Apparently today is my blogiversary. I tend to forget anniversaries, but WordPress reminded me.
This was my first ever post:
I am now on WordPress but this is not a blog, just an info page. If you want to follow me regularly, you can do that on me + richard where I post my *ooof* series of picture analyses every week. See you there, Guylty ❤
To this: In the past eight years I have apparently written a total of 857,318 words in 1,366 individual blog posts.
If only I could focus such literary energy on something that made me rich and famous… My blog posts have been viewed 711,453 times with a total of 132,399 visitors. Which brings me to the point of the whole thing. A blog only works if it has readers. Well, that’s my opinion of it – because I enjoy the interaction with other people. So when I write something, I like to hear what other people think about a) the topic I have chosen and b) my opinion on that topic. So thank you for not only reading here but also engaging in discussion, arguments and lots of silliness.
*Your* most-viewed blog post of the past eight years is last year’s “Richard Goes Charity“. Not much writing there on my part, but one wonders whether the *real* attraction is the smiling young man in the accompanying photos… 2,429 views.
Surprisingly, the above-mentioned post did not attract the highest number of comments, though. That award goes to a rather inconspicuous post from almost exactly two years ago, entitled Quick Mid-Week Mix, which contained spoilers for the third season of BS. 346 comments.
Your favourite reason to visit my blog remain the weekly round-ups, though, at least judging by these stats:
So there we have it. Another year done. Thanks for reading here. Time to adjust the badge.
