2012 in Review – Blog Stats

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for my blog. Having been blogging here for a good chunk of the year I found all this stuff interesting. My favorite stat is that people from 99 different countries came to my blog last year. Wow! The power of the internet to connect people from all over the world is way cool. 99 different countries to my tiny little blog. I’m looking forward to growing in 2013 and lots of new blogging adventures.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 6,700 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 11 years to get that many views.

From Felton Annual Report 2010

I came across a different way to tell someone’s life story recently and I had to share it here. From what I can gather Nicholas Felton puts together what he calls an “annual report” each year. For 2010 he put together the life of his father all presented in charts and graphs. It is a whole new way to look at life and the stories behind it. I want to use this concept in a project in the near future. I’m not sure which one yet but I’ll keep you posted. Maybe it will be a quick project for Mother’s Day.

Can you visualize a project that you could use this concept with? I’d love to hear about it.
