There are a number of factors that determine whether or not a view/visit will show up in your analytics. The following are not reflected in your stats:
*Visits to uploaded documents and files
*GoogleBot and other search engine spiders
*Visits you make to your own publicly available blog (when logged in to your account)
*Visits by users that are logged in, and listed as members of the blog
Do you know if any of the aforementioned scenarios were true when your article was shared? If you are not sure then I would suggest you try again keeping the aforementioned scenarios in mind.

I hope this information helps! :)
