Such a cheesy title to a blog post. But that’s all right. What’s Dec 31 without a little cheese? I always end the year with a good spinach-artichoke-cheese dip anyways. Come to think of it, I usually back up that dip with a good chili-cheese dip as well. So there!
2014 has been a busy and rewarding year blogging for me. I got a post up every single day of the year with only one exception. The posts have been varied. They’ve been about writing, history, drama, culture, life. (Hey, isn’t that the subtitle of my website? Wow, I must be paying attention!) My biggest post of the year was about the French Revolution. Gotta love all those school kids writing research papers!
And while my website/blog is still small in modest in almost every way possible, it’s been fun to see the increased traffic and interest in many of the topics I’ve approached. Actually, when I compare the numbers with 2013, some great strides have been made:
- I’ve had quadruple the ‘likes’ in 2014 as in 2013.
- I’ve had three times as many visitors in 2014 as compared to 2013.
- And 2.8 times as many views in 2014 as compared with 2013.
Sept – Dec 2014 have been my four biggest months ever in terms of visitors and views.
I’m really grateful to everyone who has followed the blog or just popped on over through a random Google search. I’ve appreciated every comment, share, click, link and any other applicable verb which was committed on my site.
2015 promises to be a lot of fun. I’m hoping to have some announcements soon about some new contributors to the site, and I’m also hoping to expand the site to include regular book reviews as well.
Thanks for a great year, and I wish you and yours a very happy New Year!
