I received a summary of my blog’s stats for 2011 from WordPress. I was amazed at how much I’d done but also how many people had taken the time and trouble to read the words I wrote and look at the pictures that I used as well as the videos.
I have recently retired from full-time employment and am looking to the future optimistically but with a sense of some concern given the events that we have all been through in 2011. One thing I do know is that I will continue blogging. I really get a buzz out of it and have thoroughly enjoyed trying to figure out what to write and how to present what I write.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my readers for their support and also the wonderful WordPress company that has provided me with a user-friendly format that has allowed me to concentrate on the content and the presentation of my work and not the logistics of how to code and upload it. The report is just one example where they have given valuable feedback. Their data is excellent and their ideas are continuous, what would I have done without them?
To WordPress and my readers: Have a great 2012.. here’s hoping that it is a year you will look back on with a sense of achievement in whatever it is you intend to do. Follow your passion and unleash your creativity, most importantly, do not forget your dreams… this could be the year that they come true!
So, without further ado, the summary of Malcolm Bellamy’s Lifelong Learning Blog for the calendar year of 2011:
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for the blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 15,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
