I haven't posted one of these since Best November ever and other monthly meta. As I promised to resume doing so in Redistricting reform, the second most read post of blog year five, I'm going to follow through.
Last month was the best February in the history of the blog so far with 33 entries earning 12,256 page views and 36 comments. Both exceeded February 2015, which had 10,731 page views and 13 comments for 32 entries. Those stats translate into 422.62 page views per day, 371.39 page views per entry, 1.14 entries per day, 1.24 comments per day, and 1.09 comments per entry. Even after accounting for the additional day (yay, leap year!), February 2016 had better stats than February 2015--383.25 page views per day, 335.34 page views per entry, 1.14 entries per day (that this stat didn't increase is a good thing; it means I didn't have to work any harder for my page views, one of my goals for the past two years), 0.57 comments per day, and 0.5 comments per entry. Every single one of those statistics increased (or didn't increase in the case of posts per day) in the direction I wanted it to.
To celebrate these records, I'm sharing the most commented on, liked, shared, and viewed posts from and during February 2016. I begin with "Super Bowl drinks from Tipsy Bartender" posted on February 7, 2016. This entry tied for most commented on post for February with four comments. It fell just outside of the top ten posted during the month with 106 page views according to the raw counter.
Next, "May Leonard Nimoy's memory live long and prosper" from February 28, 2015 was the most liked entry from this blog on Google Plus last month, earning 15 pluses on the last three days of the month when it was shared on the anniversary of Nimoy's death. It has a total of 18 likes over its history. It also earned 85 page views that month.
The most saved and liked entry on Pinterest during February was "Final 'Star Wars VII' trailer and reaction" posted on October 25, 2015. Last month alone, 428 people saved the pin and 68 liked it for a total of 466 saves and 100 likes so far.
