2021 blogging in review (Thank you & Happy New Year 2022 !!!)


 

Happy New Year 2022… from SQL with Manoj !!!

 
As WordPress.com Stats helper monkeys have stopped preparing annual report from last few years for the blogs hosted on their platform. So I started preparing my own Annual Report every end of the year to thank my readers for their support, feedback & motivation, and also to check & share the progress of this blog.
 

As I mentioned in my last year’s annual report I could not dedicate enough time to blog in year 2019 & 2020, so it also continued in 2021 with fewer posts. Thus, due to inactivity of 2-3 years, the blog hits are remaining below ~1k hits per day which is very low from what I was getting earlier (around 3k to 3.5k hits per day). So, you can see a drastic decline of hits in 2021 year in the image below.

 
–> Here are some Crunchy numbers from 2021:

The Louvre Museum has a foot fall of ~10 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 245,470 times by 194,886 unique visitors in 2021. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about ~50 days for that many people to see it.

There were 18 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of ~1 MB. That’s about ~1 pictures every month.
