2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 170,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 3 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!

In 2012, there were 280 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 873 posts. There were 19 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 2 MB. That’s about 2 pictures per month.

The busiest day of the year was October 3rd with 1,157 views. The most popular post that day was It’s not really your money if you’re in debt.

    I had to reread it but I do really like your debt post- everyone else seems to, too. I also really liked your LV and MMM post, or was that this year already.

    But variety is the spice of life and I like that you guys post about a lot of different things. Food, ambition, kids, mortgage, ‘funny’ people at work…

    Thanks and here’s to a great 2013.

    :) I make top 5 commentor and then it won’t let me comment on your baby sleep post. Go figure! ;)

      Yeah, I didn’t want to get into a big argument about the science of sleep training. Still don’t.

      • hush Says:

        That was a great post. Amen to all of it!

      • nicoleandmaggie Says:

        We finally did get a couple of candidates who weren’t scary and said they liked kids, and add/drop is over so hopefully it is too late to suddenly discover they have a required course they have to take this semester instead of working during my days home with the baby. Whew.

        Alright, I thought it was my computer. I cleared my cookies and stuff that I normally do when it won’t let me log in to things. Glad it wasn’t me! Just wanted to say I really liked the post is all!

      • nicoleandmaggie Says:

        To be honest, I was all surprised when I noticed the “allow comments” button was unchecked (2 days after the posting– it has been a crazy week). So then I turned them on, figuring days had passed and nobody would notice. And then I got a really long comment that deserved a really long reply that I did not want to make and I remembered why I must have turned off the comments to begin with. So I turned them back off. Sorry!

        We probably won’t be having any deliberately controversial posts until summer! This semester is killing me.

        Dude. I need to drink all the coffee before posting comments. Life not lief. Goodness.
