I’ve been blogging for three years and managed to stay under the radar as far as WordPress.com was concerned. Then, for some unknown reason, my stealth radar shield was deactivated. The WordPress stats helper monkeys swooped in, sucked up all my blog’s pertinent data, and compiled an annual report.
I won’t burden you with the full report, but here is the stats monkeys cleverly worded comparison:
4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 31,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 7 Film Festivals
I’ve never been to Cannes, but I’ve bought a few DVD’s from Costco. Comparing my blog views to the DVD sales stats for Costco wouldn’t have made me feel very successful though.
The report also lists the people who comment most on my blog. Here they are, and I would like to thank each and every one of them for their many visits. I know I’m not a top commenter on their blogs, but if it is any consolation, I am not the top commenter any where!
- 1 pouringmyartout – He just turned one – well his blog did!
- 2 Mark Armstrong – The power of cartoons!
- 3 Lorna’s Voice – She is everywhere in the blogosphere, so you probably already know her.
- 4 magsx2 – Travels all the way from Australia to visit my blog.
- 5 E.C. – Blogging for two years, and still going strong.
That pretty much wraps up this year. I expect my radar shields will reactivate shortly and my blog will return to stealth mode. Happy New Year!
