I read recently that the end of the year is simply a convention, and December 31st merely a day certain Roman bureaucrats picked. Nevertheless, this feels like the end of something, and I feel myself lying fallow in the bare field of year-end’s. Hopefully, new shoots are growing underground. But I am just allowing this quiet, relatively uncreative time to happen, doing little writing exercises in books, spending time with friends, and playing games.
Fortunately, WordPress sent me my annual report today, so I am posting the start of it here. This blog had 31,000 views this year. The majority of readers came from the US, Taiwan, and the UK. Thank you to every eye that saw and index finger that clicked.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 31,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 11 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
