Hosting my blog on WordPress.com gives me a lot of information.  A lot of it is really valuable in learning about where your readers come from, which posts were the most popular and more.

WordPress.com sent me a summary of my activity for the year 2013 and I’d like to share some of it with you.  The first factoid is the date and post which brought in the most activity.

Crunchy numbers

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 34,000times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 13 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

In 2013, there were 164 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 1,040 posts. There were 280pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 59 MB. That’s about 5 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was October 13th with271 views. The most popular post that day was Sun and Sand, Sangria and Surfing plus Salmon, It’s Saturday-DAY 6.

Attractions in 2013

These are the posts that got the most views in 2013. You can see all of the year’s most-viewed posts in your Site Stats.

Some of your most popular posts were written before 2013. Your writing has staying power! Consider writing about those topics again.  I would love to use this important data and write about these top posts but how to do so?  I’ve already written about the Bundling Board twice! 

Where did they come from?

139 countries in all! Including Indonesia, Brazil, Australia, Russia, India and the Phillipines and Japan
Most visitors came from The United States. Canada & The United Kingdom were not far behind.

My sincerest thanks to all of my regular readers and followers and a tip of the hat to those visitors who stop by to see specific posts;  Whether you’re looking for the original Candy Land board or a bundling board, or Central Park snow scenes or Central Park denizens or the Top Ten things to do in NYC at Christmastime or the Top Ten movie mistakes, thanks for visiting.

The Northeast is getting slammed this winter with snow storms, blizzards, snow lightning , you name it and we’ve gotten it.  This past Wednesday night we had yet another snow storm.  By morning 19 inches had fallen in Central Park.  Central Park is Manhattan’s emerald jewel in the summer  and alternatively a sparkly diamond and an iridescent opal in the winter.

As my regular readers know, many many of my Fab Foto Friday photos are taken in Central Park.  There’s just so much to see at any time of the year.  The birds, the flowers, the trees, the ponds, the landmarks, the bridges, the kids, the artists, the playgrounds, the picnicker, the runners, the skaters, the mimes, the jugglers, the acrobats, the break dancers, the gardens, the sculpture, the boats and ever so much more!

This Friday (and yes I am once again a day late) our Fab Fotos are from Central Park in all its beauty enhanced by 19″ of snow! This is what life in the City is when it snows!!!

...a pocket full of rye.

Four and twenty blackbirds

Baked in a pie

When the pie was opened

The birds began to sing

Wasn’t that a dainty dish

To set before a king!

And then I looked up to the sky

Soon to be a distant memory

I thought these photos were great – the beauty of nature and the artistry of the camera captured a “Mother Nature Moment” in Central Park.  These photographs were taken near Bethesda Fountain.
