Okay, I finally received the annual report published by WordPress for my blog’s performance for 2014.  It was published late compared to the three other blogs that I maintain here. Every year since it started in 2011, I look forward to it.  I am  curious  how my blogs performed the past year. It gives you a glimpse of what blog post garnered the most like and the number of comments in one particular post. Here it is.

Madison Square Garden can seat 20,000 people for a concert. This blog was viewed about 64,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Madison Square Garden, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

There were 312 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 205 MB. That’s about 6 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was September 8th with 2,045 views. The most popular post that day was Happy Birthday MAMA MARY.

This is a bit lower than what I got for the year 2013. No big deal though, at least I earned more friends in the process.

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 71,000 times in 2013. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 3 days for that many people to see it.

In 2013, there were 240 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 1,361 posts. There were 380 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 239 MB. That’s about a picture per day.

The busiest day of the year was September 8th with 2,889 views. The most popular post that day was Happy Birthday MAMA MARY.

Don’t be surprised, that blog I had of Mama Mary was three years ago but I get elated every time September 08 comes and the views get crazy :). I always tell myself, maybe it’s Mama Mary’s way of showing me how much I am loved.

Thank you WordPress, I love this ❤

Gosh, thank you to all my readers out there! You make me proud to think that somehow, I am making sense here. It makes me happy that somehow, you’ve been touched by my thoughts and ramblings.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

If you’re reading this I would love to thank you  from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for all your wonderful comments and likes to my posts. It is so amazing to know that you find something interesting here. I learned that sharing one’s stories takes more courage than I expect  but the good feeling that you have touched someone lingers longer than the next post.

I tried taking a screen shot of my blog stats. You are part of it. Thank you.

My blog stats say I have 250,038  views right this moment. I can’t believe it. I’ve been blogging for a  little more than four years now, on and off, when I feel like it and have something to share. The only time I blogged religiously every day was when I took up the 2011 WordPress Post A Day challenge. That was when my stats started to climb. For the last three years, I always get a surprise when one particular blog registers an average of 2,600 views in one day and that is during Mama Mary’s birthday every September 08.  I don’t know how it happens but the search engine seems to be busy during Mama Mary’s birthday.

I wonder though which is better, having so many views in any particular day or having a lot of followers. A bit of both probably, I don’t know. I only have 678 followers at the moment  (not that I mind so much if they follow me or not). There must be something they like about my blog so they read it.  I am glad that some readers come back  and read my older posts.  Sharing my plight as a cancer patient/survivor has definitely evolved to some sort of an online diary – some experiments in the kitchen, some shots that I love to share, my garden blooms that get the largest share in my SD card, local places I’ve been to the past few years, books I’ve read and reviewed,  thoughts and prayers. Imagine having a hodgepodge of topics encapsulated in 1,393 posts.

You ask, “Is it worth it?” My answer is a big “YES, definitely”.
