I’m pretty sure most of you have read at least one of my stat and income reports. They usually do really well. You nosey lot love digging into the nitty gritty and seeing how many views and how much dollar I’m getting a month.
I don’t blame you. I love knowing other bloggers stats, too.
If you’ve not read, then you can find them here:

I decided not to do one in June. I probably won’t do one in July either.
You might wonder why when I get ALL THE VIEWS and social media attention from them. I love me some social media attention.
The thing is, I’m going through one of those phases where I just don’t care about stats anymore. I know, shocking, right? I’m always banging on about how much I love numbers and tracking things. Now I’m saying DON’T CARE.
This happens, though. I have times when all I want to do is increase my views and get more Instagram followers. Then I have times when I don’t care.
Well, that’s a lie.
I do care. I just care less.
Obviously, a big part of this has been LIFE. I’ve just moved house, I’ve been busy lately, I have a lot going on at work so my mind has been obsessing over other things than my bounce rate.
I’m also now on an electric meter. They’re the only stats I’ve been obsessing over lately. I’ve been in this house a week and used about a fiver of leccy. I check it like a million times a day. I don’t know why. Please can you all let me know how much you’ve got on your meter? If you’re not on a meter, how much you spend a month on electric. I need to know. Come on, it’s fun.
I’ve forgotten what I was trying to say.
Oh yes. Sometimes life gets in the way and priorities change. I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned this in my why I care about pageviews post.
So now I’m at a point in my life where I’m not obsessing over growing my blog, I just wanted to let you know. I’m just really content with how things are now. I’m still blogging daily, so spending a lot of time on the site. But less time checking and tracking stats.
This will pass, though. In a few months. I expect in September/October time. I seem to always feel like this at this time of year.
Another reason I stopped doing the posts is that my stats have been pretty stable over the last few months. The amount followers I gain each month is pretty similar and there aren’t any massive changes in my page views.
So unless anything drastic happens over the next few months, I likely won’t post any more stat updates until January.
So there. Just wanted to let you know.
Do you even care?
Do you go through phases where you care less about stats and blog growth?
