I’ve reached a milestone on this blog: 50,000 page views! I know it’s a tiny drop in the Internet bucket, but I never thought I’d still be going strong 53 months after the first post in May 2014. Thanks to all who have found and managed to enjoy my blog! After the home page, the most-read page on this blog is my review of the horrible flick “CHIPS.” Hmmmm …
Officially, my blog, called “A Gator in Naples,” hit 50,000 late in the late night of Nov. 2, 2018, and went to 50,001 between midnight and 3 a.m. on Nov. 3.
As you can tell at a glance, there are two key components to the blog: My movie reviews and photos we’ve taken at Walt Disney World. The final in my daily trio of posts is one that might be from my hometown of Naples, Fla., or elsewhere as time and circumstance have taken us (such as to University of Florida football games or Florida Panthers ice hockey matches).
My favorite photographic subjects are, in no particular order: Sunrises/sunsets, contrails, helicopters and cranes. As to my writing, I’ve done the most with movie reviews, especially about films from the late 1970s and 1980s.
I’ve written 329 reviews of films (the first I posted was for “The Warriors” on May 22, 2014, and it was my first post on this blog). I’ve also written 31 other reviews about different subjects from TV series (my favorite is “The Love Boat”) to film versions of my favorite books. Click here for my page with links to all my movie and TV reviews. I’ve also written commentary about subjects from hurricane seasons to my look this year at each error on a daily desk calendar (as of Nov. 3, the calendar has put out error of facts on 51 days this year because of a stupid writer and an incompetent or no editor).
As to the numbers from my blog, they’re modestly interesting. After the home page, the most-read page on the site is a movie review: “CHIPS.” I simply don’t understand it. In a year it overtook the most-popular review and continues to pull away today. I hated the film and I guess my negative review has captured a certain audience.
As for other numbers:
My single day with the most page views was Feb. 18, 2018, with 2,109 page views (I guess a computer spider sped through my blog) and I’ve had visitors from more than 100 countries. Through 3:45 a.m. on Nov. 3, 2018, the most-read is the home page with 3,953 and second is the movie review of “CHIPS” with 1,601. Although posted just over a year ago on July 9, 2017, the review has shot up the list and is now firmly ahead of the No. 3 most-read page of my review of the TV mini-series “Noble House” with 861. The most-read non-review page is my first photo gallery of photos we’ve taken at Walt Disney World.
In all, I have 16 galleries of photo from WDW, six from photos from our hometown of Naples, Fla., and a variety of others. I’ve posted a total of 4,021 entries on this blog as of 5:01 a.m. today, with 1,645 being photos from our many WDW visits.
So, there you have it. Thank you for reading this far (not many will) and I hope you return again … and again … and …
