2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. Nothing impressive, except how WordPress has made it look 🙂

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,100 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 4 years to get that many views.

A milestone, literally.

One of my objectives after starting my blog was to get my words across the “www” to as many people as possible. No, I don’t claim to have great blogs which thousands should read everyday (though that be nice!). 1000 views by end of 2012 was my target. And after being a lazy slob and not writing anything for a couple of months, voila, 1000 turned up! It’s definitely a good feeling and drives me to write and share more. It also gives me a better idea of how powerful a blog can actually be. There are the insanely awesome ones which are folowed by thousands and millions of people. It goes to show the incredible power of the internet and how ideas can spread like wildfire through it. Think Egypt, think fundraising for charities supporting various causes, think viral videos, Justin Bieber and what not!

I need a new target now. Maybe 5000 views and “x” number of subscribers by the end of 2012.
