Today, with the Laravel 6 announcement the Laravel News site had the single best day according to WordPress stats. It’s fun to see these things even though I rarely look too deeply into stats. Usually I’ll check the month over month stats, or the year trend lines and I like to see them going up, but I’m not to concerned about the day to day traffic.
What I do find funny is in one day that site probably got more traffic than I get here in a month. It makes sense because I tend to just ramble on here and share whatever is on my mind that day, where that site has a true focus and purpose.
If you are getting started with a new site keep it focused on the main topic and eventually the traffic should start coming in, but if you are blogging for yourself and to share with the world just ignore stats. Show up and write, who cares.
