Happy New Year 2016 And Year Recap
I love when Word Press sends out the annual report. It gives me opportunity to wish everyone a happy New Year, express my appreciation, and recap the year.
Subscribed followers increased this year, and I want to thank them for their support. It’s at a number now where I don’t get around to each of their blogs to check them out, but I do make good-faith efforts and resolve that in the coming year, I will spend time on the week-ends visiting the blogs of new subscribed followers.
We have been nominated for another award, and I plan to officially accept it in the coming days.
Last year, it was a pleasant surprise to see that Steve Harvey linked to this blog. This year, snopes linked to this blog to support what they reported, and Wikipedia linked to it when discussing what they should publish about an issue. Wikipedia also linked to my other blog, flightattendantfailures, which reports investigative pieces regarding people on the internet who threaten others with harm because of race, and/or their work in activism.
In July last year, the options were changed here so that comments could only be submitted through a Word Press account. Word Press now allows for logging-in to comment through Facebook or Twitter accounts. Since selecting that option, spam and harassing comments have been reduced by an estimated 99 percent.
This was a trying year for me. There have been many distractions. One major distraction has been removed and in the coming year, I’m looking forward to directing my energy to blogging more. You might have noticed that although the URL is the same, the title of this blog was changed to “We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident” with the subline, “that all men are created equal.” That best describes our focus.
The following is the Word Press annual report for this blog.
May the New Year bring you joy, energy, excellent health, and peace. May all of your needs be met.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 130,000 times in 2015. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 6 days for that many people to see it.
