The Rantings - For Everyone

2017 in Review – ValerieRayne.com

It’s that time of year when everyone’s reminiscing about the last year and looking forward to the previous one. 

I’ve only recently, sort of in a hurry, gotten on the bandwagon. I was reminded of a couple of my past blog’s Year in Review and decided that I absolutely needed one this year! Alas, they no longer do this…
(2010, 2014 and 2015)

So, I spent a few days scouring my stats everywhere I have them and decided to create this awesome recap of some of my favorite stats of the year. If you’d like to view it online, you can do so here.

I’ve got a couple more recap posts planned and a looking forward to 2018 post almost ready to go! But, before I get into it, I want to know about your favorite parts of the last year and what you’re looking forward to most in the coming year.

  • What was your favorite post of the year? Is it one of the top posts or did you fall in love with something not on this list?
  • Did you have a favorite picture from the year? What about it did you enjoy the most? 
  • Any features or regular posts (such as #ThrowbackThursday or #TumblrFavorites) that you’d like to see return in 2018?
  • What do you hope to see more of on ValerieRayne.com in 2018? What do you hope to see less of?
  • Got any other great suggestions that I could implement in 2018?

The 100th Post

Honestly, I can’t believe that there’s only been 100 posts in the last 3 years…

ValerieRayne.com originally launched on August 4th, 2015 with the post “It’s Me Again!!“. After just over a year of publishing posts, ValerieRayne.com shut down for a total redesign on December 17th, 2016. I officially re-launched on February 13th, 2017 with the post “Welcome Back… Finally!!!” and reached my 100th post on March 13th, 2017.

Today, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the interesting stats and top posts from the last 3 years and the first 100 posts on ValerieRayne.com.


Stats for 2015

In 2015, I published a total of 70 posts on ValerieRayne.com. I received a total of almost 900 views from 500 visitors mostly from the United States, United Kingdom and Brazil.

#TumblrFavorites – Winter 2016/2017

I rounded up a few favorites for the four months that I was on hiatus but still Tumblr-ing.


Over the last 3 years, I’ve published 100 posts, had over 2000 views from over 1100 visitors from countries near and far. I’ve written about sex, love, my kids, my life and some of my favorite things like The Sims 4 and binge-worthy Netflix shows. I’ve launched and re-launched, designed and re-designed and learnt many new things about myself as a blog-a-holic over the years. It has been amazing!!!

Here’s to the first 100 and the next 100!
