2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. It’s nice feedback and, though I really started this blog to explore my own thinking, it’s nice to think that it’s sometimes of interest to others.  Thanks everyone who’s read, or commented this year. Happy New Year!

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 3,900 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 7 years to get that many views.

2011: The year of blogging in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,100 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

Poetry Pages Updated

I spent a day or so over the cold mid-year break moving my poetry home page from an HTML based construction I’d created myself to the same sort of WordPress platform that this blog runs on. You might not notice much difference; the address and much of the content remain the same but it might mean that I’m able to concentrate more on the content, and less on getting the back-end all working correctly. I learned a fair bit about how to use Dreamweaver, and how to write HTML but I’d rather be coding the poetry itself. For the record, this is what the old poetry page looked like on the day I closed it down and moved it across.

The new poetry page is at http://warrickwynne.org/


2010 in review

The good people at WordPress just sent me through the stats for this blog for the year. It’s funny that the top post this year was the ‘Nude Mirror Exercise’; maybe some people just accidentally found themselves here! I hope if you’re new here you find something interesting. Twelve full 747s hey! That’s a lot of interest in poetry!

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!
