I just had an email through from the wordpress stats elves, and they’ve put together a report for me on who’s been reading this year. I’ve got to say, I’m pretty surprised at how many people have been coming here, despite the lack of updates, and also just how international my readership has been. People have been checking in from Brazil, South Africa, Egypt, Italy, and I can’t at the moment think of anyone I actually know from those countries. So hi to my international audience!
Here’s an excerpt from it:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,500 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 25 trips to carry that many people.
Since Beijing, the last thing I wrote about, I’ve dived with thresher sharks, rode a motorbike something like 1500km down Vietnam, been to the casinos of Macau, visited North Korea (briefly), stayed in a Buddhist temple, eaten many weird and wonderful creatures, and I’ve met tons of amazing people. All of that means that I haven’t really had too much time to update this blog.
I’m now in Melbourne, and intending to find myself a job out here. When that happens, I should have a more normal life, and time to actually write for a change. Which means that you should be able to look forward to much more activity on this site over the coming few months.
Anyway, happy new year to you all, and I hope that 2012 is a great year for you. Live, love, laugh. Meet strangers. Do something stupid. Go places just because they sound cool. I will be.
