April 2023 Posting Schedule

In November 2022, I was pleasantly surprised to see a massive spike in traffic on PopCult due to my review of Skinamarink, the cult horror film that had stirred up quite a buzz at the time. My total number of views that month was over 6,800, a site record. That was pretty cool and while the number dipped the following months it continued to stay in that range, dipping to 4,200 in February. Then March happened and wow! 

Thanks to my solo tabletop rpg review of Artefact and a lot of attention to other various reviews I broke that November record by about 150%. My total for March was over 10,500 views. My total for the first quarter of 2023 is over 21,000 views which is higher than my total for any individual year I’ve worked on this blog other than 2022. If this momentum continues I’m looking at something like 85,000 views for 2023, which would be over double my total for 2022.

Now, I realize I am still infinitesimally small compared to any similar “big” website, but for me I think that’s pretty cool. I don’t know how to get people to engage more with what I write, and being autistic I’m not sure I would enjoy a lot of direct engagement with readers. I certainly appreciate the likes and I have some people who do that pretty regularly. It’s always good to know that what you are making is appreciated by somebody. If only I could turn this into a living but also not have to work directly for someone somehow, ha! Onto April’s schedule.
