The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog. It always amuses me that my most popular post — for two years in a row — was that article on the 2012-2013 première episode of Criminal Minds. But my analysis shows that though they don’t get viral numbers, other pieces have done well — and have had a surprisingly long shelf life, with people searching them out and reading them long after initial publication. It’s been a fun 22 months with Serendipity. Now, with Rich Paschall aboard and maybe about to have a little more written input from our own Garry Armstrong, we’ll be even better in 2014.

Hope you’ve having a great New Year … and keep having it for years to come.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 78,000 times in 2013. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 3 days for that many people to see it.

  4. Happy New Year to you and keep posting!
    I have joined the ever-growing ranks of people on the forums who didn’t get an annual report, so hopefully mine will turn up at some point.


    • They seem to be automatically generated. So maybe it’s lost somewhere in cyberspace and will eventually find its way to you? Fortunately, you can reconstruct the information (and more) from your stats, but without the pretty package 🙂 It’s New Year’s Day. The freezer is empty (I wonder how that happened while we were away?), we’re out of half-and-half and I got a bill for a doctor’s visit I never made. Happy New Year to me! I need coffee!! (My cure-all.)


  5. Wow! That’s an achievement in itself! Congratulations.
