One of the most bewildering aspects of blogging is how readers find your blog and which blog entries become the most popular.  My first year of blogging, I discovered I have a lot of stalkers.  “Stephanie Nikolopoulos” was one of the most common phrases that brought readers to my blog.  I’m only kidding when I call you stalkers.  I know that a lot of you landed here after hearing me speak or reading my writing elsewhere, and I’m so excited that you took the time to find my personal site.  Welcome!

Okay, so the blog entry that seems to bring an awful lot of readers here is Gripster: The Greek Michael Scott.  A lot of people who search for “michael scott mykonos” or “michael scott greek character” end up here.  Hey, I’m a big fan of The Office too obviously and miss Steve Carrell.  I’m just surprised by the amount of people searching for information on one of Michael Scott’s alter-egos.  I wonder if I should post more on Greek characters on tv….

Less surprisingly, my coverage of the Gabby Awards also brought a lot of readers to the site.  That was such a fun event to write about.  I hope I’ll get a chance to cover the 2013 Gabby Awards in LA.

The interesting thing is that although the Greek Michael Scott post among the most popular, it never received a single comment!  The most commented on blog post isn’t one that brings people to the site usually.  It was My Material World Project.  As I start to think about blog posts for 2012, I’ll be keeping this information in the back of my head.  It’s fun having such varied readers, but I want to make sure I’m writing content that makes readers want to subscribe and come back to read more.

That said, I’ll leave you with a quote from Michael Scott:

Do I need to be liked? Absolutely not. I like to be liked. I enjoy being liked. I have to be liked. But it’s not like this, compulsive, need, to be liked. Like my need to be praised.
