November 20: Weblog Birthday, Six Years
November 20, 2015
This blog became public six years ago today. I had been writing in secret for a while, trying to get the hang of WordPress, before first hitting the Publish Public setting. To celebrate, I’m posting photos of work done by each member of my little family, and pointing out my most visited pages.
The images on my blog that have gotten the most clicks are:
How to Make an Origami Pamphlet : 3750 clicks. My number one favorite book to makes has the most clicks. This elegant little structure is known also know as a zine, hot dog booklet, eight page pamphlet as well as by many other names.
Origami Pocket Tutorial: 3647 clicks. This is slightly different from an origami cup because it is sized to hold a little book.
Modified Pamphlet Stitch Booklet: 3006 clicks. A good structure to make when needle and thread seems too cumbersome.
How to Make a Six-Sided Snowflake from a Paper Napkin: 2859 clicks. I made this image quickly one evening after trying to explain how to do this on the phone to my good friend Cynthia in Minnesota. There are so many tutorials on how to make a snowflake that I never thought mine would rise to the towards the top of google search results, but it has!
My most visited posts are:
‘Tis the Season to Make Paper Snowflakes 34,689 visitors. These views are mostly seasonal.
Elementary Nature Printing 17,198 visitors. I think it’s Pinterest that drives views to this page.
How to Make a Paper Spring 14,164 visitors. There’s not much competition on search engines for this structure. Even so, I think that the tutorial page on this post is one of my best and I doubt anyone will make one that’s better. Blush.
How to Make an Origami Pamphlet 13,674 visitors. This post, by the way, was published 10 days shy of six years ago. Nearly everyday this post is visited. Yesterday it got 16 views.
So, that’s it, my six-year wrap up. Next year maybe I will write about my own favorite posts. Thanks for visiting. It means the world to me to know you’ve stopped by.
