2012 in review.


It’s been an incredible year here at Journey to Who I Want to Be.

And I say that like it’s a big production.  We all know it’s really just me and Matilda here, which makes one live person.  One of my favorites parts of being on WordPress is that the “monkeys” (I have no idea why they call it that) at WordPress prepare a year-end report about each blog.  There’s a small excerpt from it below, and you can click the link to see the rest.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 7,100 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 12 years to get that many views.

The big numbers are all very exciting.  It’s incredible to me how effectively the internet can bring people from all over the world together.  You have something in common with people in 52 countries of the world – this blog here.

I’d just like to take this opportunity to thank you all for reading.  And not just for reading, but for your kind words as well.  Many of you have told me how much you enjoy reading my posts, and each time it affirms my calling.  I’m so thankful to you.

WordPress put together a list of the top 5 most popular posts, but for tomorrow, I’m going to give you my top 5 favorite posts – the ones that were most exciting to write, the ones that hold the most meaning to me.

In the meantime, I’m curious.  Do you have any favorites?  Comment with a link if you do.

And thank you again, all you wonderful readers.

2011 in review


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for my blog, how nice of them!  Take a look and see what we’re accomplished together.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,300 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 55 trips to carry that many people.
