I logged onto my blog this morning to a nice and interesting notice. Well at least it was interesting to me. There’s been “A Spike in your stats”.
I’m honored and thrilled that so many folks around the world have come to visit Springwolf Reflections to learn about The History of Friday The 13th – A Good Day For Pagans.
I must admit I had to ask the math genius in my house to explain the numbers. I’m a visionary, not a calculus expert! He works with calculations all day, every day so he understood this right away.
In his mind, the blog received a spike of 79 views in one hour. The visits over a single day would average out to 7 visits an hour. Which is a stat that doesn’t make sense to me when you look at the overall stats report for my blog.
I host the blog on WordPress.net and they provide a nice graphical history of your blog over time. The stats help a blogger see what brings people in and that helps you provide more of the same type of content to keep people interested.
On average Springwolf Reflections sees about 200 visits in a single day. But it does jump on occasion for special days, such as holidays or days with unique events such as December 21st, 2012. Or like today, Friday the 13th.
I’m pleased my article about “The History of Friday The 13th” seems to provide interest to those searching about the day and what it might mean. I hope it gives people an alternative view to the day, the number and pagans in general.
From a numerological standpoint 13 is the number of transition, bringing change and movement. In Shamanistic Numerology, we calculate numbers to a single digit. In this case 1 +3 = 4. In this method, today is represented as a four, which if you’re a regular to my blog, you may know four is my favorite and my lucky number.
In this form of numerology the number is defined as follows:
Four – The number of progression, the circle of life or the change of seasons, movement and cycles, the ability to endure, stability.
- This number is associated with Mercury.
- This number is associated with the Mountain Ash Tree.
- This number is associated with the Otter.
- It represents the flow of spirit and nature.
- Positive Direction: 4 is the number of nature. It embodies the talent of instinct and the ability to change and fit in with its surroundings. It is a mailable number that feels comfortable in the spirit world as equally as it does in the physical world.
- Negative Direction: In reverse 4 can indicate instability, being flighty and having a need to get back to your roots. Feeling confused and not being able to make decisions, or choices on your own.
I’m thrilled with the new visitors and extend a special thank and welcome. I hope you’ll spend a little time here and see the other articles on the blog that you might find interesting. You can find some of the highlights on Reflections A-Z. And I’d also like to invite you to Spring’s Haven, my website for my spiritual center.
By the end of the day, my little blog had its best day ever. 788 views in a single day. From,interesting enough 13 countries: the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, France, Trinidad, South Africa, Singapore, Netherlands, Norway, Turkey, Brazil and Greece,
313 of those visits came from search engines looking for Friday the 13th information. 30 came from other blogs or websites talking about Friday the 13th. 192 came from Facebook and 20 came from Twitter. I must say I’m surprised by that. Not sure why, but I’d think more would come from Twitter than FB.
In the end, Friday the 13th is a good day for pagans, certainly held true for this pagan. It was a good day indeed.
