Year in Review: 2022 Stats

   

I would like to thank everyone who reads Autumn Sky Poetry DAILY, and all the poets who’ve sent their work to me over the years (from the quarterly ezine begun in 2006 to now). I can honestly say that the quality of work I receive on a daily basis is what keeps me going. The stats for 2022 exceeded 2021 (and every other prior year):

  • Total views: 57,447 (average ~5000 per month)
  • Total visitors: 23, 307 (average ~2000 per month)
  • Likes: 2564 (twice as many as 2021)
  • Comments: 414

Right now I am on hiatus from reading submissions until February 1, 2023. During this time, I will be working on a new theme/interface for the site that will hopefully make it easier to maintain. I’ve already upgraded my website plan in order to make room for more photos (for the Saturday book feature) and to automate backups. I’m hoping this process goes smoothly, but you know how much fun “upgrading” tech can be. Wish me luck!

This year I will continue to post poems from the defunct quarterly archives as well as poems from the daily archives every Sunday. Each Saturday will feature a book and poem from a past contributor. I expect to go on hiatus once in a while, but rest assured that your spectacular poems and our community of poetry aficionados will keep Autumn Sky Poetry DAILY going for many years to come.

    Dear Christine!
    Thanks beyond measure for all of your efforts and for choosing poems that we can enjoy and appreciate every day! I think you are one of the best journals (print and online) in this country! And no fuss or bother… or cover letter, or credits needed. A great poem does stand alone and is meant to be shared. Thank you also for publishing a few of my poems, too! So exciting to look for those 5 days!

    project and you do it daily–brava Christine.

    I enjoy your commentary that follows some of the poems you publish. Very few journals do this. I was on the staff of one journal where we reviewed a small number of the poems we published. I think it adds value to the journal.

    Those numbers speak volumes! To your good work and dedication, to the creativity of this ever-growing community of poets, and to the joy and power of shared poetry. I echo every comment made before mine. It was a thrill to have one of my poems published, to read your insightful comments, and to receive comments from those touched by the poem. It’s a pleasure to be greeted and inspired every morning by a poem. Good luck with the tech upgrade, and thank you for Autumn Sky Daily.

    Hi Christine,

    Just to let you know that the home page says “…until February 1, 2022 (site upgrade).” I’m sure you meant to say 2023.

    Thanks for all the good work.
