Happy New Year! And welcome 2013!
This is my annual end-of-the-year/beginning-of-the-year review post. I don’t really expect anyone else to find it interesting. In the past I crunched a lot of numbers manually from the wordpress stats page on my dashboard. This year, wordpress has made a very nice review page. Click on the picture above or the link below. Here’s an excerpt:
4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 24,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 6 Film Festivals
Of course, I still had to crunch the numbers. It’s amazing to me that with only 19 posts written in 2012 that the blog still received 24,000 views. I’m hoping to be a bit more regular in my posting in 2013. Of course that’s what I hoped last year. If you follow the blog, you know that in April of 2012 I tried the A-to-Z blog challenge. I fizzled out somewhere around P and didn’t write again until December. So much for the discipline of writing everyday improving my blog.
So, without further ado, here is the list of the top 10-posts viewed in 2012.
Thanks to all of you who have been reading!
I am constantly surprised by the country stats from the blog. WordPress recorded visitors from 134 countries last year. That’s 65% of the nations in the world! I broke down the top 25 countries by # of visits last year.

So thanks to everyone from around the globe for stopping by. My goal for 2013 is to generate more discussion on the blog … despite a high number of views, there are still very few comments. It would be great to see some international dialogue taking place in this kind of forum. Time will tell. And speaking of time … here’s to a good 2013!
