ve possibly stumbled upon mine.

In all of the Site Stats data, was anything surprising to you?

I thought it was surprising that I got so many views on my “My Favorite Travel Blogger!” post. I was not expecting 19 people to view it because I was getting about 8 viewers on average. This means that that one post more than doubled in views so that was definitely surprising to me!

Do I have any Twitter, Facebook or other social media stats I want to share?

I’m not sure how to really pull stats from Twitter but based off just what I observed, my most liked tweets were about my blog post. Most of my traffic on my Twitter came from my blog post tweets!
