2019 Year in Review

The numbers are in for 2019. Overall, we saw a reduction in site traffic with views down by 26% from the prior year along with corresponding decreases in visitors, likes and comments. That being said, we did have the lowest year in terms of posts published so there may be some correlation.

  • Views: 2,511
  • Visitors: 1,521
  • Comments: 64
  • Posts published: 22

Top 3 posts (by total views)

It is interesting to note that the most views in 2019 were all hiking or trekking related posts! This means Dan’s views exceeded mine … I guess I should do more hiking. Our Albanian related posts still have the highest all time views.

  1.  Trekking in Leshan and Emeishan
  2.  Trekking Through the Borneo Rainforest
  3.  Jebel Qatar

Of our 22 posts published in the year, the top 3 viewed were Jack and Zack in Oman and the UAE, Team AD on a Swiss Road Trip, and another hiking related one Wadi Mistall Solo Hike. Our readership came mainly from the US, Canada, and the UAE. A shout out to our top commentors including Uncle Dale, Judy, and Barry & Carole.

We hope you are still enjoying reading our blogs as much as we enjoy writing them for you.
