Last year I wrote a post about the statistics on this blog out of interest to see which posts were the most popular. I decided to do this again this year using the number of views a post has attracted. Still way out in front is the one about the world’s tallest totem pole so I suspect this is down to the search engines!
- Alert Bay V | The World’s Tallest Totem Pole (2013)
- Passion Facade Doors (2017)
- Lincoln Cathedral – stained glass (2017)
- Nativity façade doors (2017)
- Road Trip | Cape Town to Hermanus (2013)
- The Magic of May (2014)
- Call to Place | India (2019)
- Geology of Cornwall (2015)
- Misericords of St Laurence (2015)
- Call to Place | Australia (2018)
Interestingly only one of these posts was written in 2019. So it seems the older posts still attract views. This year I reblogged a lot of my older travel posts that hadn’t had much attention when they were originally posted and I tried out some new methods of travel writing linking up with Cathy over at ~wander.essence~ with more personal tales rather than the typical tourist information. Even some poetry crept in! If you need some ideas to liven up your blog then pop over and see the interesting ‘invitations’ that Cathy has on her site.
I wrote several new posts about Paris which attracted quite a lot of likes and comments and was going to do the same about other cities I have visited in the past like Lisbon, but life was interrupted again in the summer when my son came down for another operation and I was doing daily hospital visits when he was back in for another month due to an infection.
The October Squares photography challenge (hosted by Becky) proved popular (she has a new challenge starting in January if you would like to join in) and then I ended the year writing about my long ago adventure travelling overland on the so-called Hippie Trail which also attracted a lot of likes and more importantly to me, comments.
What to do in 2020 is a big question. I shall be starting with the January Square photography challenge and I hope to do more travel writing, poetry and actual travelling this year. I am also going to challenge myself (and I invite you to join in if you would like to) by looking at certain photographic techniques this year. See my 2020 Photo Challenge for more information.
In the meantime I thank all my visitors to this site: your likes and especially your comments mean a lot to me and encourage me to continue to post on this blog as well as my Cornish home. I wish you all a happy, healthy and exciting New Year
