Happy New Year, Friends! Before We Hit the Ground Blogging, Here’s the Summary for 2012

Dear friends and unconditionally devoted readers, I officially wish you a Happy New Year! 2013 holds so much promise for us all, and I trust that we have all started to make great things happen already.

Before my first major post of the year, I thought to share some details about activities on this blog, Gbenga’s Notebook, for 2012 as made available by WordPress.

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 10,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 17 years to get that many views.

In 2012, there were 34 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 205 posts. The busiest day of the year was February 24th with 171 views. The most popular post that day was In 2012: It’s 100 Books or 20,000 Pages! – Plus BONUS link!!!.


Some of the most popular posts were written before 2012, so WordPress thinks that my writing has staying power! I will consider writing about those topics again this year.

As I round-up this post, here a special shout out to the top commenters on this blog for 2012: itunu, Naijamum in L., Mimi, Joseph Omotayo,and Tosin. Thank you all for coming back regularly, even when my various involvements and offline activities (and inactivities) meant I had to blog less. Here’s hoping for a better 2013.

Tomorrow, I will be sharing a bit about my “Next Big” writing project. Thanks, and please watch this space! :)
