So far, this was our most successful week on WordPress! A lot happened over the past few days–we’ve taken a huge step forward for reasons we’ll cover below (and don’t miss our very special update at the end of this post)!So, let’s recap week six on WordPress!
We reached 4,200 views collectively this week (1,265 visitors) compared to last week’s 3,300 views (996 visitors)–that’s a 900-view growth, way above our average! We topped 1,000 likes this week, compared to last week’s 860 likes–that’s a healthy 240 likes on our poet’s submissions this week–right around our weekly average. We reached 220 comments, compared to last week’s 180 (including our replies)–that means 40 comments on our posts. And, we’ve reached 223 followers compared to last week’s 184. That means we earned forty followers this week–well above our average!
This week we published:
And many others sent us submissions to our Monthly Paid Competition
Stay tuned for some great posts coming up next week!
Our Monthly Paid Competition has been getting a lot of attention! We’re excited to have the ability to pay you for your work in a world that seldom does, and we hope this competition drives traffic to our site, thus to our submitters’ work! Here’s more information on it.
A VERY SPECIAL UPDATE
We send our deepest gratitude to our donators–you keep the future of Vita Brevis and its poets bright! Thanks to your donations not only are we able to host a paid poetry competition but were able to buy our own domain and integrate WordAds on our site. Now, by simply visiting our site and interacting with ads, you are “donating” to our magazine! This is just one more way that we can support the poetic community and keep improving our magazine.
If you have been enjoying the site, consider “buying us a coffee” (donating $3 to the magazine via Ko-fi) so we can host paid competitions, buy our own domain and upgrade our blog plan for more creative freedom, host a writing contest every month with a cash prize, and one day pay our general submitters for their work! You can contribute here.
Until next Sunday, Readers
Happy Holidays (and Merry Christmas Eve!)
