Well, it’s hard to believe it’s been a year since I started blogging. I’ve really enjoyed it.
I’ve written 178 posts in 12 months, which I feel is a healthy but manageable pace. Most important, it has not felt like work. My family reads my blog regularly, and they’re the reason why I started blogging in the first place.
Also, I took a quick look at Google Analytics (screen shot below) to get a better sense for audience measurement. I was surprised that over 26,000 people have visited the site, and that generated over 52,000 page views. That’s a lot more than I would have expected.
I was also surprised by how many repeat visits the site gets, with 28% of visits come from returning visitors:
I also looked at which posts generated the most traffic:
- I list below the Top 10 most popular pages (#2 is the home page)
- The posts on how VCs pay themselves and structure power within their firms have been the most viewed. In particular, “How Are VCs Paid?” generated the most traffic and that single post generated 32% of all the page views on the site. Coming in second was “VC Economics and Control Unveiled”
- Surprisingly, also in the Top 10 was a post on “Why You Shouldn’t be an EIR at a VC Firm”
It’s pretty cool what you can track with a free tool like Google Analytics.
Last, I really appreciate all the encouragement from you all regarding my blog posts. I write about a lot of personal stuff, in addition to the usual VC-blog posts about start-ups and innovation, and so, your feedback has meant a lot to me. Thank you!
