It’s New Year’s Eve Eve and everyone seems to be reflecting on the year (almost) passed. I know you’ll probably already have read a bazillion year in review posts and articles but you haven’t read one from me yet, so hold on to your hats. Actually, it’s not going to be that exciting, but I’m going to write it anyway.
People love reading year in review stuff. We eat that shit up. It’s partly because we’re nosy as a species and want to know what everyone else has been up to and partly because we get real reflective about this time of year and we like to look back at all the shit we did/read/talked about over the past 365 days.
This year, I started a blog. Or, to be more precise, I started regularly writing in my already-created blog. It’s been a wild ride. I’ve had over 12,000 views and almost 10,000 visitors from all over the world. I even had a post go viral-ish (by Maritime standards) with 3,500 views in a single day. Even for well established blogs, that’s crazy stats. I would like to thank everyone who read, liked, shared and commented on any of my posts in 2015. Here’s to many more in 2016!
I’m recapping my blogging year with my top 5 posts of 2015. Thanks for reading, see you in the new year!
