Don’t worry my Random Thoughts will return next week as usual, but I did find a very useful end-of-year report program from JetPack which tells a lot about my site and what has happened over the past year.
If you wish to read the entire Canadian Personal Finance 2012 End of Year Blog Report , I have included a direct link to it here.
I will include excerpts from this report for your perusal
19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform.
This blog was viewed about 120,000 times in 2012.
If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it. Somehow this comparison doesn’t do it for me, now if you were talking about a Metallica Concert or maybe the Rolling Stones, then I’d be impressed.
In 2012, there were 299 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 1,795 posts.
The busiest day of the year was July 4th with 1,357 views. The most popular post that day was What does the 4th of July Mean?.
This report only shows data since you connected Jetpack.
