We all have this internal turmoil from time to time, right?

(Although sometimes “cake” is replaced with “pizza” or “chocolate” or “oh my god, everything in the pantry, fridge, and that can be ordered.”)

What happened to Quirky Cookery in 2012?

QC site | March 26, 2013 | By

~Edit~  I found this in my drafts from back in January. This is the end of March. Instead of finishing it at this point, I’m going to simply post the summaries I had from then and I’ll do a new one around the blogaversary time in the summertime. It’s still interesting, so no need in deleting it. I wonder what the next year will bring!"~~

So what if the first month of the new year is almost over? I usually do this kind of “review” for my blogaversary instead, but that would’ve been back in July of last year and uh, I’m really, REALLY late for that…. oops…

Here’s what QC looked like in 2012:

  • Almost 100k *unique* visitors last year…..with thousands of them coming back regularly.
  • 15% of those were on mobile devices, with that percentage going up quite a bit in the last few months.
  • Pinterest loves QC. <3 StumbleUpon no longer does, boo. :(
  • Visitors still use Internet Explorer way too much, but at least the next two browsers being used most are Chrome and Firefox.

Most searched for terms:
