Hello to you all and a Happy New Year. I hope that your holidays were peaceful. This year promises to be interesting as it marks the centenary of Paddy’s birth on February 11th. As yet I know of no significant events to mark this but we shall see what occurs.
It is now traditional to review the previous years’ activity on the blog and as such I attach the report for 2014 prepared as usual by the WordPress.com stats helper monkeys. The big numbers are that you made around 230,000 visits to view the 82 new posts which brings our numbers up to 660 posts on the blog.
Quite amazingly we are just two or three thousand visits away from having over one million visits since I started the blog in 2010. I am looking forward to sharing more Paddy related material with you in 2015, and also to your comments which can sometimes be challenging but always informative and often very helpful to others who seek information.
Here’s an excerpt from the WordPress report:
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 230,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 10 days for that many people to see it.
