The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 120,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 5 days for that many people to see it.
*Apparently the “stats monkeys” were asleep at the wheel – that’s 125,000 and counting…
This has been a fun year for my blog, but a serious one as well. A few months ago was getting tired. I’ve written a little more than a post a day for near two years and if you take the full three years I’ve been writing this blog, then add reblogs (maybe one a week) and I’m averaging 1.7 posts per day. Folks, that’s a lot of writing on top of a big day job – and I’m picking up a second day job in 2015 (more on that later). A long story short, I thought about calling it good on the blog so I could concentrate on more pressing matters…and then I wrote a few posts on recovery rolling up to my anniversary month. Some of the comments on those posts made me think twice and I ended up deciding that I’d keep her going and if the worst came about I’d drop to one or two posts a week and just concentrate on the important topics rather than mess with whatever crossed my fancy. Well, that hasn’t come about quite though I haven’t worried about taking a day off as much as I once did.
That said, I have a lot to look forward to in 2015. As long as I do what is right and in front of me, it’s going to be a good and busy year. One day at a time.
Thanks to everyone who came along for the ride.
