The WordPress.com stats analysts prepared a 2015 annual report for my blog (see below if you want to read the full report). I had fewer posts than last year, due to an increased work load, mostly journalism awards judging, grandchildren minding (a third grandchild was born in September!), and writing assignments for the Walkleys and the NSW Finance Department. And I decided I would only publish a post when I had something to say! But the good news is that the blog was viewed the same number of times in 2015, as it was in 2014. Thanks for your comments. One of my favourite (and most prolific) commentators was former Channel Nine editor, Steve “Slam” McQueen, who died last year. I wrote posts about him (May 31, 2015), my brother Jack and Sydney Swans legend, Adam Goodes (September 11, 2015), and my cousin Tom Gannon, who has just published a book of his poems I highly recommend (November 9, 2015). I have a couple of book reviews which I will publish soon (as soon as I finish reading the books!) Hope you all have a Sweet Sixteen, especially Villanova University, whose basketball team is ranked 11th in the nation in the US!
Here’s an excerpt from the WordPress analysts:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,400 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.
