Site Statistics: latest update - thank you, thank you, thank you!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU indeed! A big thank you to every one of our members for making Persona Paper a roaring success! There can now be little doubt that Persona Paper has established itself as a successful site for those writers, bloggers and photographers who care about giving value and doing things properly.

We now have members from many countries and many nationalities and we welcome every one of them and all those others out there who will surely follow in their footsteps.

This update details how far Persona Paper has come since the New Year bells rang in 2015. In just two months we have increased our active membership from 1000 on New Years Day to 1338 as I write this (March 3) - an increase of fully one-third!

Many new members began flocking to Persona Paper just before New Year and for a while it seemed like they would just keep on coming. I like to refer to this phenomenon as the 'Bubblews Bounce' and its effect was immediate and obvious. The number of daily posts shot up - and stayed up. The average posting rate is now about 140 posts per day and it shows no signs of stopping any time soon.

Although this increase is certainly very welcome we could still do better. 140 posts per day divided amongst 1338 members works out at one-tenth of a post per active member per day and I'm sure we could do better than that! As always, we could also do more to spread the word about Persona Paper and its friendly, open and informative culture of interactive writers.

Remember, the more active we are the more visible the site will be and that will attract more members and that will, hopefully, lead to an increase in pay rates - which will attract more members which will lead to an increase in pay rates which will attract more . . . well, I'm sure you get the idea. With a little bit more effort we can all enjoy a bigger share of a much bigger pie!

OK - enough talk, let's SEE the figures. This graphic shows the number of active members the site currently has (1338). You can see the effect of the 'Bubblews Bounce' which happened just before New Year and led to the site welcoming its 1000th member on New Year Day. The rate at which new members are joining the site has slackened off somewhat and returned to its 'pre-bounce' levels but we are still attracting new members.


This graphic shows site membership and the 'Bubblews Bounce' in a different form - with the one-third increase in red.


This is the posting rate. Again, the 'Bubblews Bounce' at New Year is obvious. Note that the posting rate has almost trebled and that we will very soon pass 26,000 posts published!


The same information again showing that the average number of daily posts has almost trebled - thanks to the 'Bubblews Bounce'


This is very encouraging and I can see only one way for Persona Paper to go - UP, UP AND AWAY to join the elite of the blogosphere!

INTERESTING FACT: Did you know that cats don’t have sweat glands on their bodies. They sweat through their paws.

Those who register here should be active but many are not.

Kasman , you've done it again -- and thank YOU. : ) I always enjoy reading the site statistics that you so kindly compile and present to the community. Things are definitely looking up here, as they have been steadily since I joined in August 2014. Onward and Upward, Together!

Kasman This is good news to hear. I always believed in Persona Paper. I know I haven't been too active lately. I know I also keep saying that. But in addition to Bubblews, there are other sites that I use to earn online as well. So, I do need to dedicate some time to them. I sometimes get sidetracked and forget all about coming here. Then there are the days that I come here before all the other sites. I think it will take more time to increase things here. But better being slow going than too fast and have problems.

LilyDay wrote on March 3, 2015, 7:59 PM

I expect that the site will continue to grow over coming months as word spreads that this is a good site to be on.

Good job on the math. Guiness the Cat says to tell you it's none of your business how he sweats.

Thank you crunching the numbers for us. You're so good at sharing this information with us.

It is always fun to see such statistics. Thank you for such a well prepared report. I love writing here but I sincerely hope the exchange rate would be increased more.

Wow, this is nice. I like to see Persona grow. Good job, everybody! :)

It seems that many of us came over from Bubblews, but quite a lot are no longer active, and some have gone back. It does seem that PP is picking up again this week though.

Elren wrote on March 4, 2015, 7:09 AM

That's good news! I'm a newbie here and hoping that Persona Paper grows more and more successful.

FreyaYuki wrote on March 4, 2015, 1:25 PM

Interesting. Thanks for presenting all the statistics to us. This is good news. Hopefully, the number of members and posts continue to increase.

Lushlala wrote on March 4, 2015, 1:59 PM

Thanks Kasman, for posting such an in depth and informative analysis of PP's performance! It's fantastic news and very encouraging as we watch so many new writing/blog sites crash and burn. Long may it continue :)

seren3 wrote on March 4, 2015, 5:16 PM

Thanks for the analysis! Good to know it's going so strongly!

AngelSharum wrote on March 4, 2015, 10:40 PM

This is definitely good news for the site and the members.

kasman thanks a lot for the detailed report, these numbers show that Persona Paper continues to grow at a steady pace (helped as you showed by the Bubblews Bounce in early January), these are really good news, and I hope it motivates more people to join and become very active here. Thanks again.

Kasman This is wonderful news indeed, really motivating for us to keep those numbers rising. Thank you for taking the time to present us with all these wonderful stats, we need people like you!

Thanks for taking the time to share some great statistics! I think that over the long run, Persona Paper will be much better than Bubblews.

It's encouraging to know that things are going so well here. I am trying to read and post more though I confess the former is easier for me...

crowntower wrote on March 7, 2015, 3:16 AM

That is so cool to know, I guess will have a strong proof that we are not wasting time here at Perosna Paper, and this will make us all motivated to do more and push more to level up each day. God bless.
