SO–Howdja do in your review?

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

With the semester ending or about to, grades come to mind.  The old “Whatdja get?” question comes up, which is either exhilerating or embarrassing.  Having just posted some stats from my one year anniversary, I thought it appropriate to add as a post script the more official WP version.  We are all going to be getting our Blog Report Cards, and they are so graphically pleasing to boot.   Doesn’t WordPress make you feel special?  I wish all their stat monkeys happiness and hope they get some time off for their excellent work.

So howdja do in 2012? Here’s an excerpt form mine (I have no shame, I know):

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 7,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 12 years to get that many views.

*What a nice way of saying, “Umm, not too impressive in view numbers, but nice try.”  Thanks, WP.  What can I say?  I don’t Facebook, Tweet, Pin, Link, or other social mediatize.  I’m happy with those who find me on WP.  But you’ll raise your blog traffic! I know, I know. Here’s the deal–I’d rather spend those minutes writing another blog post instead of promoting the one I just wrote. 



Gene Kelly said it best in Singing in the Rain: Gotta dance.  Okay, he would have said, “Gotta Write!” except he loved dancing more.

Speaking of anniversaries–I celebrate another one on January 1–yup, the MEPA and I will be celebrating one plus thirty.  One of these days we’ll get that Hawaiian cruise going; for now it’s staycation with a side of a splendorific weekend ala Marriott.


Happy New Year Blogger Buds

  1. Haha, I got the Everest thing as well, I enjoy the positive spins they attempt. I sense that next year will be a much richer year though!

  2. Happy New Year! Keep up the book boosting 😉

  3. I’m too old and too grumpy to get a school report, so I said “pah” to it and had another mince pie. HNY x

  4. I wonder if I got my report card, but overlooked it. Oh dear. Gotta go find it. Happy New Year, CricketMuse and keep up the blogging.
