Double Pageview Challenge : Day 8 Challenge for spinoff Cactus Haiku
Day 8, wasn’t going to do a report but got a new high visitor so couldn’t resist. Not doing anything strategywise though, taking a break. Just doing prompts and challenges.
New High visitors plus I hit 20 followers! WP Likes matches yesterday New High, and the 76 comes in second to yesterday’s New High. Google Analytics showed 8 referrals from pinterest (GA new pinterest high), wordpress shows 0 for pinterest. And wordpress stats showed 15 people coming over from WordPress Reader — YAY!
So let’s see how I did yesterday (Saturday) compared to previous Saturdays. October 7 we had started the one week challenge. Challenge days are in yellow
|pinterest referred*||8 / 0||4/ 1||— / 2||— / 1||–/ 0|
|facebook referred*||6 / 6||3 / 4||— / 1||— / 1||–/ 0|
|wordpress referred*||6 / 15||0 / 0||— / 0||–/ 1||–/ 0|
*pinterest, facebook, wordpress are showing google analytics stats / wp stats (since I only signed up for google analytics this week, there are not stats for prior weeks for GA)
**I have set up google analytics to minus my own isp so that it doesn’t get added into the numbers
2 more new followers on the 14th. I now have 20 followers. Pretty amazing when you think on October 5th, I had 2.
Edge of Humanity Magazine has a wide range of articles from art to politics. I love the “Are you Sleeping Enough” photograph essay by conributor Keith Goldstein, a New York street photographer.

Strategy 7: Challenges
Well, I did mean to go take another photo today but had insomnia again (a problem for me) so didn’t fall asleep until 8am so I ended up sleeping the day away. Maybe I should try shooting sunrises, lol.
Submitted to Cee’s B&W photo challenge. Midnight posed for me last night so today I changed the photo into black and white, posting a tutorial here while I was at it.
I did finally post my Cactus Haiku Challenge and invited people to submit haiku, senryu and tanka on cats. Every since D from 25more made the comment about cats and haiku, I’ve been wanting to do the challenge (which you know if you’ve read the last couple daily reports). The WordPress folks did get back to me that it is impossible to do the picture on pingbacks like their’s as it’s a specially made theme — drat! So we all are limited to text pingbacks.
I think it’ll be fun for those who love cats and haiku. I also put the invite up on Facebook and Pinterest haiku or senryu groups. I’ll be thrilled if people participate.
I received 26 wordpress likes today, a new high. Here is my happy applause for the people who liked me on the 14th.
