Back in April, I sent you my first letter.
On Jan. 1, WordPress, the site provider for this blog, calculated some interesting statistics about the year that followed. Since the numbers say something about you, and about me, I thought I’d share them.
Letters from Alaska was viewed about 11,000 times in 2011.
During that time, I sent out 92 new letters. There were 227 pictures included. That’s about 4 pictures per week.
The busiest day of the year was October 7th with 167 views. The most popular post that day was Good news from Norway.
Most of you are from the United States. The United Kingdom & Italy are not far behind. There are also readers from Brazil, the Netherlands, Norway, France, India, Spain, the Philippines, Tunisia, Australia, and many other countries.
These were my most popular letters in 2011.:
1 Good news from Norway 20 comments October 2011
2 Book giveaway 40 comments June 2011
3 Hateful things 22 comments August 2011
4 Floating through a powerful world 14 comments July 2011
5 Warning: May contain bear hot dogs 18 comments July 2011
A special thank you to Sue Mathis, the Baers, Nathan Dunbar and Sarah Davis — you have been the most regular contributors to the comments section. You make blogging fun!
And I want to thank all of you, regular subscribers and occasional visitors, for this past year. Without a reader, a letter is a rather useless thing.
Wishing all of you a happy New Year!
