WordPress has now sent the 2012 blog stats to its users. Allow me to share.
Whatever Works is into its fourth year; my first post went up in September of 2009. (Here it is.)
Since then, there have been 213,000 unique views. They came from 174 countries.
Here’s the history:
- 2009 (partial year) – 4900
- 2010 – 35,000
- 2011 – 63,000
- 2012 – 110,000
And there have been 2800 posts generating 20,000 comments.
As nice as this is, smug satisfaction from your bloghost is tempered by a less than glorious fact: the most viewed Whatever Works post of all time was, well, this. It got 2181 views because people were looking for that appalling photo. Humility is served.
I want to thank you all for visiting, for reading and for engaging in dialogue. Any blogger knows that over time, commenters become friends. And that’s the best part. Without you, this place is just noise. Just noise.
2013, here we come. . .
