Good day, friends! Thank you all so much for your kind words yesterday. It really does mean a lot. Eventually, I will find time to go back and respond to each one of you. It’s been a bit crazy around here with family coming into town, and I’m sure it will only get crazier. But I wanted to stick to the schedule I’d planned out because this is important to me. So here we go!
One year ago today, I started blogging! If you read my 6-Month Blogiverary post, you can see the details of what got me going here on WordPress, but the short version is this: I was disappointed by Man of Steel, and I wanted to share that opinion with you fine people. The rest is history! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: deciding to blog was one of the best things I’ve ever decided to do. This place is awesome, writing every day is awesome, and you guys are especially awesome.
Anyway, today’s post is nothing super special. It’s very similar to my 6-Month post in that it shares some of my stats, but I also added in a few other bits as well–a few posts and/or bloggers that I wanted to point out. Read on if you’re curious. 🙂
Posts: 226 (More than double the number I had for my six-month post!)
Comments: 5,002 (Over FOUR TIMES MORE than what I had six months ago! Woah!)
Views: 28,029 (Again, over four times the views from six months ago! I am blown away!)
Followers: 271 (My loyal minions! You have more than doubled!)
My Readers Consist of…
51% Americans–a significant drop from the 71% of six months ago. What’s up, ‘Merica??
18% Brits–up from 15%! Jolly good!
4% Canadians–up from 1.8%, eh.
4% Germans–ach ja! Sehr gut, meinen freunden! You didn’t make the top four six months ago!
23% Hodgepodge–folks from allllll over!
