We’ve Moved!

Due to an unexplained snafu that made WordPress somehow think we were spammers, we’ve moved to a self-hosted blog at blog.socialmediaperformancegroup.com.

We should have done it long ago, because all the cool WordPress plugins are only available on self-hosted blogs.

So if you’ve subscribed over here, we hope you’ll follow us over there.

Thanks.

2013 in review

Despite having moved our blog to http://blog.socialmediapeformancegroup.com partway through the year, we saw some good growth in engagement this year. The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 9,200 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Mike Ellsworth‘s insight:

There’s a great infographic in this post, and, yes, it talks about punctuation, among other things! Yes! The exclamation point is one of the marks! Does that surprise you?
