Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. This has been a very painful week for me, My Dear Shoevians. Heck, I am always in pain, in my neck or back, down my arms into my hands, or the back of my head into my cervical spine. The last neurosurgeon I saw told me, pint blank, “Mr. Hanning, you will be in pain for the rest of your life. I cannot do anything about that, and any neurosurgeon that tells you they can… you should run away fast!”

.

I am extremely fortunate that I have Dr. Laurence Gorlick as my primary care physician and internal medicine doctor. He keeps me supplied in pain medications, and every few years increases the dosage or changes the medication. Without him, and his assistance with my pain, I am not sure I would still be alive. Nevertheless, it is because of this pain that I have not been writing and publishing, this week, as much as I want… or have managed since the re-launch of this blog.

.

However, there is ‘Good News’ on two fronts. One, I am feeling a little better and have pulled my laptop near to my bed and am working on a couple of articles for this week, this one included. Second, I should be ready to announce the expansion of The Other Shoe! As I write this article I am working to upload my article base to another blog location at Blogspot! The addy will be www.theothersshoe.blogspot.com Once it is up and running, I will post an introductory article at my existing blog locations.

.

Now that I have the news out of the way, let me get to the meat of this article. As many of you, My Dear Shoevians, know about every six months I publish a ‘Traffic Report’. Now, I do this for many reasons, not the least of which is that I enjoy sharing the limited success of my writing. Yes, I work hard at; research, writing, editing and publishing at The Other Shoe. When I see the traffic counter on the Blog Dot com location stay over one hundred for a week or more… YES I am very very proud! That has occurred over the past two weeks.

.

Yesterday, Tuesday May 6th, 2015 the counter showed 113, today it showed 109. Unfortunately, I did not get a screenshot of the page with the counter in the 100’s. Now, I am trying to get the page up… and of course there is a problem my blog location at blog dot com loading. This has occurred every since I started this blog location, it is the oldest and my first location for The Other Shoe. When ever my traffic gets to around 100 a week, or more, the blog goes dead. I fear it is because it is a free blog webs server, and when traffic gets rather high they choke the server to my blog. This was the very reason I started the secondary location at Word Press.

.

You know what, though? The funniest thing happened when I started the second blog location. I attracted an all new group of readers! The Other Shoe at Word Press has SIXTY individuals that read my work just at the Word Press location! This adds to my overall traffic, and is the reason behind me adding the all new location at Blogspot. I aspire to be a published author. A novelist, hopefully. The way I look at it is like this; if I walk in to a publisher’s office with a well written, and edited, novel and show that I have hundreds, if not thousands, of people reading my blog writing each and every month? That greatly increases my chances they will pay attention to my work, and me!

.

Enough of everything else, and on with this years Traffic Report! I am very proud to share the results for this past month, and the past year, for both blog locations. If you are one of my long time readers, then you will know that I usually have traffic number for one of my blog locations, at Blog Dot Com. Today, I am thrilled to be able to share traffic numbers for both my Blog Dot Com and Word Press locations! So, when you are looking at these images with the numbers showing, remember to add the numbers from both sites to get a better idea just how big the community is you blong to My Dear Shoevians!

.

Below is the very first image of this traffic report. It shows the traffic to The Other Shoe at Blog Dot Com, which I will refer to as Number One Blog hereafter. Number Two Blog will be the location at Word Press. The first several image will all relate to traffic at Number One Blog. In this first image we can see that over the past thirty days I had; 314 unique visitors, with 435 sessions and 683 page views. That means that, in the past thirty days, I have averaged ten unique visitors a day, that they have read about two pages, each, and have about 121 people that came back for another visit.

Now, I am sure that most of my readers here in America (and Texas) imagine that all of my readers are in America and/or Texas. If only this were true, it would be much easier to write for this blog. Nope my blog(s), both, have an international readership! This blog is read in; America, England, Italy, the Netherlands, Australia, and Russia just to name a few. The image, directly below, is a color map showing readership as shades of blue. The darker the blue, the more readers.

289- America, 19 United Kingdom, 15 Canada, 11 India, 10 the Netherlands, 10 Germany, 5 for Australia Poland and Russia… in one month! Man, the very first time I looked at the international numbers at Google Analytics? I about fell out of my chair! To understand/realize that my work is read in; England, Germany, France, Russia, and the Netherlands! Just bows me away! I am so very flattered that My Dear Shoevians span the globe! Thank you my foreign readers… THANK YOU!

.

Now, all of the images and numbers, above, are for the month from April 6th, 2015 to May 7th, 2015. However, one month at any given time does not really give us an accurate view of my readership. Therefore, the next several images and numbers are for the time period between April 6th, 2014 to May 7th, 2015, one year. Now, My Dear Shoevians, I would like everyone to keep in mind that during this time period I was (for all intents and purposes) down during my chemotherapy and for a couple of months afterward. So, that means that these numbers represent about six months of actual publication.

.

First, the image below shows all traffic to the Number One Blog for one year.

You can clearly see the flat-line from October 2014 until February 2015. This is my chemotherapy and recovery time. What I wouldn’t have given for another writer… I asked a few people I know and respect their work. I understand and accept that they were unable to help. Below, is the same information dump, but this time it is all in numbers.

*Sigh* This shows that, over the past year, Number One Blog has been visited 3,550 times by 2,303 readers viewing 5,367 pages. Depressingly this is way down from my 2013-2014 yearly stats. As I remember, the last time, I saw over 4,500 visitors with 5,600 sessions and over 7,000 page views. I knew when I went into chemotherapy, that there would be a loss of readership. However, I do not think I could ever be prepared for these statistics. I know that there are a lot of you, My Dear Shoevians, that are very happy to be a part of this large a readership.

.

I am very happy to provide reading material and images and political and social editorials. I am very proud to have the readership that I see above. I apologize… it was just depressing, for me. I will run this article, again, in October of this year. I know that the numbers will be much better then, and when I publish it again in May of next year.

.

Now we have finished the traffic reports for The Other Shoe at Blog Dot Com (aka Number One Blog). For the rest of this article I will present the traffic reports for the Number Two Blog, which is The Other Shoe at Word Press. This blog location has only been around for the past three years. Three years out of the four that the primary blog location has been up and running. As I explained, above, I started the Number Two Blog due to the frequent problems with Number One Blog crashing (as it is right now as I write this article). However, when I started publishing at Word Press a wonderful thing happened. I gained an all-new readership! I am thrilled that I now have two readerships one for each of the blog locations.

.

Due to the problems at the primary blog location, this article will likely only appear at the Word Press location, initially. I apologize to all my regular readers at Blog Dot Com, but there is nothing I can do when the primary blog location is crashing, as it is right now.The first image, below, shows the taffic for one month at the Number Two Blog.

The graphic shows that, over the past thirty days, this location has seen; 252 unique readers that have engaged in 252 sessions and read 376 pages of content. Compared to the primary location having: 314 unique readers that have engaged in 435 sessions reading 685 pages. The next image shows international readers for the same one month period of time.

This shows that visitors break down as: 132 = America, 9 = China, 7 = Japan, 6 = the Netherlands, 5 = Germany & Russia. Hummm, at both blogs Germany has FIVE unique visitors. That is pretty darn interesting. Nest image is a map showing the distribution of readers. The darker the blue color, the more readers in that country.

This shows that The Other Shoe at Word Press has enjoyed; 596 unique readers with 629 sessions reading 754 pages of content. My Dear Shoevians this gives us are total, between the two locations, of; 2,899 readers with 4,179 sessions reading 6,121 pages read.

The above featured graphic shows international numbers for the Number Two Blog. This shows a breakdown of readers as; 214 American, 37 = China, 37 = Russia, 19 Japan, and 11 South Korea. I know each and every time I look at these numbers… these international numbers I am just blown away! That, in one year, nearly two hundred people in England read my blog!@ Now, all I want to do is to increase these international numbers, and increase the number of people all around the world that read my work. That would be awesome!

.

Now, My Dear Shoevians, for the final image of this article and the final statistic from the traffic reports. This image shows the number of “Active” readers at the primary blog location. The top line in for the past thirty days, and the bottom line shows just the last day.

.

.

At the highest point, April 26th2015, there were 460 (in one month) active readers and only 14 in one day. Fourteen in one day is nothing to hang your head in shame. That would equal 98 a week, roughly 400 a month and 4,800 a year! That is a good showing! Why I included this, was to show just how much the traffic has dropped, sue to my absence for my chemotherapy. Now that is behind me, I am hoping that I can keep up my weekly publishing schedule of 4-7 articles a week.

.

That about sums it up for this edition of Traffic Reports for The Other Shoe(s). I am hoping to awake, tomorrow (Friday May 8th) with much less pain and deliver a (late but better than not) edition of Lost in Space’. You can look forward to ‘A Week in Review’ this Saturday and on Sunday an all new edition of ‘Sunday Funnies’!

.

Finally, “Thank you!” to all my domestic and international readers. I am moved by your readership and flattered by your loyalty to my work.

.

Thank you!

.

Adieu!
