Statistically, 2014 was a great year for my blogging efforts. I love seeing the numbers grow as more readers find me and love hearing from you with likes and comments.
WordPress has sent me the annual analysis of my blogging year and it’s an interesting read. I’m thrilled to have had around 22,000 views on A Glass Half Full this year, from readers in 129 countries. I now have 1180 followers and most of my readers – not surprisingly – are from Australia, with the USA and New Zealand not far behind. A very hearty thank you to you all. Your interest inspires me to keep writing.
This post is my 60th for 2014, and I’ve shared 638 images from my travels with you. The top-rating post of the year on A Glass Half Full was a recent one: Buying into the ‘burqua’ debate, which struck a chord with many readers.
My top travel posts of the year were all-Australian, and had a decidedly foodie bent. Readers were keen on the Tastes of Townsville, The Cake Shops of Acland Street (in the Melbourne suburb of St Kilda) and my Coastal Cruising on the Queen Mary 2.
In short, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my year’s blogging – and to talking blogging as well. After running a blogging seminar in Broome earlier this year, I’m now looking forward to sharing some of my blogging knowledge with others in a few weeks’ time, when I head to Camp Creative in Bellingen, New South Wales, to teach a five-day blogging workshop.
I wish all my readers a very happy and successful 2015 and look forward to sharing my stories and hearing from you here next year!
