Thank you for 2013!

A window on Learning from Dogs for 2013.

On the last day of the year WordPress emails out a report to their blogging community, all seventy-four million of them, on how things went for the year.

So here’s the report for Learning from Dogs for 2013.


The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 130,000 times in 2013. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 6 days for that many people to see it.

In 2013, there were 379 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 1,924 posts. There were 874 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 394 MB. That’s about 2 pictures per day.

The busiest day of the year was March 16th with 3,980 views. The most popular post that day was Trust me, I’m an engineer!.

These are the posts that got the most views in 2013.

Two simple words from me – THANK YOU!

    1. Just wanted to use this reply to point out that I think Adam’s decision is a good one. Not that my opinion is worth two hoots more than the next insane person’s.

      (And here’s hoping this year may see something to be happy about, Mr. H.)


      1. Thank you. Have to say that as long as I don’t get preoccupied with the world at large, these remain very happy times. I wish the same to you. Plus would love to see some new posts coming along from Wibble.


      2. There are numerous wibble drafts in progress (many from a long while back); there must be something suitable I can dredge up. I don’t suppose you have any spare round tuits?
