Blog Notes Q1, 2014
Since the beginning of the year I feel like I'm really beginning to hit my stride with the blog. While there are occasional days where I struggle to find anything to write about; more often than not, I find that there simply isn't enough time in the day to say everything I'd like.
Performance on Established Goals
Daily Posting Schedule: One of my big goals for the blog in this upcoming year was to maintain a post a day ratio. Currently we are on day 98 of this year and this will be post 238. So that averages out to 2.5 posts a day, well above my goal.
Comment Response Time: I had originally sought to drop my response time down from an average of 96 hours to 1 hour. I find that is an unreasonable expectation on my part so I have adjusted this goal to a response time of 24 hours. So far I've been able to achieve this on most occasions.

Days Without a Post | 2
My page views are a little bit off because I only factored in the views that occurred on posts that were published during each individual month and not the total number of views that occurred on each day as I have a lot of posts that continue to receive traffic months after they were originally posted.
