I work in a data-based school, which means we are constantly collecting and analyzing data about our students’ progress to guide our decisions to further their growth. Although I am not a fan of over-testing kids, the past two years have definitely converted me to a believer in the value of data.
This is true of my blog as well. I love studying page views, “favorites” and “repins,” and Instagram trends. Considering how frequently people tell me they enjoy my blog but don’t know where to start, this post might help you decide what to try first! 🙂
Most Favorited on FoodGawker
I had to list these first, considering how honored I am every single time one of my recipes is published here. Whenever a post is “successful” here, it’s the dairy-free icing on the vegan cake. According to my observations, the FoodGawker community will gravitate to the most aesthetically pleasing or “fanciest” recipes, as opposed to healthy or easy. Here are my most favorited recipes on FoodGawker:
Most Repinned on Pinterest
Frustratingly, I cannot track every single time something is repinned on Pinterest from other people’s pins; I can only track when people repin MY pins. Thus, this data was taken from my own Pinterest board, The Oatmeal Artist
. Compared to FoodGawkers, Pinners are less picky about aesthetics and more interested in EASE and CHOCOLATE. 🙂 Here are my top five most repinned recipes on Pinterest:
Coming soon… Most Liked on Facebook!
