2011 in review for Dakota’s Den

Hi All!!

WordPress does something that Mom and I thought was pretty interesting! They send you an email with stats about your blog!

Considering I just started this blog in April (and only posted once a week if I was lucky) cause of how much Mom & Cody were posting for Cat Chat and not letting me use the computer, I don’t think this was half bad!!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,100 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

Click here to see the complete report.

Mom thinks that Blogger should get with the program and offer the same thing!!

Special thanks to SmartBones and Following Atticusย for being ย the subjects of two of our top posts!

If you missed the above posts, you may read the SmartBones post by clicking hereย and my Mom’s review of Following Atticus by clicking here!

Also THANK YOU to everyone who takes the time to read and subscribe to my blog!


Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  2. Great job, Dakota! I love your blog!

      Mom is still waiting for your address! You won a prize on Cody’s blog but we don’t have your address!

      Barks and licks and love, Dakota and Mom

  3. We’re your faithful followers too!!! Sometimes I do go missing because of Mom’s laziness! Please forgive her!


    • Eva I know you are silly girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Are you kidding? You are always here!

      Even if you weren’t, my Mom and I totally understand because sometimes we have to “go missing” too!!!

      We don’t want to but sometimes we have to!!!

      Barks and licks and love, Dakota and Mom!

  4. Funny, in college, I hated statistics. But now, at least when it comes to blogging, I love looking at the numbers! ISn’t it fun?

    Happy New Year!

    • Sara Hi!! I couldn’t hate statistics in college because I am so mathematically challenged that when I was in college there is NO WAY I would have taken ANY math at all!

      I even chose a major so that I could avoid it!

      I am not thrilled with the numbers but with the blog being pretty new and not as frequently updated as Cat Chat, it isn’t too bad!

      HAPPY NEW YEAR to you too!

  5. Those are some great stats! Congratulations and here’s to a great New year!!

    • Hi jen!! They are really rather crappy! BOL! But I figure if I “put it out there” it might motivate me to do better with poor Dakota’s blog ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. Happy New Year, and I love your blog. Great job.

    • Hi Mary and Roxy! HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AS WELL and thank you!!! I love yours too! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  8. Wow Dakota,

    Great job buddy – I love that report – I wish I got one of those but on WP.org one never showed up?! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    I can’t believe I hit the top spot for chatting away to you, I can’t help myself sometimes, I’m a bit of a chatter box – so happy I found you Dude, cos you rock!!

    Your pal Snoopy ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi Snoop!!!

      Thanks much!! I don’t know why I got one, I read another blog that got one too and I wondered why I didn’t, then mine came! Maybe it went into your spam mail? Did you check? I am the worst person to ask cause I don’t know how it works ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      Yep you sure did hit the top spot and I am grateful and THANK YOU!!! I love that you chat with me!

      I am happy that I found you too cause you are the coolest Snoopy!!!!! I just wish we lived by each other so we could play ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      Happy New Year Buddy!
      Barks and licks and love, Dakota

      • Hey Dakota,

        I so wish we could have a real live play date too – maybe one day we’ll get to meet for real?

        In the meantime I’m having fun on our virtual play buddy!!

        Have a fun day,

        Your pal Snoopy ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a great achievement for a blog started on April…great job Dakota!!

    happy new year Dakota

    • Hi Novroz! Yep it is the “first time” for this blog!

      Thank you for your kind words! Now if Mom could just have me update more often!!


      Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  11. We received our stats, too, and enjoyed reviewing our blogging report for the past year. Time flies when you’re blogging! The best part of it is that you get to capture all the memories and revisit them any time you wish. Happy new year to you all!

    • @Happy Bark Days actually yours might have been the one that I saw…I don’t remember!

      The stats for Dakota’s blog are dreadful lol…it is my fault because i focus much more on Cat Chat (whose stats are great but that blog is on Blogger)….Cat Chat is also over 2 yrs old and this one isn’t even a year yet…I do have to do better with this one though….hugely better!


  12. Hey, that’s pretty slick! (I had to write my own reports on blogger – boo hiss!)

    I think this blog is doing just fine – Dakota’s a doll and your following will only grow and grow. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Leslie thanks!!

      I have Cat Chat on Blogger…how did you write your own reports?

      Ohhh thanks about Dakota’s blog…actually no it won’t lol…dakota leads a boring life and i put waaaay more energy into Cat Chat so I am afraid that poor Dakota is doomed! lol

  13. Gorgeous Dakota!!! This post was in my spam email inbox! Me and Charlie are so sorry to have missed it!!

    WOW!! We love the wordpress report on your blog – so snazzy!!! We too think blogger should do something fun like this too with fireworks and graphics!! Yay!


    Take care

    • Hi Old Kitty and Charlie!

      Awww that is ok!! You are BEYOND KIND that you faithfully come and read a blog by a WOOFIE!! It means so much to me and I really appreciate it!

      I think Blogger should do that as well! YOU tell them! xoxoxo

      Barks and licks and love and belated HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and Charlie too!

  14. Hi Dakota! sounds like a great report! High paw!
