The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 47,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 11 Film Festivals
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 26,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
I was farting around on Facebook because one of my friends sent me a link to his page DAN NATION . ORG APP on FACEBOOK. I really like his theme, but he is on a self hosted blog with a downloaded theme that isn’t available on WordPress.com, so I went into the database to find something new to spruce up the blog.
I came across a theme called “Modularity” a photo specific theme with all kinds of bells and whistles. It comes with a grungy dark look, which I kinda like. I have been through a dark theme stint before, but this theme has integrated headers and other little additions which make it unique. You will find that a slide show of featured images will appear on the blog from time to time. I like that feature.
So with a new year, we start with a new theme. I hope that you will continue to come and read, I am looking forwards to the next chapter of life as it comes.
Stick around for the ride… you might miss something if you don’t.
Sunday 9 p.m.
I spoke to the service team here at WordPress over the weekend about switching my domain from the old site to this one, and voila they got the job done for me. We also got word from several of the generator sites over the weekend that the blog has been approved across the board and traffic has spiked in the last 24 hours up to numbers that we used to get on the old site.
We are now operating at optimum speed and everything is up and running across the board. All my link sites are connected, the domain is redirecting traffic to this site and I could not be more happy.
Last night I got showered and dressed and bundled up for a trip to Verdun for a meeting, walking all the way to the train station and taking a train down into Verdun only to find when I got there that the meeting was canceled. That was a waste of time and effort.
Tonight I got out to Sunday Nighter’s for the literature discussion meeting and that went well. We read from Living Sober, and eliminating self pity. We had a lively discussion on the topic.
I decided not to stay for the speaker meeting. I instead had to stop by the store to get dinner for tonight, the IGA doesn’t stay open after 9 so I got that done on the way back.
Another week is about to begin. Yay …
