The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. And while I am grateful for those brilliant helper monkeys and their ceaseless ability to make the technology useful to us lay-people, it’s really YOU, the readers who are the heroes here.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 9,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 15 years to get that many views.
So who are the readers?
Readers come from the U.S. and 107 other countries. Wow. Now, that’s global.
Most are parents.
Many are teachers.
Loads are other writers.
Several are at least two of these.
What did readers really, really like?
Posts that talk about what we want in our kids and what speak to the everyday joys amd challenges.
The most viewed post captured both of these is 6 Steps to Build Perseverance
With the new year here, I look forward to bringing you more stories and strategies to help navigate and celebrate children, parenting, and teaching. In the weeks to come, I’ll be letting you in on what I have in store. Meanwhile- I wish you the best in 2013 and hope you’ll keep coming back to Wonder of Children!
