Where does time go?
This year my post comes from North America where the landscape is covered with snow. We have another 10 days here before we return to Australia.
MiP (MYSTERIES in PARADISE) will have been around for just on 5 years in a couple of days time. I created it as the result of a resolution on New Year's Eve 2007.
Some statistical reflections.
- I've read 142 books this year, not quite as many as I had hoped, but still a respectable number. This brings my total since I have begun to keep records (1975) to an even 3302 in the last 38 years.
- I've written 350 blog posts on MiP this year, an decrease of 100 on last year. I reached some milestones: 643 book reviews added in 5 years, 2400 blog posts, and over 8000 comments.
- According to my main counter about 100,000 visitors have come to my blog this year, an increase of about 1,000 a month.
- I have participated in a number of reading challenges this year and am still thinking about which ones I will participate in next year. I hosted the 2012 Global Reading Challenge (and will run it again in 2013) and ran the Crime Fiction Alphabet.
- I also continued with my Agatha Christie Reading Challenge and the monthly Agatha Christie Blog Carnival
So farewell the old year with gusto, and think about those New Year's resolutions!
