AmberIAm 2018 in Review

Hey, remember at the beginning of the month when I said that every post I wrote this month would mention how I couldn’t believe the year had gone by so quickly? Now, I get to say it one last time for 2018! I can’t believe it’s almost 2019!!!

Last year, I did a year in review post to show how the ol’ blog space had performed over the prior 365 days. I liked that idea enough to do it again this year, so here we go!

Total blog views : 3,463 – an improvement from last year! It’s small, but I’ll take it!

Most active 2018 month based on views : February (839) – not bad for the shortest month of the year!

AmberIAm 2017 in Review

My work colleague posted a year in review on his blog, and I liked the format, so I decided to shamelessly copy him…except without the big numbers. Jacksonian history is a happening topic evidently! 😉

2015 in review

Happy 2016! I went back to work today, so that’s the sign that the holidays are officially over. See you again in 11.5 months, Christmas break!

2015 had a lot of ups and downs for us, but we survived, and I’m looking forward to seeing what 2016 holds for us.

WordPress put together a 2015 annual report that I wanted to share for any super fans who are really interested in reading about the behind-the-scenes world of the blog. Enjoy!

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,200 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 20 trips to carry that many people.
