It’s that time again when WordPress releases those magical little fairies to dazzle up reports for us on our blogs in the year prior. These are not just reports to me, but stories on the unseen joys of blogging. Below is the short story (aka report) for my personal blog, Amalia Vida. The numbers and stats are exciting because they represent the people, readers and fellow-bloggers, who brought it all about.
I want to extend my heartfelt thanks for all of you that make my blog possible and growing. Thank you for reading and following, liking and commenting, for sharing and just simply taking the time to check it out and enjoy. I greatly appreciate you and hope you continue on with me into this new, exciting year, of 2014.
Happy New Year of creative blogging fun!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,200 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
Change is good. It keeps things fresh…so the time has come to change the tagline on my blog. This blog (Amalia Vida), is my personal blog out of two blogs that I have. The other one is my travel blog called Amalia Travel. Since I started Amalia Vida two years ago, the tagline has been Life is for Experiencing. I still like that to this day and it’s meaning remains true for me. It always will, really. Yet I wanted to expand on it…to capture a bit more…more of what I’ve learned, what I feel now…all those wonderful things that we grow in on our journey through this life.
Here is where I’m going with my new tagline. I like to talk in stories, so please keep reading. It’s like getting a surprise at the end. Who doesn’t like that? Continue reading →
Even the smallest of achievements are worth being recognized and celebrated. When we practice gratitude for small achievements, which I believe play an essential role in “large” achievements, we’re extending the power of that accomplishment. Picture the ripple effect…that drop of water into a smooth, still body of liquid. Ripple after ripple is created and it extends further and further out. All it takes is just that one little drop.
I just wanna give a great big shout of THANKS to all of you who follow my blog! There is nothing like getting that WordPress notification email telling me another person in the world has chosen to follow my writings. It means a lot. What I really love and am touched by, is how much we all have in common just through the pure, privileged joy of reading. Think about it…there are still countless numbers of people in this world who are growing up without the skills to read!
With that in mind, I’m glad that we’re all enjoying the community of reading and writing. Thanks for being a part of it and for following my blog(s). I love the comments and interaction I receive from you when you share a post I’ve written, show that you like it, leave a comment, or all the above. I learn a lot from your interaction and my blogging is that much more enhanced and growing because of you! Really…my blog would not be where it is now, without YOU!
So THANK YOU! I look forward to continuing on this blogging journey together.
I’m a pretty open person and happy for that quality. With that in mind, I want to post my Blog site stats from this past year for all to see and to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has visited my blog and read my posts! It could not have been possible or as wonderfully enjoyable without all of you. Hope to see even more of you in 2013. Let the blogging fun continue!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 3,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get that many views.
