New milestone - 75.000 page views

Why do you always have to take pictures of me, when I am sleeping, human ?

What an amazing number of page views - 75.000 page views - into to life here in my little kitchen and even smaller garden/park and tiny kitchen garden.

Friends keep asking me, why do you actually blog ? For me it is a way to stress off from work just like gardening, as you actually here can see, that something is happering like, when you are working in your garden. The trick for me is to say, when I have spend a certain amount of time in my garden or blogging, when it is more than OK to stop, letting everything rest and do something else or nothing at all, if you feel like this.

Within another short periode of time of only 7 months my blog about activities in my kitchen and garden has been having another 25.000 page views, so it has reached a new mile stone of 75.000 page view since the very beginning a little closer to 3 years ago.

Three blog posts, which have been written here in 2013 have actually made it into the overall Top 10 list, which is quiet amazing. The most amazing is actually the post on "Paleo (Stone-age diet) chocolate", which made into the overall Top 10 (being a number 7) within a time frame of 1 week !!!! So a bunch of Stone-age people must have made it into the virtual world - welcome :-) The two post from 2013 on the overall Top 10 list is "The ultimate strawberry cake - Strawberry cake version 5.0" and paleo related post "Stone-age bread".
So if I should have a description of you as blog reader of "Kitchen of Kiki" I would say that:

  • you like me has a "sweet tooth" towards cakes (4 posts are cake recipes)
  • you like to drink tea and you are a keen fan of Kusmi tea (like I am)
  • you like to use marzipan for Christmas confect (1 post)
  • you like to eat "Stone-age" food (2 posts), which I find interesting to try out, but I do not follow this diet regime
  • you like to eat at restaurants (1 post)
  • and finally you like to meet new people with similar interest (1 post)

Among the top 10 post written here in 2013 you will find:
  1. The ultimate strawberry cake - Strawberry cake version 5.0
  2. Paleo (stone-age diet) chocolade cake
  3. Stone-age bread
  4. Bergamot-orange jam for Tea Time Treat

  7. Curry with chicken, edam beans and carrots
  8. Strawberry cake version 4.0
  9. Tartes aux pommes for Tea Time Treat
  10. Hindbærsnitter - raspberry cutting a la Dr Oetker
So if I should have a description of you as blog reader of "Kitchen of Kiki" based on the last 7 month  I would say, that:
  • you really has a "sweet tooth" towards cakes (6 posts are cake/sweet bun recipes)
  • you like to follow the virtual monthly Tea Time Treat (4 posts have been a part of this specific blogging event)
  • you like to eat "Stone-age" food (2 posts), which I find interesting to try out, but I do not follow this diet regime

I have also noticed, that I have more and more readers coming from out-side Denmark, where USA, Russia, UK, Germany and Norway still accounts for the growth in non-Danish readers.
