2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 25,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 9 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Click here to see the complete report.

This came through a couple of days ago… I don’t think it’s a very accurate report – do you? 🙂

    What a load of bolleaux! The cherished regulars will be shocked, nay insulted!👎

    That’s what I thought!

    It does not bother me a lot if it is accurate or not, I hope you do not pay for such nonsense, but there are obviously system administrators of WordPress, who need to justify their existence. Whereever I worked in the IT departments this kind of tasks was given to employees who were a failure, but to keep them busy. Lol

    The database must be corrupted if this intern manages to avoid finding out the real history. It reminds me of the Oklahoma days at the Big House. 😱

    Well, at least we know that your historical posts were popular. When will you treat us to another?

    You old tease, Sipu! Patience is a boring virtue.

    One cannot begin even to fathom the enormity of the toss I do not give regarding this WordPress report. I despair it is increasingly indicative of the Faceache generation that pointless gobbets and shallow bolleaux masquerade as valid research and/or constructive input.

    As my dear old boss back in the seventies once said to me about a not very respected rival, “My boy, you could wade through his deepest thoughts without getting your ankles wet.”

    This is the third topic so far this year which has seriously frizzed my fur and it’s only the 2nd January.

    Good morning Janus. Patience is a boring virtue and I lack it in spades!
    Altogether now,
    “What do we want?”
    “A history blog.”
    “When do we want it?”

    Unfortunately your demand conflicts with my Resolutions:

    1. No instant blogging on demand.
    2. Wait for others with patience.

    Janus – I like that, what you say, I realise more and more that there are many timewasters on the blogs and why would they not be, as they exist ‘in real life’. Instant blogging, in my view is a vice. The very demanding activity of partaking in a good conversation and of exprsssing your view to an interesting topic is totally different to coming up with emotional claptrap and/or statements of non-value, but requires some thinking and preparedness to learn from others. Who would want to admit that?

    FoE, I have to confess my Resolutions materialised as a riposte to my old sparring partner Sipu!

    Sometimes there’s enormous pleasure to be derived from blogging-from-the-hip! 😎
