2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 24,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 9 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Click here to see the complete report.

Oh my goodness – 24,000 is a really big number!

  • If I traveled 24,000 miles, I could just about go all the way around the world
  • If I lived another 24,000 days, I would be over 120 years old
  • If I grew 24,000 inches, I would be 2000 feet tall

Thank you, everyone, for visiting and commenting and sharing my posts.

I’m looking forward to 2014!

  2. I love getting this annual report! So much fun… I had a big day today, when I hit 2,000 followers! I was so excited, I did happy dances around the kitchen. Great photo of you and your grandson and daughter (?)… just wonderful! All the best in 2014, Vivian!


  3. 24000 is a huge number! Congratulations on your huge success, Vivian. I love that WordPress gives you a summary. Too bad I have Blogger. Anyway, happy new year to you and your beautiful family!
