2019 Stats

In 2019 I published 49 posts and had over 2,000 visitors, which is around 500 more than the year before. Pretty impressive since I only really started this for a small group of family and friends to read while I was on a working holiday in Canada back in 2010.

My posting hasn’t been as regular as the year before though and I am horribly behind (I’m starting to publish trips I went on in the summer and have lots more to go) but I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things for 2020. I haven’t talked about this anywhere on social media but around this time last year my Dad was diagnosed with cancer. Thanks to the wonderful work of the staff at Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham he’s now cancer free and doing exceptionally well but the first half of the year was pretty stressful and travel was the last thing on my mind and then as he got the all clear getting away for a bit on my own was a nice stress reliever, but as always left me with lots of photos to organise and places of interest to research.

I’m tentatively thinking of doing a bit less travelling this year in order to save for a big trip in 2021, though I do already have a few overnight stays planned and with my current backlog you probably won’t notice!

So, what are your 2020 travel plans? More travel, less travel? Any special place you want to visit?

2012 In Review

The last time I did this, WordPress emailed me my stats information and automatically did a piechart. I guess they don’t do that, anymore? Anyway, stats are always fun, so without further ado…

In 2012 there were 13 new posts, making 63 in total. Which clearly means I need to make more of a concerted effort to go more places and blog about them this year.
