The Least Popular Posts Of 2016

No Caption Needed

The end 2016 marked the end of our first full year blogging. In case you have not realized, this blog went live on October 20th, 2015 the day I posted My First Project Ever! So on December 31st, 2016, the blog was 1 year, 2 months and 10 days old! Exciting huh?

When we first started, the only traffic we were getting was from friends, family and some spammers. Eventually, though, our organic and referral traffic started showing up! The excitement of seeing the traffic grow is what has kept us going until now (well, we could have kept blogging without traffic anyway, just with less excitement), so we would like to give thanks to all of you who decided to check out our blog. We hope our posts have been helpful and have also encouraged you to complete some DIY projects. That’s the reason why we’re here.


We all like good news. Many bloggers list their most popular, most shared or most commented blog posts on their front pages. We would like to do the opposite, listing the blog posts with the least amount of traffic in 2016.

Not that they are bad news because they still had plenty of views and whoever the visitors were, at least, they learned of our website. But they definitely lacked when compared to others. Although we know there are many reasons why, including the date of publication (towards the end of the year), we want them to get more attention.

So, without further comment, here is the list of posts with the least amount of visits (organized from least to most visits):
