The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
Madison Square Garden can seat 20,000 people for a concert. This blog was viewed about 66,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Madison Square Garden, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
We have grown in our separate ways through the year, but yet grown closer because of the hard work and self discovery a Project 365 creates. They have been incredible supporters and amazing inspiration during this journey, and for that I am eternally grateful for their friendship.
But the journey wouldn’t have meant anything if it wasn’t for the dedicated readers and followers of Hoofbeats & Footprints. Because of your likes and comments I was able to learn what people are more interested in seeing and reading. There are few outstanding followers and commenters that deserve an incredible THANK YOU for all of the support and encouragement.
In particular, one reader stands out: Quiet Solo Pursuits is a kindred spirit that wanders the earth in search of natural beauty in his surroundings. Somehow he managed to keep up with my daily posts and faithfully commented.
But he’s not the only one that kept me motivated. “The Seeker” and then the black duck Le Drake Noir came in second and third, with Rebecca of Clanmother came in a close fourth.
Let’s not forget the marsh and the beautiful birds and jurassic park style alligators that Phil Lanoue shares on his blog.
How these people managed to be such wonderful bloggers and still keep up with other people’s blogs astounds me. How I wish I had the time and energy they have to be so supportive and creative as they have been this past year.
There are so many others to thank that I don’t know where to even start. You know who you are. You’ve become wonderful friends and great commenters and I am so fortunate to have you in here.
I’d like to extend a New Year’s Day gift to the first five people that would like an 8 x 10 print of their choice from this year’s images. Just drop a line and we’ll get it worked out.
Even though 2013 is officially over, as you can tell there were days I took off during the year, so there are twelve more days left of my Project 365. I’ll keep trucking for the next two weeks. And after that? Who knows what will happen.
HAPPY NEW YEAR !! Bella
