Blogging – Year in Review
So, it’s that time of the year when WordPress sends you a little report about how your blog fared. Here’s what they sent…
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 130,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
To me, it doesn’t say very much at all. Honestly, I blogged a lot less this year. But, I am a bit startled to find that my most popular posts were those written two years back. This was the case last year as well, and it feels a bit weird to me that people are reading such old posts, when I have moved on so much from my old blogging style (or at least I think I have). I mean one of my most popular posts is about a coffee shop I went to in 2010, the coffee shop doesn’t even exist any more!! So strange.
Apart from that, the report is a nice little pat on the back for all WordPress bloggers and I love that WordPress does this each year to remind us about blogging milestones.
About 2013 blogging goals…well, I have one, but so far it seems so out there, so out of my league, that I am not even going to talk about it in this post. It’s something I have been thinking about for a while, but if and when I eventually get around to accomplishing it, I will definitely point to this post and say, hey…I achieved my goal after all.
So what are you planning for your blog in 2013? Or for your life? I have made tons of resolutions but those need an entirely new post.
And hey, here’s wishing you a very happy and joyful 2013.
