2015 in review

As they do each year, the WordPress.com stats ‘helper monkeys’ prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog. As long as they aren’t planning on taking over the writing I can live with that! This is the fourth of these I have now received, having started blogging in late 2012, and it seems right to keep the record updated. I have a number of thoughts for an end of year post, some of which have been prompted by the statistics in this report, but on balance I think it best to make that a separate post, which I will make either today or tomorrow. Watch this space!

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

2014 in review

As ever, WordPress have prepared a 2014 annual report for my blog. I’ve shared the previous two so am maintaining continuity with this one. Although total figures were slightly down on 2013 – I only managed to fill the Sydney Opera House 7 times this year, compared with 8 last year – I’m still very pleased that so many have taken the trouble to read some of my ramblings. Considering that I had a 7 month break from blogging I’m grateful to you all for staying with me. Thank You!!

I’m planning to be a little more regular with my blogging in the New Year and I hope that you’ll enjoy what I do. If so, please spread the word: tell all your friends and family! The more the merrier! All bloggers appreciate their readers – it’s good to have some validation of what we write – so I look forward to an ongoing virtual relationship with you all. Happy New Year!
