The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
The busiest day of the year – with 2573 views – was when Nina Rousseau’s story on “Zone 2 dining” ran in the Epicure section of The Age. As a precaution against being ribbed over being a western suburbs blogger who just happened to write about non-western suburbs subjects, I posted “Westies abroad …”!
Here’s an excerpt:
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 200,000 times in 2013. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 9 days for that many people to see it.
Interesting stats, Kenny, particularly which posts were most popular. How did you get this report? They haven’t sent me one—or is it only if you’re over a certain number of views? I certainly have nowhere near 200,000!
You’ll get yours, I’m sure! Always fun to read the stats! Funny thing about the seafood extender and prawn cracker stories – for off-the-cuff posts they’re real stayers!
Yes, it is funny—but they WERE fascinating posts.
Congratulations and Happy New Year!
