The Stat Connection

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called The Stat Connection, and this is what it said:

Go to your Stats page and check your top 3-5 posts.

Why do you think they’ve been successful?

Find the connection between them, and write about it.

And this is my response:

This Daily Prompt is not clear on whether it is referring to our top posts from today or this week or this month or this year or of all time, and so I will just list my current top posts from this year.

1. Weight(less)

I think that this post was successful because the Photo Challenge Community seems to be pretty supportive, and that was my first and only Photo Challenge that I have participated in so far.

2. Write Here Write Now | Sleep Parlysis With A Shadow Person

I think that this post was successful because it was made shortly after I read and commented on two posts made by two other bloggers who have had sleep paralysis before as well, and so several of us had posts about this same topic around the same time.

3. Unpopular

I think that this post was successful because I opened up more personally in my response to the Daily Prompt, and maybe because my dream involved the WWE.

4. Live To Eat

I think that this post was successful because of my short and simple and somewhat creative and comedic use of an image and a video to answer the Daily Prompt.

5. Teen Age Idol

I think that this post was successful because people were probably curious about other people’s responses to the Daily Prompt.

I think that the connection between these posts are that they simply connected more with the readers for various reasons.

Weight(less)

The Daily Post had a Photo Challenge today called Weight(less), and this is what it said:

Show us the effects of gravity in your photo this week.

And my response to this Photo Challenge can be seen above (I did not photograph the image above, I found it on Wikimedia Commons about two years ago and it is called Why Books Are Always Better Than Movies by Massimo Barbieri, but I think that it meets the theme of today’s Photo Challenge).

*I just found out that only original photos can be used in the Photo Challenges so I broke the rules without realizing it when I created this post, and so I will no longer do any Photo Challenges unless I have original photos to use.

I will possibly keep this post instead of deleting it to avoid deleting the comments and to avoid messing up links made to this post that are on other blogs, I apologize for my mistake, and I would like to thank everyone for the support and I would encourage you to warn other bloggers of this rule so that they will not make the same mistake that I did.* 🙂
