Blog In Review – 2013

Flowers for Mom

At the end of every year, WordPress provides me an annual report on this blog. Frankly, this year’s report is a little disappointing. Hits are down from last year, only 41K, down from last year’s 50K. Another disappointing aspect of this report is that all of the most popular posts are from past years. The suggestion form WordPress is to revisit these topics.

Happy Birthday to Me

The busiest day of the year was May 12th (Mother’s Day) with 1,227 views. The most popular post that day was M Is for the Many things she gave me … If you Google this song, then you’ll find this post is number one on the search list.

These two animated GIFs ( Are they pronounced gifts or jiffs?) are both somewhat derivative, in that I’ve taken and modified someone else’s work. I fashioned the Angry Birds GIF in PhotoShop using graphics from the game. It was paired with a Youtube video entitled Angry Birds Over Libya in this post. I think that it is so popular, because Darrell Issa must be clicking on it all day.

Thanks are again offered to Kayak Woman over at Ababsurdo, my biggest referer, even beating out Google+. I don’t get near enough comments, but I should thank Jane, my top commenter. Wait, stop the presses, I just realized that DogMomster and kkfin are the same person and if you sum those two then I find that we have a perfect tie for top commenter. Wait, wait, we have a tie breaker, today, after the WordPress tabulation and before the end of the year DogMomster put in a tie breaking comment and is the top commenter!
