Kim, my dear data-nerd friend, you may wonder: How did the #AtoZChallenge traffic compare to our regular flow? Content wise, we nearly tripled the number of posts to our blog this month in comparison to other months. The average traffic was up a bit too. We usually see about 150 views per post compared to the #AtoZ crowd at an average of 163. Shares and comments were down a little from our regular posts but the overall monthly visitors grew by nearly 3,000.

As far as featuring awesome authors and illustrators, no change there. Ink Sisters Write is all about spreading the book love and shouting about new and favorite authors of books for kids and teens.


We did it! #AtoZChallenge 2016 SUCCESS!

Looking forward to the 2017 #AtoZChallenge. Until then we'll keep sharing the writer love one letter at a time.

Much love,
Alison
