Play for Today

So 2015 did come!

I mean, not for the folks on AirAsia 8501 or some victims of the flu......but for most of us, we made it into another year.


Again, no big goals. Yoga will remain one of them - mostly because I enjoy it. I'm actually (probably) going to class today even.

Career is another. That's always in the back - or front - of my mind.

....and that's about it. Family probably falls in there somewhere.

Like I did last year, for the blog we have a few pieces of info you might (or might not) find interesting - 2014 specific *:
  • Number of posts: 396. 365+31 for the Pic a Day in May. 
  • Number of unique page views: 199,523.  Up 14.9% from 2013.
  • Month w most page views: March 2014 w 23,550 
  • Number of comments: 1,354 (an increase of 4.6%) ( comments always appreciated)
  • Top post for 2014: Theme for a Nude Beach w 217 views. After that the next four top posts were 
  • My top post of all times is still a 2010 post on Camel Toe which now has almost 104,000 (!!!) views. That is like 56,000 more hits since last year. (search terms: camel toe, cameltoe, yoga pants camel toe, girls in tight pants......yes, how well they know me)
  • Top Five Referring Sources (in order that is non-search engine related) are very different than before - by user and by order:  BosGuy. I Should be Laughing, Just a Jeep Guy (though somewhat defunct), Closet Professor and Jim's Stuff. Congrats to all. 
  • Viewing Audience Top Five Countries (in order): U.S., Germany, France, Ukraine, Russia.

*I'm not 100%convinced that Goooooogle Analytics are accurate. Or they might be, but their reporting methodology is sub par. The counts are actual posts clicked, I believe, not my general site. So I get a tick for you going to say, "Hot for Teacher", but not just scrolling through all of, which is a continual feed. I could be wrong.

As for rest of 2014 - we didn't make our movie goal. No big shock. We were one away. We almost hit a movie yesterday afternoon, but neither one of us could commit to sitting in a theater in the middle of the afternoon on a sunny (but freezing day). Still 11 movies wasn't bad considering we didn't start until mid-May.

Well, that's it for my first 2015 post.
