That Bookkeeper’s Hours of Operation

When you’re a numbers junkie, you obsess about ALL numbers, not just ones that relate directly to your job.

The worse thing that has happened to my productivity over the past year is analytics. I know, in the end, that these stats don’t help me out proportionally to the time I spend pouring over them. It doesn’t change the fact that I find them absolutely fascinating. So, when I came across a post at Blogging Teacher that talked about the busiest time of the day for your blog, I immediately had to find out more. Here’s the original post.

How to Find the Busiest Time of Day for your Blog

A few minutes later, I have some official results. Apparently my blog runs, more or less, on school hours.

As you can see from the chart, traffic starts to pick up at about 7am, gets really busy at 8am, and then drops off slightly just after 3pm.

If I think about it, this makes sense. This looks a lot like my workday too. I do the majority of my work when the kids are at school, and get a few more things done while I eat supper. You see that small spike at midnight? That’s me reading my RSS feeds before bed. Apparently you and I have a lot in common.

If you run your own blog, give this a shot, and let me know what your results show.
