2015 in review (from WordPress)

WordPress generated an automatic year end summary of traffic to this blog. See below.

As we start 2016, I’ve been blogging at least once per day for just under two years now, 730+ days straight.

It may not be good, but it keeps coming!

The traffic data is pretty spotty.  I know that it can’t accurately count anyone (such as me) blocking cookies and otherwise declining to be tracked.

Overall readership is up a bit, possibly in the tens of viewers.  I can see a very definite “long tail” effect: something like half the hits are dribs and drabs on old posts from the last three years.

The most visited category must surely be things tagged ‘book review’, which have also generated likes and followers, though some of these look like bots to me.

Anyway, if my love of reading in any way reaches other readers, I’m good with that.

So let me say “thanks” to any readers out there.  Feel free to ping me if you like something or have something you want to tell me.




The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 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 13,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
