Sucky stuff and stats

My new pacifiers

It is the fourth anniversary of Toddlerism.com and we celebrate with adult dummies/pacifiers and some stats about my readers over the past four years.

First up, I have some new adult dummies/pacifiers from Inner-Child. I have reviewed these before and I really like them. Here are some pictures of the most recent two I have acquired:

They look pretty good, do they not? I really like them. I find it easy to sleep with them and they are comfortable for general use. I highly recommend Inner-Child adult pacifiers, co cannot really go wrong with them.

However, a lot of people have been after silicone sucky bits on their adult pacifiers. I have reviewed the adult pacifiers from Baby-Pants.com and Cuddlz and found them lacking.

Then, about a week ago a friend pointed me toward the eBay store of babea0, where s/he sells silicone sucky part adult dummies. They look good, and they are very keenly priced.

One feature of them I like is that at the edges of the sucky part they have thickened silicone rubber. This helps keep them in shape when you are sucking them. Have a look:

The babea0 adult pacifiers only come in pink or blue, so if you want to have colourful or printed adult pacifiers, off you go to Inner-Child.

However, I really like the babea0 adult dummies, my one is my new favourite dummy. I cannot recommend them highly enough and if you want an adult pacifier than I suggest this be your first port of call. They are really top kit!

Now, in a ‘good for the ego’-move here are some pictures of me modelling these three pacifiers. You can skip past these, if you like, and get to the juicy stats about that readers of Toddlerism during its first four years online!

Right, now the 4th anniversary stats porn! I am afraid I cannot give my stats in as much detail as I would like as I discovered at the end of last year that Google Analytics had not been collecting data from all my sites for almost six months – so I cannot give complete details from Google. All that follows comes from the somewhat less satisfactory WordPress stats module.

Big numbers first! Toddlerism has displayed 1,066,320 pages in the last four years for the delectation of 387,137 readers. This means each visitor reads, on average, 2.75 posts.

The greatest number of pages (404,120) are read by people coming from search engines; I have limited data about incoming searches, but the most common search term for finding me appears to be ‘adult baby clothes’. My biggest audience, having read a whopping great 488,743 pages, are people from the USA. The U.K. audience is second with 251,646 pages viewed.

The day that had the most pages read was 14 February 2014 with 3,608 pages viewed. The most popular day for reading Toddlerism.com is Sunday, with 16% of all views, the busiest hour is 22:00 (UK time) with 6% of all page views.

I have published 139 posts, which is 34.75 every year, 2.83 a month or 0.67 posts every week. Given the total number of post views, and the number of posts I have written, each post has been read, on average, 7,671 times.

The post with most comments (25) is ‘Why am I little?’, second is ‘Would you use a pacifier in public?’ with 12 comments.

The page that has been viewed most often (excluding the homepage) is Adult Baby hypnosis files with 76,878 views; the most read post being ‘Adult pacifiers from Inner Child’ with 20,186 views. My most clicked outgoing link is to Baby-Pants.com, with 22,725 people heading to that fine supplier of little goods.

Toddlerism.com’s Facebook page is followed by 398 people, my @LittleBoyDavy Twitter account has 374 followers and my Tumblr account has 370 followers.

How I can give stats for this site running for exactly four years when I am only four years old is a mystery I will leave you to solve…

    Hi Davy, I’m elated to see a new post! I hope you and your partner are doing well!

    I’m also extremely happy looking at Toddlerism’s stats, it seems to be doing amazingly! I normally consider our community of littles and ABs as very small, but it’s only when I look at figures like these that I am truly reminded how many of us are out there. It’s comforting, really!

    Oh, and I meant to comment this on your last post, but I’ve been listening to some of the music you’ve composed and it’s awesome, thank you for sharing it! 😀

    • Hello Fenris,

      Lovely to hear from you! I have to admit to being quite chuffed when I was adding up all the stats – my posts appear to be distinctly popular! Of course, I’m deeply flattered than a third of a million people have dropped by to read my opinionated rantings;) I hope I don’t go through any more bad patches where I’m unable to post – that greatly effects the amount of traffic I get, based on past experience. I’d quite like to talk some people into writing guest posts; it’s nice to have different voices to my own from time to time and I think/hope my readers like that too. Anything you would like to write about??

      Thank you for your kind words about my musical output: I’m a distinctly amateur, amateur musician! That being said, I’ve had two tracks broadcast on the radio, that’s quite flattering too! Despite that little piece of ego-fuel, I will keep writing music when I want to, for fun, rather than put pressure on myself to produce stuff of sellable quality – the Toddlerism piggy bank doesn’t need filling that badly!

      Anyway,thank you for dropping by, and for all your kind comments. I hope you are well and happy.

        Ah, I’m so sorry I’m so late to reply!! I have been busy lately with exams but that’s really no excuse for neglecting to check for your lovely reply! I’m sorry!

        And gosh, I’m really flattered for you to offer for me to write for your blog, thank you! I’d have no idea what to write about, however, my experience and knowledge as a little is hardly thrilling reading! But if you ever need anything you’d like me to write, I’d be honored!

        Congrats for getting your music broadcast on the radio as well, it’s really really good! It’s also good that you don’t pressure yourself when writing it, it completely sucks all of the fun out of a hobby when you push yourself too hard instead of concentrating on having fun while doing it. That happened to me a year or so ago, when I wanted to write an original story and post it on the internet, because I enjoyed writing so much. By some miracle (and it truly was a miracle, I look back at it now and the writing quality is simply horrendous), the story managed to get vaguely popular and I found myself having to write when I didn’t really feel like it, just so I could get another chapter out. It quickly became tedious, and I lost all motivation in doing it because I was pressuring myself to write good content in a short amount of time. So I’m grateful you didn’t make the same mistake as I did! I really wish I was as skillful as you at composing music, as I listen to music every change I get during the day and it would be amazing to be able to create it, but I think I’m more artistically inclined (not to say that I’m good at it, and by looking at the drawing you did for the last post, I’m no where near as good as you!)!

        Anyway, sorry again for the extremely late reply! I hope you are doing well, and have a nice weekend!

      • No need to apologise for not commenting on a blog post? It’s not as if I write them very often, so you have little chance of catching one ‘fresh’!

        Thank you for your comments on my music,. I hope it continues to improve! I have to get better at editing though, it can be difficult to balance too many or too few things happening at once.

        If you’d like a guest post on here please feel free to write about anything you fancy – apart from the block on never stopping it from being suitable for the whole family;)

        Anyway, I must away to dinner, anon!

    • If, having read Fenris’ glowing endorsement you’d like to listed to some of my music it is .here.

  • Thank you Davy for the as usual wonderful review.
    Iv got a few baby pacifiers which I love and often wear and suck during the day, but I felt it was finally time to get a nice larger one for night time comfort as my small ones arnt the best for lying down and relaxing while sucking.
    The baby bear boutique ones look great so iv just visited the link and ordered both a pink and blue one myself, they are selling a plain white one now too.

    Later I may visit inner child for a more decorated one as my day time one, looking at their collection they even have some nearly identical to my favorite pooh bear baby sized one 🙂

    • Hi Dazzer,
      The Baby Bear Boutique sell excellent, silicone pacifiers at great prices – they are a company to be encouraged!

      However, even though they are not silicone I’m rather attached to my favourite Inner-Child dummy. I like it’s bright colours and motif. We are getting spoilt for choice!
