Ertblog: 2012 in review

I was intrigued to get an email from WordPress with a 2012 annual report for this blog. It was fun to find which posts had got the most reaction. (Although I guessed as much.)

You can find a link to the report below.

Tonight marks the seventh anniversary of the start of my blogging ‘career’. On New Year’s Eve 2005, I wrote this brief post on the original Typepad Ertblog. It refers to a remarkable and poignant letter home from one of my ancestors from the Australian goldrush of the 1880s.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 7,300 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 12 years to get that many views.
