2102 Year in Blogging Annual Review

I received my 2102 Year in Blogging Annual Review from WordPress today. According to WordPress:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 77,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

In 2012, there were 365 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 1,099 posts. There were 358 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 53 MB. That’s about 7 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was December 3rd with 1,683 views. The most popular post that day was Thirty-Two Months of Grief.

These are the posts that got the most views in 2012 (Some of your most popular posts were written before 2012. Your writing has staying power! Consider writing about those topics again):

  1. Sex With Sister Tips. Um…Yeah (July 2009)
  2. Describing a Winter Scene (February 2008)
  3. How Many Books Are Going to be Published in 2012? (Prepare for a Shock) (April 2012)
  4. Describing a Scene in an Interesting Way (November 2007)
  5. Meaningful Names (December 2008)

    Wonderful blog! How did you get so many views? Please let me know.

    • Pat Bertram Says:

      By having a wonderful blog! Well, I don’t know how wonderful it is, but I do work at it. I try to write articles that are at once informative, personal, and well-written, editing them until they are as perfect as possible. I blog every day, which logically gets me more views than someone who blogs once a week. It’s sort of surprising that I do get views since I don’t write the sort of controversial, titillating, or humorous articles that go viral. And I use the “share” capacities of WordPress to help spread the word.

  4. Aaron Paul Lazar Says:

    Congratulations, my friend. You are the most prolific, dedicated blogger I know! I’m so proud of how you have handled your loss and of your great big strong heart.
