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 49,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 11 Film Festivals
–This blog had a high of 3,838 views on May 8th. If each view were a Twinkie, every view would be inside my belly right now.
—My most popular search word was Friends. So I plan on using the Friends show and/or Jennifer Aniston’s boobs as a tag for all future posts.
—I wrote over 100 posts this past year. Much better than the previous two years where I averaged only 30 posts for the entire year. Looks like the key to blogging success is to actually blog, who knew?
—My top commenter was Pegoleg of Peg-o-leg’s Ramblings with 296 comments.
So I’d like to take this moment to say:
I LOVE YOU, PEG! Deeply, truly, madly.
And there’s still time for you to leave, say, four more comments so I can get a nice round number of 300.
—Maybe it’s the Big Ball Drop tonight…maybe it’s the champagne already going to my head…but I tend to get all sentimental when the number on the calendar changes year after year. I’d like to say a sincere thank you to everyone that visits my blog. I wouldn’t still be doing this if it wasn’t for your constant positive support. You’ve all given me confidence in my writing I didn’t know I had. And I know, I’m being serious and it’s making everyone a bit uncomfortable, but that’s the truth. (sniffing, wiping a tear) I love you, man!
Happy New Year! Have a toast on me tonight at midnight because I will be already passed out on the couch, drooling onto my bathrobe.
